2008-2021 Land Cruiser 200 Series and LX570 Transmission Skid Plate

Catalytic converters are expensive.  There are four of them welded into two mid pipes that cost over $2000 to replace, protect them accordingly.  This skid was the skid that required Bud to do extensive heat testing because of the incredible heat that a Toyota 5.7L V8 can create.  Seven months, three states, souther summer temperatures, low range rock crawling.  We tested over 20 areas under the 200 platform with factory skids, with no skids, with several different BudBuild Prototype skid plates.  The final sharp of this skid plate creates the same temperatures as no skids under the transmission, but protecting the vulnerable catalytic converts.  When the front axle comes off an obstacle or ledge, you will always hit right in the center of the transmission pan.  If there is off center rock, it could be the end of that cat.  This skid was further reinforced with four asymmetrical internal reinforcing ribs to minimize bending under a three ton plus Toyota.
