Gen-2 Ram HD Skid Plate Kits

Built on the experience of hundreds of Gen-1 units in use in the most extreme and demanding conditions around the world, the Gen-2 kit offers even more robust construction, easier installation, easier service and maintenance, and compatibility with OEM protection elements. This new kit is ideal for severe service Fleet-use and Individual-use applications alike.

 

 

Although several important components underneath the Ram HD trucks have some level of protection from the factory,  these trucks come critically unprepared to prevent damage to the most critical (and expensive) components of the drivetrain – the Engine and Transmission themselves. This skid was developed out of necessity following frequent damage to engines, transmissions and exhaust crossovers on these trucks, particularly those trucks used in forested and rocky areas. Increasing vulnerabilities even further, the 2019 Gas HD’s introduced a new 8-Speed transmission. While this is an excellent transmission, it uses a PLASTIC oil pan that is easily punctured by sticks or branches, or crushed by hard snow, mud or silt if the truck buries into the terrain. The new transmission’s shift actuator is also very exposed and easily damaged. This skid plate system is designed to offer protection to critical drivetrain components – the Engine oil pan, the Transmission oil pan, the Transmission Lines, Shift Mechanism, and the exhaust crossover tube.

In addition to protecting the vulnerable powertrain, the skid plate also offers a large surface area to help prevent the chassis sinking into silt, sand, mud and snow, making recovery faster and safer in those environments. These skid plates offer an enormously positive cost:benefit ratio and a huge benefit to mobility.

 

Construction: The Skid Plate is manufactured from massive CNC formed .250″ HRPO Steel. The Skid plate features a dip at the rear to clear the exhaust and offer protection to the mounting hardware, and unique mounting at the front to clear the axle and engine during suspension cycling. Clearance holes within the skid plate offer drainage and heat dissipation, while keeping weight in check. The main plate has a cutout surrounding the Engine oil drain to allow for easy oil changes without removing the Skid, and the main plate itself is easy to remove for transmission service.

Installation: Very user-friendly and expedient installation & servicing, with no fabrication required by the installer; hardware is included and only basic hand tools are required
