(2008-2021) Land Cruiser 200 Series and LX570 Front Skid Plate

Requires Engine Skid plate to mount properly.  Will NOT work as a stand alone skid plate.

As the first skid to make contact under your 200, we built this skid to handle the onslaught year after year while transferring as little impact load to the radiator crossmember as possible.  The front frame section of a Land Cruiser 200 and LX570 still required meeting collision safety standards.  As such, the frame horns are designed to fail under relatively light impacts.  The need to protect the front end, while not transferring the impact load to the forward most crossmember, led to this unique design.  The second crossmember is substantially stronger and the front skid mounts to the lead edge of the engine skid (the second skid plate we offer).  This design takes all the front end beating load and delivers it to the engine cradle where collision impact was designed from Toyota to not crush, because that area of the frame needs to protect front seat passengers.  This design makes the lead edge double the thickness of the skids selected.  If ordering an Aluminum front skid and an aluminum engine skid, the lead edge is 1/2" thick aluminum.  If ordering an aluminum from skid and a 3/16" stainless steel engine skid, the lead edge thickened is still 1/2" of material!

We do not offer our lite steel (1/8" or 3.175mm) thick plates for the front skid plate.  Lite steel is a good choice for weight and cost savings, but on the short front skid, those two factors don't offer enough benefit and the strength is not appropriate for that lead skid plate.
