Protect your rear axle!
'91-'97 FJ80 Toyota 9.5'' rear diff armor skid plate. Includes diff armor, skid plate, and formed tie in bracket. This weld on armor is press formed 10 times from 1/4 steel.
It’s nice, and it’s kinda close but needs more r&d...
If you plan on running the factory parking brake and brake bias thing in the original locations that’s not happening. No biggie, but extra work to factor in for relocation.
The armor itself will take a lot of manipulating. It wasn’t bent square or consistently. It’s off left to right, the tabs don’t land on the housing. And the reliefs for the factory “truss” material are not anywhere close. It was a good attempt and at half the price I’d give it more stars. I expected to have to work it some, but I expected a better fit for the price I paid.
It’s pretty beefy, and has pretty good coverage..... but that’s it.
The bends aren’t consistent from one side to the other, so it isnt flush fitting. It should also be at least 3/8” thick instead of 1/4”. It’ll take some work with a torch, and BFH to get it to work. You should also add material to the bottom skid otherwise you’ll still shave off the ring around your drain plug against rocks.
