    The team at Custom Off-road were so amazing. With a SWB, I checked with them to make sure the three-piece bash plates would fit and they were super quick to get back to me. I am so happy with how they look, especially with the turquoise front plate which looks great! Really appreciated all their communication throughout the process and their commitment to delivering high-quality products. Thanks so much and will definitely be recommending your products to anyone with a 4×4!

  9. Jeff H (verified owner)

    Grabbed the 3mm stainless plates to replace the factory setup which was falling apart. The plates are great and super simple to install and they look cool. I can’t believe I put up with the factory plates for so long. Don’t hesitate.

  10. Lou (verified owner)

    Great plates , even a blonk like me fitted them easily. Just returned from the Cape and no problem at all

  11. Gerry (verified owner)

    2 piece set easy to order, delivered during time frame as advised and I fitted easily as bolts included. Good solid plates.

  12. jun (verified owner)

    Good set of plates, the owner Simon was extremely helpful in resolving some issues with the shipment, shows how dedicated the team at CustomOffroad is.

  13. Martin Leech

    Bought 2 piece 3mm stainless steel for the Pajero. I actually just rocked up at their premises and the boys sorted me out.

    Super easy to install if you can slide under the car and have a decent sprocket set. Obviously even easier if you have a hoist.

    Hardest part was taking off the protective wrapper after I installed them (I might take the wrapper off before I install a set on my son’s Challenger!!). Doh!

    For a pen pusher like me – these were super easy to fit (remove 6 bolts and replace with bolts supplied) and the quality is amazing.

  14. Robbo (verified owner)

    SERIUSLY An EXELLENT Purchase for my Pajero.
    Tough as nails,easy to fit and just paid for itself after a week out bush.
    love it!!!!

  27. Jim Xoutha (verified owner)

    I ordered the front and sump bash plates for my NP, delivery was amazing no issues what so ever 4 days max I was over the moon. Same day they were painted and installed and boy does it look awesome, not only that my sump guard is now steel not plastic adventure time here we come. Thanks guys

  28. Shane (verified owner)

    Great product, fitment was a breeze done in no time at all as they bolted straight up. Stainless steel plate are well made and look awesome, quick delivery and highly recomend the product.

  29. Kyle (verified owner)

    So far so good. I installed it the front and sump plates on my NT with a nudge bar. I would recommend these guys supply a longer (2x) bolt for anyone with a nudge bar as the stock ones that I had didn’t work so well. I had to rip to bunnings to get 2x longer M8 bolts to fit. Good customer service and quickas shipping!

    Word of advice, make sure you don’t bust any bolts when removing the OEM plates – this happened to me and it was a nightmare trying to remove the old bot.

  30. Mark Fabian (verified owner)

    Got them for my son’s Pajero. Great value Aussie product after the original and expensive Mitsubishi parts failed. The Custom Offroad Accessories, SS bash plates are well built and look mint. Highly recommended.

  31. Nick (verified owner)

    I havent fitted the bashplates yet, but they look very well built, and i was very impressed at the customer service i received from staff when i had a few queries for them… For me – decent customer service is important – id happily reccommend Custom Offroad to others.

  32. Danny (verified owner)

    Ordered for my NW. Came inside a week from purchase during peak COVID period impacting delivery all over East Coast. Excellent fit and finish. Very happy with the value for money.

  33. Dale (verified owner)

    Great product – Stainless is the way to go. I did however bend the end 40mm of the end plate up at 30ø to reduce the ‘shovel’ effect if reversing back over the rough stuff (of mud).
    Would I recommend this product… Yes already have!

  34. cory acosta (verified owner)

    I opted for the front 2 bash plates with the “pajero” name display, front one fit perfect, sump plate took some work to install but that was due to a slightly twisted cross member, the plate was NOT the issue. all in all the products are great.
    Arrived 3-4 days before estimated delivery.

  35. Kirsten (verified owner)

    Great product, very happy withthem and the service and postage.

  36. Jabez mcgann (verified owner)

    Very tidy product exactly as described
    Well priced
    Extremely easy to fit
    Wish I had bought the stainless to save the bother of painting
    Thankyou custom off road

  37. Ken Eade (verified owner)

    I went for the 3-piece which fitted perfectly and is a highly accurate manufacture. All holes millimetre perfect. Totally satisfied, though I did slot the rear holes for the engine sump guard so I can remove it without dropping the transmission plate front bolts.

  38. Chris Cobb (verified owner)

    looks great
    the mechanic that fitted the kit remarked it was the first brand of plates that needed virtually no modification to bolt straight on
    delivery time was tops

  39. Ivan Chapman (verified owner)

    Great product bolted straight on, no redrilling required. Guards came within specified time ,even though we are in regional WA.
    Very happy with service .

  40. Tony Whitehall (verified owner)

    I purchased the Pajero stainless steel bash plates to replace the ones damaged when I hit a kangaroo (also damaged my front Diff) as they were cheaper than the replacement genuine parts. They were easy to fit and look great. From online order to delivery was 4 days that was awesome, Thanks Custom Offroad, have recently highly recommended Custom Offroad bash plates to family and friends regards Tony.

  41. Richard Caruana (verified owner)

    Chatted with Custom Offroad before purchase and was satisfied with buying the Stainlees Steel Bash plates. Got all three Frontdiff/Sump and Transmission which extends to protect the Transfer case as well. Easy to install and look great.
    Only wish they made the plates for the rear bumper bar and fuel tank. Hopfully in the future.
    Very happy with purchase.

  42. Brendan prattent (verified owner)

    Products super well made. Nice design and fitted perfectly. Would highly recommend.

  43. Santhosh Nair (verified owner)

    Got the stainless steel bash plates fitted to my Pajero. Have gone for couple of drives after that. They are strong, fit nicely and look great.
    I requested next day delivery and Simon made sure it happened in this COVID time.

With your purchase of the Stainless Steel plates, make sure the plates fit before removing the protective film. If your plates don’t fit or have any other problem, the protective film needs to stay in tacked in order to receive a replacement set or a refund. Mild Steel Plates please check fitment and paint before use. We have included M8 30mm bolts to screw into the chassis and 2 X M10 bolts, nylon lock nuts and a clamping plate for fit the transmission plate.

Front and Sump Plates

Start with the sump plate, this will go directly under the motor. Slots go to the rear and holes to the front. When installing the front plate, line up the back of the plate with the front of the sump plate and use the same bolts. This will line the front of the plate to the existing holes. Always overlap front to back.

Transmission Plate

The front of the transmission will bolt into the two mounts welded onto the cross member on the opposite side to the sump. The rear of the transmission plate is going to clamp on the transfer case cross member lip. Depending on your model, measure from the mounts to the lip to get the correct 2 holes on the plate as to where to place the clamp. PHOTOS ON THE WEBSITE. The lip of the transfer case cross member will go in between the clamp plate and the transmission plate using a sandwiching technique. Use the lip on the rear side of the vehicle and the 2 x M10 with nylon lock nuts..

Is it in stock?

Our aim is to consistently maintain our stock levels so that we can get our plates to you as soon as poosible. However, in the event your plate is unavailable, the turnaround is generally between 1 to 2 weeks. This timeframe is well below the industry average as our plates are made right here in Brisbane, Australia!

What is a Diff Drop?

A diff drop is a modification that physically lowers your diff away from the chassis in order to bring the CV angles back into alignment and closer to the factory specifications. Ultimately, the reason for considering a diff drop is to minimise the CV shaft angle that is increased by the addition of a suspension lift. As a general rule, if you have lifted your suspension by at least 2 inches then you should consider dropping the diff!

Does it fit with my brand of Diff Drop/Bull Bar?

Our plates are designed to fit with a large range of bull bar setups. If your 4WD currently retains the factory plates, and has a bull bar installed, then our plates will fit. The majority of our bash plates support a diff drop, however, we advise you consult the individual product pages for more information regarding the make and model of the 4WD you wish to fit plates to.

Why do I need to upgrade my underbody protection plates?

In a market saturated with an endless list of must have upgrades for your 4×4 often underbody protection is overlooked. Vehicle manufactures do not consider bash plates essential to the performance of the car even though they are producing cars for offroad use.

Over the years, the market has seen a shift away from the older live axle cars to the more comfortable riding independent front suspension “IFS”. Whilst making the car more pleasant to drive this means vital components such as the radiator, sump, diff actuator and transfer case become more vulnerable.

Vehicle owners are often unaware or reluctant to invest in bash plates as they consider their offroading to be tame or “only beach use”. Some of the worst damage we have seen to the underside of cars has been sustained on the beach navigating a cutting or hitting a washout at speed. Often the damage will render the car un-driveable with split radiators or damaged actuators making the car 2wd.

Bash plates should be one of the first modifications carried out before heading offroad. The damage that can occur, the cost of recovery and repairs vs the purchase price is a simple equation.

What thickness do I need?

Many enthusiasts consider the thicker the plate the better! This is true to a point but what some “experts” don’t consider is when your plates sustain a hit the pressure and shock has to be absorbed somewhere. If the plate has no flex what so ever the shock is then put back into the mounts which are welded to your chassis. It is much easier and cheaper to replace bash plates after a few years rather than repairing your mounts or chassis!

We offer a range of thicknesses based on your preference, vehicle and type of 4 wheel driving. With plates ranging from 3mm to 4mm for the more common dual cabs through to 4mm standard for heavier vehicles.

Stainless or Mild Steel?

After countless 4wd trips the one thing I kept replacing the most was my underbody protection. Although they did get a good beating the main problem was the rust factor, especially from my love of beach driving.

My car would look great all polished and washed except for underneath that was bent out of shape and covered with surface rust. I designed a set out of stainless steel because of the resistance to corrosion and the strength to get a better, more durable life out of my bash plates.

The stainless steel comes in a 2b matte grey finish which holds up great against scratching and with the extra strength of the stainless I’ve tried my best to knock them out of shape with no success. If you are after a bash plate that you would like to put on and not have to change every 6 months stainless is the way to go.

What is the Weight of the Plates?

Built using qulaity stainless steel, our Bash Plates provide the perfect weight to strength ratio for your 4×4. As each Make and Model is different so too is the weight of each plate. However, as a general rule, a 3 piece set of 3mm thickness, usually weighs between 24kg & 30kg, while a 3 piece set of 4mm thickness, usually weighs between 35kg & 40kg.

Please consult the product page of the vehicle you’re interested in for an accurate weight for those Bash Plates.
