    This transfer case plate is a life saver! The fitment is super snug ( or my truck is bent) and worked amazing. Installation took less then 10 mins and i just inspected it after hitting some heavy rock trails and this thing can take a beating. Twice i was stuck on this plate and was able to shimmy the truck off the rock i was stuck on and that cross member took all the weight and then some. RCI products can really take some abuse. Highly recommend getting the whole set, I skipped out on the gas tank and now that i have several creases in my tank i will be installing one as soon as it arrives.

    I have had this one on my 4Runner since April of 2020 as well as the Integration plate and Transmission skid. Top notch quality. I also had the fitment issue due to the overall length being a bit short, but It seems to be holding just fine.

    This skid is amazing, comes with extra cross member and completely covers TC.
    Cross member was a little short, I was afraid to break off a bolt while stretching the cross member to fit tight to the frame. luckily didn’t happen to me.
    There is an issue with the muffler pipe, on my car it sticks down pretty low. With no U shape provided spacers, it was laying on the skid, and would rattle from vibrations on the muffler.
    After placing provided U shape spacers, it was off the skid, but was still close enough to cause rattling. I did some research it looks like a common problem, people do different stuff to avoid it, extra spacers, replace dampers to shorter ones, or zip tie the damper to make it shorter.
    I had to zip tie muffler rubber damper to pull the pipe up just a little to stop the rattling noise.
    The skid should be redesigned to bend and go over the muffler pipe, should just drop by an inch from the mount point go over the pipe and come back.
