If you're going to really get out on the trails or off in the desert -- there's nothing that will change the rhythm of your day quite like losing your rear shocks. These shock skid plates are designed to give a smooth ramp up and over obstacles while also protecting your rear shocks. The rear shocks on the Ford Bronco are some of the lowest hanging fruit on the entire vehicle for trail and desert obstacles to catch on -- since they are mounted in front of the axle housing, and hang down lower then anything else on the axle. These not only protect the front of the shock, but fully cover the bottom and wrap up and around at the departure to allow protection if you find yourself backing up and over something that might otherwise find your shocks.
These skid plates are laser cut from 1/4" thick high strength HRPO steel, and CNC formed for a precision fit. Installation does not require removal of the rear shocks and uses existing holes and additional provided hardware to attach. These skid plates are sold as a pair of left and right skids that ship bare metal and will require painting or coating unless ordered otherwise.
These shock skids were designed to work with stock suspension. Will not work with Hoss 3.0 or 4.0 options.
This is a completely necessary add-on if you plan on taking your Bronco anywhere off-road. I spray-painted them with black rustoleum textured finish paint to avoid rust, and it worked out amazingly well. These skids have saved my rear strut reservoirs at least a half dozen times already. Solid parts, easy installation, absolutely worth the investment!
Very happy with my Bronco rear shock skids. From the packaging, design and quality, A+. Easy on, except for the little outside bolt and nut, LOL! Sprayed a coating of Fluid Film on my bare metal skids and wiped off the excess. But my fingers were still a little slippery trying to start that little nut. Couldn't be happier. Highly recommended.
Holy cow these things are stout. And they look amazing too. Nice work guys!!!
Hi quality product. Easy to install
These skids are well designed and built. They will definitely provide a lot of protection. Unfortunately, they are not compatible with the Fox shocks that come with HOSS 3.0 package. The skid at the bottom of the reservoir gets in the way. I have to do some cutting to get them to work.
Why next venture?
parts inspired by the trail
Our team got into the game after rock crawling, wrenching, fabricating and being inspired to design and build parts for what we love to do: hit the trail.
