The 100 Series Skid Plate System constist of three parts:
The Belly Pan replaces the existing transmission cross member and provides protection for the transfercase, torsion bar mounts and catalytic converters. It also serves as a theft deterent for the catalytic converters. Formed out of 3/16" hot rolled steel. The intermediate guard and front plate are available in 5052 aluminum. All plates are supplied in black powder coat.
The skid plate has a built in cross member with a support plate for the transfer case. This ensures a direct bolt in application using factory hardware.
The belly plate bolts in using factory locations as well as three new holes that need to be drilled and fitted with M10 rivet nuts. The rivet nuts are supplied with the skidplate, however the tooling is not. We can supply that if needed.
The plate has a hole located underneath the drainplug of the transfer case to ensure easy fluid changes.
The plate also have a flange on the front that serves as the mounting area for the intermediate Guard. The Belly Plate can be used as a stand alone system or as the starting point for the skid plate system.
A 2.5" hole facilitates fluid draining without the need to remove the skid plate.
The Intermediate Guard provides protection for the transmission pan. The guard bolts to the flange on the Belly Pan and connects to the differential cross member. The Intermediate Guards is designed to work with the Slee Diff Drop replacement cross member. The guard requires the Belly plate and can not be used on it's own.
The front skid plate is designed to provide protection of the front differential as well as radiator. It bolts to existing locations and is designed to fit with the Slee Diff Drop. The front skid plate can be used without any of the other plates installed.
