Differential Skid Plate for Tacoma/FJ Cruiser

well after nearly a year of thought, testing and design changes we are ready to start production !





Defined Engineering is now producing high quality bolt on differential skid plates for the 2nd gen Tacoma and FJ Cruiser. Works with both 8.4 and E-locker differentials. The skid plates are laser cut and CNC bent using 3/16” HRPO steel with 1/4” HRPO steel in critical areas. Then welded to perfection in one very robust fixture to create the ultimate hi strength skid structure.

Here at Defined Engineering we feel U-Bolts should be used on springs , not high quality armor .So we use Billet steel collar clamps at the axle tubes and a “Saddle & top block” design where the skid mounts to the pinion snout. All this creates a skid plate that is un-moveable in even the hardest hits.

Grade 8 hardware is always standard and ties everything together to create the Ultimate Toyota Differential Skid Plate.

for more information contact us at http://www.definedengineering.com/index.html

the pics below are one of our prototypes and our stout assembly/welding fixture

The driver side looks pretty wide have you guys ran into issues with it contacting the gas tank when the suspension is fully stuffed?

Still have yet to see a diff break due to smacking on a rock. Seen the pinion blow up cracking the third, i was under the impression the bottom of the axle is pretty beefy. Looks really clean.

I'm mainly interested in this for pinion/flange protection. The bottom of the rear diff housing is one of the strongest stock parts on the truck.
