Land Cruiser 200 Series 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.
100% bolt on, no welding, no fabricating
Includes engine oil drain plug and filter access, never requiring armor to be removed for routine maintenance
Edges are formed for strength and rigidity with area to allow for cleaning and mud removal
Protects radiator, front alignment cams, and engine oil pan
Recessed fasteners provide a smooth surface, leaving nothing to hang up on
BudBuilt will never cut our logo into a skid plate, weakening the armor, in an effort to advertise
100% North American steel, handcrafted in North Carolina to last
3/16" Steel - 76
Durable and strong, steel is the workhorse of armor. Ready to take hard hits from rocks and stumps. We recommend 3/16" steel where the application sees occasional to frequent rock impacts. Steel requires powder coating or user-applied paint to prevent rust.
3/16" Stainless Steel - 76
With the same durability and strength of steel, stainless steel has the additional benefit of not requiring paint to prevent rust. Most of our stainless steel users choose this material because with regular rock impacts, even industrial powder coating can be scraped off. Stainless steel offers users the freedom to drag our armor over obstacles and not require prepping and repainting impact areas.
BudBuilt, being one of the few industry manufactures to not just design, but build in house, can easily customize any product for you. If you have an idea, call us, our passion is to help you bring your dream into reality. We will always ensure that any item that leaves our shop is fit for the BudBuilt name. A well engineered, well designed, overly strong and lasting product.
We utilize a higher quality industrial powder coating process thru Powder River Technologies. The process is second to none, from the white metal blasting and iron phosphate wash, to the zinc primer and Cardinal top coating, your product will be professionally finished. We can do almost any color and texture. Visit
our powder supplier, for color charts and texture options. Please allow an additional week for powder coated items to ship, due to the attention to detail of the coating process and the transportation time between shops.
All BudBuilt products are sanded and prepped prior to shipment, ready for you to paint the color of your choice. All items will usually just need a final wipe down with solvent before applying paint. Bare metal helps to keep the cost of the parts down and allows you to fully customize your rig.
