The Raptor is designed to be an off-road capable truck, and it accomplishes that very well. While it’s meant to bash in the dirt, there are still some improvements that can be made on the truck. Off-road or on, there are hazards and obstacles aplenty. Your Raptor comes from the factory with some protection in the form of a front skid plate, but the engine and transmission are left entirely exposed. Whether you are pounding the pavement or slinging dirt, you never know what could happen. Protect your Raptor’s transmission from damage with the Borne Off-Road Transmission Skid Plate.
Designed to be tough as nails, the Borne Off-Road Transmission Skid Plate is constructed from 5/32-inch plate steel and is ready to take whatever abuse you can to throw at it. Additional mounting points have been added to provide superior strength and those mounting points are all recessed to provide a smooth bottom surface. This eliminates the potential to shear off or get hardware caught on obstacles. All corners and edges are bent at 80-degrees and reinforced to provide even greater strength. Reaching all the way across to both frame rails, it also protects the catalytic converters from theft. To ensure a long-lasting and durable finish, they are first electroplated via electro-galvanization and then powdercoated black. Designed to be direct-fit and including all hardware, install should take less than an hour with basic hand tools.
