Bronco Skid Plates The Ford Bronco 6G brings many refinements that modern vehicles boast, but also has it's own unique undercarriage short-comings. It lacks any skid serious plates! A selling feature of the Bronco is also a hint at a major flaw: the suspension capabilities and increase fender flare clearance require less lift to increase tire size. This means wheelers can install larger tires and tackle tougher trails without having to install a traditional suspension lift kit. Less lift means more dragging your undercarriage and drivetrain all over the rocks.
Belly-Pan Design To help you make it to the end of the trail, we're offering our most comprehensive and largest skid plate system we've ever designed. This is a true "belly pan" system that protects all your vital drivetrain components. The new Bronco 10-speed transmission drives fantastic, but is very long and pushes your drivetrain further back underneath your rig. To protect your transmission and transfer case, we had to increase the overall size of our skid plates. This is where our "belly pan" design gets to work. From frame rail to frame rail and oil pan to tail of gas tank, our design is comprehensive and complete.
