Description

Our R51 bash plates will fit all most from 2005 to 2015. You must measure the 2 most forward mounting holes before purchase please.

The plates have been designed to replace the front factory plate and cover underneath the motor from the cross member the factory front plate finishes to the the second cross member towards the rear of the vehicle. The Transmission Plate will bolt to the sump plate and follow through to the next cross member with a 300mm over hang. We always recommend buying the 3 piece set but unfortunately some Bull Bars remove the front plate top mounting brackets.

*Before you purchase a Bull Bar check it does not remove the front plate top mounting brackets!!

Fitting Instructions of the second plate: Due to the 2 build locations and the models Rx, St, St-x and 550 there are different ways to mount.

A) The second cross member has welded nuts in side and the plate can be easily bolted on

B) The second cross member has holes going all the way through, we supply long bolts, washers and nuts.

C) The second cross member only has holes in the base of it. You will have to drill all the way through and we supply the long bolts, washers and nuts. (seek professional help if you are not confident to do this)

    Top product and even better service! Will be sure to be recommending Custom Offroad to others.

    I’m happy to say that I received my plates quickly and installed them.

    Great quality product at a fair price. They have already proven their worth on the first outing, handled some big hits like a champ. 

    I just have one query. The rear section of the last plate that extends under the transfer case has been bent up by obstacle contact. It now touches and rattles against the transfer case.

    My solution for now will be to make up some rubber bushings between the plate and case.

    I’m wondering if you make any addition plates or supports that extend rearward to hold this plate off the transfer case?

    Either way, minor issue, definitely worth the investment to protect you 4wd.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
