Land Cruiser 200 Series (2008-2017) Skid Plates
Stage 1 (Rock Armor) is designed for drivers who need a significant increase of front end and engine protection along with an easy maintenance design that only BudBuilt can offer. Stage 1 replaces the factory thin sheet metal and plastic splash shields. Standing as the only line of defense from the forward most crossmember, to behind the rear engine crossmember. Constructed from pure American 3/16" (4.76mm) thick, LASER cut, and CNC press brake formed steel. We will never use lower grade Chinese or Indian raw materials to protect your vehicle's expensive underbelly.
BudBuilt utilizes a clean, extremely precise Laser cutting method instead of industry standard plasma cutting. Plasma is limited only to cutting; our laser can cut, drill, engrave, and weld, giving us a distinct advantage over the industry standard. Our protection systems are more precisely fitted to the frame, with tighter tolerances, stronger edges, cleaner cuts, and OEM level of product refinement.
BudBuilt utilizes every possible attachment point, as well as additional load distributing supports, and overlapping plate designs to eliminate frame crossmembers from crushing inward during hard impacts.
