The first skid plate panels system specifically designed for SUVs, these panels feature the same construction as the current range of panels, i.e.. pressed and folded 3mm steel. Due to the Prado 120/150, 4Runner and FJ Cruiser sharing the same chassis platform, the same skid plate design has been used for the four vehicles. However, a second kit has been built to suit the Prado 150 and 2010+ 4Runner with Kinetic suspension system as a slightly different lower bulge is required in the front panel due to the positioning of the kinetic sway bar. The transmission panel is common to both kits and also to petrol and diesel engine variants. It has a two position mounting bracket providing a lower mount for petrol engine vehicles where the exhaust sits lower than diesel models. The transmission panel is also tapered to the rear to clear chassis bracing that is unique to the Prado/FJ chassis design. Developed with extensive field testing, ARB skid plates give protection to vital underbody components with vehicle specific models protecting steering, engine oil panel, transmission and transfer case where applicable. Panels are easily removed for vehicle servicing and where practical, include access to oil panel drain plugs. Each panel has recessed mounting bolts in vulnerable areas to ensure ease of removal even if the panels become damaged from severe off road service. ARB Skid Plate are fully compatible with all ARB products such as Bull Bars, Side Rail & Steps, Airlocker and OME.
It was my first time replacing a skid plate and with KDSS on 4runner 2016 trail.
Good news, with a little help we where able to successfully install this skid plate.
I do recommend this product as replacement to the original stock skid plate
Will this skid plate work with 4Runners equipped with KDSS suspension? The factory accessory skid plate conflicts with the KDSS sway bar.
