Q Luke • 12/28/2020, 2:26:07 AM Will this skid plate fully cover the secondary catalytic converters on a V8 4th gen 4runner?
A 12/30/2020, 4:56:07 PM It will cover most of them.
Q Joseph Lee • 01/09/2021, 7:17:56 PM Do I need the front skid plate for this one to fit? Or can I just put on a mid skid plate without the front.
A 01/15/2021, 6:07:12 PM You can run the mid skid by itself, yes.
Q Darrin Roush • 01/27/2021, 11:24:54 AM Can I combine this mid/trans skid plate with my OEM front skid plate? I have ordered this part and may be ordering the transfer case one as well, but the front one will have to wait until the budget allows. Thanks!
A 02/02/2021, 1:37:13 PM You would need to modify the OEM front skid quite a bit to get everything to work together.
Q Konstantin • 02/26/2021, 11:59:58 AM Can you please confirm whether these GX mid and transfer case skid plates are an out-of-the-box fit for the early (2003/4) V8 models (4Runner or GX) with only three cats and the very low-hanging exhaust crossover BEFORE the crossmember in front of the transfer case without raising or rerouting the exhaust? For example, CBI has this disclaimer: "If you have an 03-04 V8 the rear skid plate will not fit on your 4runner, due to the exhaust routing being in a different location than all later models. If you have a V8 in an 03-04 please contact us for possible solutions." You can see this crossover in the upper left section of this diagram: https://parts.lexus.com/a/Lexus_2004_GX-470-47L-AT/_50016_6719909/EXHAUST-PIPE/781450-1702.html Thank you!
A 03/08/2021, 1:18:58 PM Or skid gives you 1.5" of exhaust clearance under the crossmember. If your crossover pipe hangs lower than that you could shim the skids down further under the crossmember. Please contact or customer service team for any assistance [email protected]
