    Below is the install as completed on my 2012 5.7L Rock Warrior Crew Max. Should be the exact same process for all 2007+ Tundras.

    The ABS Sensor Guards are sold by SDHQ. http://store.sdhqoffroad.com/2007tundraabsvacguards.aspx

    Link to SDHQ Install Instructions

    The reason I am installing is because the ABS sensors are unprotected, easy to break and expensive. @Sean266 paid ~$200 to replace one already. The guards are bolt on and will protect the sensors from rocks.

    The kit includes:
    • (4) ABS Guards (2 driver and 2 passenger)
    • (4) M6 - 1.0 x 45 bolts
    • (4) M6 Flat Washers

    Tools needed to complete the job:
    • 10mm socket / wrench
    • 5mm allen wrench
    Here are the guards in the package:

    Here is everything needed for this install:

    Start by turning the wheel out so you have room to work.

    For the front guards, remove the factory 5mm allen bolt holding the sensor. Install the guard on the appropriate side using the provided hardware and adjust so the bottom plate is parallel to the ground and tighten. Use some PB Blaster if they don't come off easy right away.











    For the rear guards, remove the 10mm nut and stud. One of two things will occur here. Either the nut will come off and leave the stud in place or the nut and stud will come out together. The latter occurred for me. If the nut only comes off then pull the sensor out and remove the factory stud using pliers. Install the guard on the appropriate side using the provided hardware and adjust so the bottom plate is parallel to the ground and tighten. Use some PB Blaster if they don't come off easy right away.
















    When completed you will have 2 bolts, 2 studs and 2 nuts remaining that can be recycled or saved for future opportunities.

    Have not broke one myself but now I don't have to worry. @Sean266 broke one on his 2014 so now he added these guards as well.
