This armor protects the Steering Rack and the Front Differential, while permitting easy draining/filling of the front differential. This armor offers a smooth transition between the forwardmost crossmember of the chassis, and the suspension crossmember, allowing rocks, branches and other debris a smooth path to slide under the skid plate. This armor can be run on a stock truck, and is also compatible with the Expedition One front bumper and integral skid plate. This protects key powertrain components, and is the second major element in our system to protecting the most exposed elements of the powertrain on the 2019+ Ram 1500’s.
Construction: The Skid is manufactured from formed 3/16″ HRPO steel plate that bridges the two forward crossmembers, and has a cutout surrounding the front differential oil drain to allow for easy oil changes without removing the Skid.
Installation: This armor is a bolt-on package with all necessary hardware included. Designed to work in conjunction with our Engine/Transmission skid plate, an Expedition One front bumper & skid plate, and OEM protection elements.
