(2008-2021) Land Cruiser 200 Series and LX570 Skid Plates
Designed to work in tandem with our Front Skid plate.
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. Replaces the factory plastic plastic splash shields.
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.
This skid feature five forward mounting points and massive rear crossmember matting surface to gently
impact load across the widest surface area in the aftermarket. This engine skid features very small bends along the entire length of the skid adding to its strength and rigidity along with maximum side folds. Giving the edge of a skid a 90º bend increased bending astronomically and while hard to make fit around the oil drain plug door, we pulled it off.
100% bolt on, no welding, no fabricating
Designed to work in tandem with our front skid plate
Includes engine oil drain plug armored door, 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 and round head 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" High Carbon Steel
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
With the same durability and strength of steel, 304 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.
1/8" (3.175mm) "Lite" Steel
A great, cost effective alternative to aluminum, 1/8" lite steel will protect your drivetrain from damage. We recommend 1/8" lite steel where the application sees regular off-roading, yet very limited potential for regular sharp rock impacts. 1/8" lite steel is more susceptible to denting than 3/16" steel, yet this issue only presents itself during heavy single point impacts, like that of a large sharp rock. 1/8" lite steel requires powder coating or user-applied paint to prevent rust.
1/4" (6.35mm) Aluminum Alloy
Strength without the weight. Our 3003 laser cut aluminum alloy has the same strength levels as our 3/16" steel, but at a faction of the weight. We
recommend aluminum where the application sees regular off-roading, yet limited potential for dragging on hard surfaces like rocks. While 1/4" aluminum has the strength to handle heavy rock impacts, it is much more susceptible to galling than steel, when dragged over rocks.
results in what looks like fine aluminum shavings by the rock that was dragged down the plate.
Another way of thinking about this is by first stating that
aluminum has no problem at impacting an obstacle, it's what happens after impact that matters. After impact, if your driving style is to reassess the trail and choose a better line, aluminum is the right choice. If your driving style is to continue on the same line, as in rock crawling applications, we would recommend our 3/16" steel (Rock Armor) systems. Aluminum does
not require prepping and repainting impact areas to prevent rust.
