Overview: ICON Vehicle Dynamics' bolt-on skid plate system for 2005 - Current Toyota Tacoma offers the ultimate in lower control arm protection for both on and offroad use. Reduce the risk of lower arm failure during everyday driving, running offroad trails, getting to your favorite hunting or fishing spot, or crawling in mountainous terrain. This skid plate system will allow you to slide over rocks and debris all while helping to protect your lower arms from trip-ending damage. Made from 3/16" laser cut steel, our Tacoma lower arm skid plates offer extreme durability and a precision fit for easy installation. The 05+ Toyota Tacoma ICON bolt on skid plate system also serves as a locator for the lower shock mount for our S2 Modular Performance Shock System. This modular approach allows you to install these skid plates without waste if you decide to upgrade and add the full S2 system down the road. You are able to purchase knowing it is 1 of the 3 components you will need to run the S2 Secondary Shock System, giving you the opportunity to build in stages if you choose. Key Features: • Bolt-on design • Made from 3/16" laser cut steel • Durable black powdercoat finish • Serves as the lower shock mount for our S2 Modular Secondary Shock System • Adds protection from rocks and trail debris during on or offroad use Tech Info: • Must enlarge 4 pre-existing holes for proper installation System Components Included: • Lower arm skid plates (pair) • Hardware • Installation Instructions Options: Add upper shock mounts and secondary shocks to complete S2 Modular Performance Secondary Shock System

Lightweight Hard Anodized 6063 Aluminum Alloy Reservoirs
Lightweight hard anodized 6063 aluminum alloy reservoirs dissipate heat quickly and will not rust due to gas charging contamination.
Internally threaded Top Cap
Internally threaded top cap design threads over the shock body to enable maximum piston travel inside the shock body.
High quality fittings are mated to Aeroquip high pressure hoses which resist abrasion and kinking.
2.5" Shock cylinders are precision bored to within +/-.001, then honed after cadmium plating to remove buildup for a tight piston seal and optimum valving function.
Truncated Thread Design
Coilover shocks are machined with own truncated thread design for ultimate strength and trouble free spring preload and height adjustments.
The heat treated 6061 aluminum alloy piston has our highly developed port configurations that contribute to the unique damping performance and famous King ride quality.
Coil Adjuster Nut
Pinch bolt coil adjuster nut offers superior clamping force to retain your coil preload adjustments without crushing the threads like set screw style collars do.
Large 3/4" or 7/8" diameter shafts have a minimum tensile strength of 100,000 pounds per square inch. They are hard chromed and micro-polished to a 6 RA finish for extended seal life.
Wear bands are made from Rulon composite that offers incredible wear resistance, low deformation under load and high compressive strength. Overlapping end design enhances sealing.
High strength rod end designed for proper clearance on your application. Steel Teflon lined spherical bearings for smooth articulation and long lfie with no metal to metal contact.
Aluminum components and vehicle specific moutns are machined from aircraft quality billet. Front and rear kits all include all necessary vehicle specific mounting crackets and hardware along with detailed installation instructions.
Internal reservoir allows easy bolt-on installtion and guards against shock fade during sever use.
