2007-2021 Tundra and 2008-2022 Seqouia Skid Plate Set

From: CAD$1,175.29

This is a welded, powdercoated and ready-to-install drivetrain skid plate set for the 2nd generation (2007-2021) Toyota Tundra and (2008-2022) Toyota Sequoia. This 2-piece set mounts using all factory mounting points (no drilling required) and provides excellent protection of the radiator, front differential, engine oil pan, steering rack, transmission and transfer case. To maximize ground clearance, we use a dual angle front plate that tucks in as close to the frame as possible, providing the best approach angle of any skid plate set on the market. We've used a dual-wall construction at the highest impact area as well as multiple ribs that run the length of the skid set. These features make these skid plates drastically stronger than other skid plates on the market which are simply bent into shape with little to no reinforcements and inadequate mounts. The Tundra and Sequoia are big heavy vehicles. Ensure that your vehicle's expensive drivetrain components are protected from the sheer force of its own weight!

 

Description

When designing this skid plate set, we set out to strike the optimum balance of protection, ground clearance and weight. While this skid plate set provides total protection of the engine and drivetrain components, it at the same time avoids covering any areas that are unnecessary. This minimizes the size of the low-points that the skid plates create as well as keeps the weight as low as possible. In fact, this entire set weighs 106lbs in 3/16″ steel or 52lbs in 1/4″ aluminum, which helps preserve your vehicles payload capacity and fuel economy. This is especially noteworthy when you consider the amount of reinforcements we’ve used in the high impact areas of this skid plate set.

Starting at the front edge of the engine skid plate, we mount this plate to the factory crossmember and main frame rails using 6 mounting points. While this is totally overkill, it ensures impact forces are distributed evenly over your Tundra’s frame and gives extra mounting options in case some of your factory mounting points are rusted or otherwise damaged.  Moving to the front bottom edge of the engine skid, this is by far the area that sees the hardest and most frequent impacts on the trail. To account for this, we integrated a double-wall reinforcement box that rests against a large surface area of the vehicle’s frame. This makes this area of the skid plate nearly indestructible and will distribute those hard trail impacts over as large of a section of the vehicle’s frame as possible. At the rear edge of the engine skid plate, we use 2 more large thru-bolts and a nut plate to mount it to the front differential crossmember. This skid plate set is also provided with spacers that make it compatible with aftermarket differential drop kits.

The front skid plate does require removal for oil and oil filter changes. However, the provided bolt access holes mean all mounting hardware can be quickly and easily accessed with an impact gun. This makes for such quick removal of the skid plate that we purposely opted not to add additional holes and access panels for oil changes. We find that these access panels always create weak points in the skid plate and often end up getting deformed by trail impacts anyways. This skid plate set was built with strength as the top priority so you can drive your Tundra/Sequoia through the toughest trails with confidence.

For the rear skid plate, we use three large vertical ribs that span the length between the differential and transmission crossmembers. These ribs fit tightly between the frame crossmembers, eliminating any weak points where the skid plate will bend under a hard impact. The fitment and size of these reinforcing ribs makes this skid plate extremely stiff with minimal weight gain over a simple flat skid plate. While the 4 bolt heads on the bottom of this skid plate are exposed, all of these mounting points use long thru-bolts that thread into nuts placed on the topside of each frame crossmember. This means that any damaged bolt heads can still be easily removed via the nuts on top, which are very well protected and out of harms way. We prefer this solution over bolt protection rings welded to the bottom side of the skid plate like some other skid plate sets use. These protection rings increase the size of the low hang-up points and often end up getting smooshed against the bolt heads anyways in the event of hard trail impacts! This skid plate is offset to the passenger side to reduce its footprint under the vehicle, minimizing additional weight and unnecessary ground clearance losses.
