Constructed of a 4mm-thick aluminum base plate and 3mm-thick side plates for heavy-duty, light-weight protection. Where the base plates and side plates overlap, it forms a riveted 7mm-thick rail for extra rigidity. Base plate includes side protectors that wrap around the engine block to provide both bottom and side protection. Baseplate includes side protectors that wrap around the engine block to provide both bottom (including the rear suspension knuckle) and side protection. Includes a cut-out for oil drain screw to allow for easy oil changes.
Note: On US Explorer 1200 models the EVAP canister interferes with the fitment of this skidplate. Prior to installation, the EVAP canister must be removed or the skidplate must be cut to allow for clearance (please note that the warranty is void once the skidplate has been modified).
