    Hey All

    So it would appear the lowest, and thus most likely place to hit, on the new generation of Tacomas is the exhaust crossover which runs under the transfer case. This was definitely not the case on my 99 Tacoma but with new trucks come new opportunities for new mods to fix new and different problems :). I guess my question is is what have people done to protect the tubing short of rerouting the exhaust?

    i know Allpro makes a skid plate but I definitely don't have $400 to spend on it. I know budbuilt makes some for less but I am not looking to cover the entire undercarriage just yet.

    I am thinking of getting a neighbor to help me make my own skid plate so i am looking for any ideas or advice.

    I'm curious. What did you come up with for your t-case skid solution?

    I only see four options.


    1. Armor Tech
    2. All Pro
    3. Bud-Built
    4. Full Custom
    Having the mf'n exhaust crossover rerouted is a must. Personally I'd like to see some quality pics of someones rerouted exhaust so I can visualize exactly how its done.

    Thanks. It protects the crossover. i have already taken a pretty big gouge out of it. next i might try to build one to protect the transfer case a little more.
