The engine skid plate will cover and protect the trucks low hanging aluminum front differential and the oil pan on the Xterra or Frontier. By design it will provide easy access to drain the engine oil.
The skid plate is made of 3/16" thick steel CNC plasma cut and bent to specification to add strength and to reinforce the edges. It does mount solidly to the frame of the truck and is designed for easy bolt-up installation with minimal drilling.
The engine skid plate requires drilling four 3/8” holes – this is to make it stronger without relying on the weak M8 OEM holes. If the radiator skid plate was purchased – it will share two holes with that one.
Besides giving peace of mind, these skid plates will help the truck get over obstacles by preventing the truck chassis cross-members from catching on whatever it is driving over.
NOW AVAILABLE by popular demand! Aluminum skid plates. Designed to strict standards, our new aluminum skid plates offer nearly 80% the strength of our steel skids but at only half the weight. With our aluminum skids, enjoy peace of mind knowing that the vital components of the truck are protected without sacrificing fuel economy.
