    I regret not buying the shield for the rears back in April when I ordered the front shield.

    Is it difficult to get to the rear cats without it? I heard they were only resonators anyway. Any truth to this?

    They are legitimate catalytic converters. They have a stamped code on them (what the recyclers use for valuing them)

    The good news is that adding a rear cat plate won’t mean you have to remove the front cat plate

    I received my beautiful red powder coated plates for my TRD Pro a week ago, but just now had time to put them on. WOW! How great does it feel to know there is a deterrent for these thieving arsewipes? When you see all four Cats on these Tundras, it's a wonder they aren't being hit more often - super accessible for a quick strike.

    Tyler, It would have taken me 1/3 the time if I had known the bar with welded nuts to it was for the TRD plate bolts. I spent about 30 minutes scheming how I was going to get a retaining wrench on the top bolt to counteract the pentagon head bolt tightening. Then I remembered the bar and thought, "hmmmm, I bet that's what that little bar was for!" What a genius item as it saved the day. After that it was easy peasy. Thanks brother!

    @Classy63,
    Have you had anyone mention any issues with increased temps from installing these? I want to get my parents a set before they travel around the country for a few months but their tundra has already experienced higher trans temp issues due to lack of a tranny cooler.

    You will be fine. I'm in Fl and I've had mine for a year or so with no issues.

    I can answer this for Tyler. I’ve literally driven cross country and pulled a trailer for thousands of miles multiple times with his cat plates on. Absolutely no issues with temps.

    Your problem will be the lack of tranny cooler, not because of the plates added on.

    I have both plates in 1/8” steel, and I’ve been driving in Central Texas’s 100+ heat for a while now, and no issues at all.

    That is being ordered also. It's all going to be a retirement gift for my father. I'm just going to have to find time to get down off the mountain to install it. 15hr days suck, but the extra $ is useful.

    @Classy63 Does your nut place work with the screwed security bolt or only for the pentagon bolts you provide with the plates?

    If it is 3/8x4 and I can’t remember the pitch of the nut off the top of my head (but it is the standard pitch), then yes

    My plates showed up today. The front plate had some minor surface rust, but that was expected, and cleaned off easy enough with a wire cup on a grinder. The rear plate was surprisingly rust free except 2 minor spots. I primed them and got 2 coats of herculiner on one side today. I'll finish rolling them tomorrow and get them mounted.

    Thank you Tyler for the awesome product. Can't wait to get them mounted.

    I am looking forward to this as well. I have held off on installing my rear plate. I remember Tyler mentioning having to drill 4 holes to mount the V3 plate.
