Rear Differential Skid

All the off-road adventures that we went on in our last Toyota FJ Cruiser beat up the rear differential housing. With a quality diff skid now available from Bud Built I decided that our new FJ Cruiser build needed differential protection.

I purchased the skid as bare metal and finished it with black Rustolium Hammered paint. I use a roller to apply the paint which is much faster than a rattle can and can be easily touched up.

The skid installs in about 20 minutes. I used the floor jack to push the skid in to place.

The skid needs to be removed to change the fluid in the read diff.

Time: 45 min
Cost: $298.00
