(2010-2020) 5th Gen 4Runner Skid Plates
Stage 1 (Rock Armor) is designed for those who refuse to let the trail beat them. Standing as the only line of defense from the forward most cross member, to behind the transfer case by use of an included, purpose-built reinforced steel cross member. Constructed from pure American 3/16″ (4.76mm) thick, LASER cut, and CNC press brake formed steel. We will never use lower grade Chinese or Indian raw materials to protect your vehicle’s expensive underbelly.
BudBuilt utilizes a clean, extremely precise Laser cutting method instead of industry-standard plasma cutting. Plasma is limited only to cutting; our laser can cut, drill, engrave, and weld, giving us a distinct advantage over the industry standard. Our protection systems are more precisely fitted to the frame, with tighter tolerances, stronger edges, cleaner cuts, and OEM level of product refinement.
BudBuilt utilizes every possible attachment point, as well as additional load distributing supports, and overlapping plate designs to eliminate frame cross members from crushing inward during hard impacts. Unlike the OEM design, our system completely isolates the transfer case from all potential impacts. Safeguarding your transfer case and transmission from expensive damage and breakdowns.
We at BudBuilt, do not want to sell you the same product twice, we take pride in knowing that our products will stand the test of time under regular abuse. Anyone can go exploring, but BudBuilt can bring you back.
