The ultimate protection for your engine and transmission. Full protection from the rear cross member, all the way forward under the front core support to protect your radiator too. Available with access holes for engine oil and drain plug to allow easy servicing, or full plate with no holes for total skid protection (plate removal required for service).

Mounting is easy with 4 bolts, and no drilling required. To remove solid skid plate for service, removal is easy with just 4 nut and bolt removal—takes just 10 minutes or less.

Aluminum plates are 3/16” thick and weigh about 20 pounds. They have a light brush finish.

Steel plates are 1/8” thick and weigh about 32 pounds. They come in a bare steel finish without coating—you can spray paint or powder coat to your desired finish, or just go patina style.

The aluminum and steel plates have similar strength due to differences in plate thickness.

All required mounting hardware is included.

Will work with stock exhaust–OR–gain over an inch of additional ground clearance with the use of our High Clearance Exhaust sold separately. Hardware included for both.

    I take my Rav4 most places people wouldn’t take there truck, from my farm to logging roads. Got the steel plate to keep from busting my oil pan. The quality of the bends and precision cut holes are as good if not better than any other off-road plate I’ve installed on my trucks and jeeps. I’ve had it installed with the factory exhaust and then with the High Clearance Exhaust Pipe. First time I installed with the help of a lift and another person, second time was by myself with car ramps, both were doable but a second person is ideal. There instructions were very clear and all of the hardware bolts fit same as factory. Overall good product and i wish i bought it a long time ago.

    My favorite product that I purchased from NWP. Top notch quality by looking at the cut and finish. Now I feel a lot more confident going on trails, knowing the underside is protected. Oh, and I bought the high clearance exhaust, also top notch quality, for that extra ground clearance.

    This is an amazing product for my RAV4. Along with the high clearance exhaust I have more confidence driving over obstacles and any snow pile built up at the end of my driveway from the snowplows
