Whether sliding over rocks or hitting a surprisingly deep pothole, many of your vehicles most expensive components are completely exposed below and underbody damage is costly. Protect your investment with RCI skids, the ultimate defense for all on and off-road hazards.

Many Tundra drivers have been looking for skid plates for daily driving, overlanding, and offroad. Whether you use your vehicle for work or play, we have an option that will work for your application. RCI’s Tundra skid plates are available in two popular options: 

10ga Steel– Great all-purpose protection, and the best value for the money. These make a great upgrade whether you already have the stock skid plates, or have nothing at all. Our 10 gauge skid plates are far tougher than OEM and provide significantly more coverage.

1/4Aluminum– Excellent all around protection for daily drivers, and much stronger than factory skid plates. Rust and corrosion resistant aluminum means they require no paint finish prior to installation. The aluminum material is substantially lighter than steel and thanks to its extra thickness it is just as strong.


  • Protects power steering unit, front differential, front cross-member, engine, engine bay, and radiator
  • Compatible with all 4×4 trucks from 07-Present
  • 7 Mounting points for extra durability
  • Mounts to radiator cross-member without interfering with aftermarket bumpers, hidden winch, etc.
  • Two piece design for simple installation and removal with basic hand tools
  • Easy access to oil filter by removal of access door using only two bolts
  • Smooth, flat surface that easily slides over obstacles. No exposed bolt heads on skid plates
  • Direct bolt on addition to existing factory attachment points, no drilling
  • Steel version-black powder coated for rust resistant, durable and high quality finish
  • Installs in minutes
  • All hardware and installation instructions provided

    Fit like a glove, great protection with perfect aces to the filter and drain plug.

  2. Warren Pelz

    Excellent skids for the Tundra, they provide great protection. Considering replacing the engine skid as I’ve BEAT mine, glad they were there.

    Picked up the 10 gauge steel version of this for my 2011 Tundra. The plate showed up packaged very well and the box was undamaged.

    Upon opening, the plate itself is very burly. I got my truck used and it didn’t come with the skid plate. While I was shopping around for a replacement I looked at both this and the stock Toyota TRD skid plate. This one looked far more substantial and the price was very competitive.
    Installation was pretty easy but it helped to have a jack and piece of wood to hold one end in place while I bolted the other end up.

    Looks awesome, would buy again (though I don’t know if i’d ever be able to kill this thing).

    Came with a sweet decal too.

    Just received the bare metal aluminum skid for my 2016 Tundra. Order and shipment were fast. Product is very well made and fits perfectly. Provides great coverage and no more removing the skid to change the oil.

    Perfect fit on my 2012 Tundra Crew Cab. Installation was straight-forward, taking maybe 30 minutes (including doing an oil + filter change). Great finish, and a serious upgrade to the OEM skid plate. The old one looks like tin foil by comparison. The access hatch for the oil filter lines up beautifully. Looking forward to no longer being annoyed by having to drop the skid plate every oil change.

    2019 Sequoia TRD Sport

    We have had 2 Sequoias and 1 Tundra since 2008 model years. I change the oil every 3,000 miles in each vehicle. I was so tired of dropping skid plates that I did some research and found RCI offered skid plates with a trap door for oil changes.

    We have a new Sequoia TRD Sport and I ordered this skid plate after quick conversations with the crew at RCI. They assured me it would fit our Sequoia. Ordering process, communication, shipping time and fit were all superb.

    Definitely recommend having a buddy help you and install on a lift. Wont be easy on the ground, but could be done.

    This skid is so much thicker and heavier than the stock skid it is not even comparable!

    Awesome overall product and service. 5 stars!

    Would it be too forward of me to say I love you guys (and gals)? Just finished my 5th oil change with your plate on my ’12 Tundra (I did 1 with the stock plate, that was enough). The access panel for the filter cartridge may be the greatest thing since the ignition key. I actually look forward to the oil change, now.
