    Change your order to what? I have an RCI engine skid and the cat plates install just fine.

    Spent some time yesterday test fitting the prototype for the Tacoma/4 runner, I made a lot more changes than I expected… I am going to make another prototype with all the changes and this one should be the ticket

    So i've seen two options on this but haven't read every single post yet. Should I remove the diff cover or request spacers to lower the cat plate?

    If I have to do it again, I'll replace the rear trd plate bolt with a longer one. The first time I tried it, I removed the rear bolts completely. Went in really easy with just me and floor jack. Now, threading the nut on the bolt, that was the breaking point for me. If the bolt was 1/2 inch or 1 inch longer, yes, very doable.
    I have the thick steel plates. Maybe I should have taken the front wheels off to be able to position myself better. I just put the front tires on the big 4x4 wood and worked on it.

    I bought a set of these last year, and they have been a huge help in doing a lot of tasks under my truck. (Like removing the OEM skid plate before oil changes and replacing it afterwards, for example.(and I do not leave my truck on the ramps when actually changing the oil)). They were helpful when trying unfreeze the BM turnaround ball mechanism that the previous owner didn’t maintain very well.

    I am going to be using them when I install my Valhalla plates.

    (my ramps included the chocks as well).

    I think I remember this! I think this was the first truck I installed the nut plate on.

    Hello. I am not a very active here but i am looking for catalytic shield deterrent. I have a 2019 tundra 1794 edition 2wd; no lift/all stock. There’s also a trd skid plate installed. I am looking on the aluminum red bit i am not sure with one cause i think there’s a front and rear part. Please excuse for the ignorance.

    Is the Aluminum front cat theft deterrent/transmission plate enough to cover my catalytic converter. I intend to use my trd skid plate.

    Highly appreciate if you could assist. Thanks. Peter

    You will need both front and back plate. The optional is the front skid plate, but since you already have the TRD plate, you can make your own call if you want a set or just the two is fine.

    The 1st picture (top) is optional and the 2nd picture (bottom) is a must since i will be using my trd skid plate.

    I think the 2nd picture is missing. But from that picture above, you need both front and back plate.

    That's OK.
    I am just going to post the link of the two plates you MUST have.
    https://valhallasshields.com/shop/ols/products/aluminum-front-cat-theft-deterrenttransmission-plate
    https://valhallasshields.com/shop/o...-convertertransfer-case-theft-deterrent-plate
    Make sure when you order, same thickness and color (if so desired.)

    https://valhallasshields.com/shop/ols/products/aluminum-front-skid-plate-engine-skid-plate
    This one is totally optional, as some are very OCD (like me) and want a whole set, but if you have the TRD front skid and am happy with it, I would say keep it until whenever you feel like changing it out.
    https://valhallasshields.com/shop/ols/products/pentagon-security-bolts-for-rear-cat-plate-4
    This is also optional, some are concerned and will opt for this, but it is not a total required. Tyler will provide you the require hardware without this order.

    Hope this helps.

    Sorry, I need to be more active, but I am getting hammered with emails and messages, it is hard to keep up…. I am still 62 emails deep and 7 messages in the inbox here. I have been trying to fight it today, but I can’t get ahead… I am making an effort to power through them, but it is overwhelming.

    I swore I wouldn't ask for an update because I know you are doing all that is humanly possible but my neighbor was hit last night. When you get a moment, could you give me an update on order #R181419216? @Classy63

    Thank you!

    Tyler, you are but a one-man operation, and if anyone here has half a mind of a business would know that it is nearly impossible to keep up most of the time.
    And, that's why most of us who already got your product are more than happy to help out with minor questions. Sure, there is bound to be a few that requires your attention, but rest assure friend, you got an army out here.

    Not wanting or needing to distract Tyler from taking care of business I'm looking for a little instruction on installing the front & rear cat shields on my 2015 2WD CM with the TRD Offroad engine skid plate. I ordered the pentagon security bolts from Tyler and the Rock Domes from Rock Hard 4X4. If any of you have done this install would love to learn from you. Naturally, photos are always helpful. Maybe someone posted this before andi missed it.

    This may even help others, I'm thinking @1lowlife once he gets his truck back.

    Thank you!

    You may want to take a read at the below:

    https://www.tundras.com/threads/3rdtundras-2017-double-cab-build.92631/#post-2338309
    https://www.tundras.com/threads/val...-and-ordering-post.84911/page-30#post-2249889
    Or post 874.
    I swear there is a third one, but I can't find it right now, not between wiggling between my vessels and all that.
