Skid plates are a must if you plan to head off-road. They protect your vehicle from rocks, stones, and other obstacles and save you from potentially expensive repairs. Westin’s HDX DEF Tank Skid Plate has a durable 7-gauge steel main body that protects your vehicle’s DEF tank with stronger metal than an OEM shield.
Features of Westin HDX DEF Tank Skid Plate
- Replaces thin OEM DEF Tank shield and plastic cover
- Bolt-on installation and no drilling required – mounting hardware included
- Mounts directly to the frame and OEM L-brackets that hold the DEF tank
- Made from thick gauge steel to defend against punctures and other damage caused by road debris
Our HDX DEF Tank Skid Plate includes a lighter 12-gauge front cover to give your truck a finished look and easy access to your DEF tank. Replacing your OEM DEF tank skid plate with the rugged Westin option is the best way to protect your off-roader in the toughest conditions.
