Aluminum or Steel?
Not sure of whether to choose between the 1/4” aluminum or 3/16” steel construction? Allow us to outline what might be best for your 2nd Gen Tacoma.
1/4” Aluminum- Excellent all-around protection for daily driven vehicles, substantially stronger than factory skid plates, rust and corrosion resistant means they require no finish prior to installation, extremely lightweight yet strong. Choose to receive as bare material or with a black powder-coat finish.
Heavy Duty 3/16" Steel- Great for those who need true heavy-duty protection, perfect for use on rugged and rocky terrain. Comes topped off with a heavy-duty black powder-coat finish, these provide unmatched aesthetic appearance and corrosion protection.
Note: To install the RCI Fuel Tank Skid Plate on your Toyota Tacoma it is required to also purchase the RCI Offroad Fuel Tank Straps. This is only needed if you do not currently have the TRD Offroad package from Toyota. You can tell that you have the correct straps if your Tacoma has the plastic fuel tank skid plate.
*Truck Brigades Tip: To truly maximize the protection of your 2nd Gen Tacoma pair this with the RCI Offroad Engine Skid Plate & RCI Transmission Skid Plate.
