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 are very nicely made, Heavy Duty pieces. .25" thick laser cut and press formed, with very nice welds. I don't think that there is any other shock skid on the market right now for the Bronco, that can hold a candle to these.
Easy install without removing shock bolts. Just remove the tire for easy access. You have to just maneuver them on. Took me a bit to figure out but finally got it.
High quality rear shock skids and easy to install. Highly recommended.
A couple of coats of hammered and their up and running. I haven't had a chance to bounce them off anything but they are very well constructed. Tight tolerances negate the need to secure with the shock bolts. Quick install, overall impressive
High quality, very easy install & and all the protection needed for off roading!

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.
