    @Hightide Did you ever install the Valhalla front and rear plates with the C4 sliders? If so, can you post pictures of the rear plate z-bracket mounting on the C4 sliders? Crewmax or Double Cab?

    Thanks brother. I ordered it 2 days after I got the truck. Wish more guys would jump on this. You were the first and probably most important mod I will ever do on my truck.

    I can make it, I just mixed info from first gen people about whether or not they want them. It seems more that they want legitimate skid plates more than theft deterrent plates

    Curious about ordering today (1/8" steel bare) lead times for front and rear cat protection. Have a trip to Dallas over Labor Day and I'm parking outside :(

    Edit: I've placed the order. If it can get to me before the trip, great. If not, that's fine.

    I think I talked to you already, but 100% doable. The plates are going to start getting cut tomorrow, we have been going back and forth making sure everything is right. I should be able to pick up maybe some Thursday, but all Friday

    I just installed my front and rear plates last night. I did not install the center cross member spacer. When idling and the air conditioner is on I get a vibration. Is this due to not having the spacer in? I don't have any rattling just the vibration. Running both plates 3/16 Aluminum.

    Are you talking about the 4 square plates? Are you 4 wheel drive? If you are, you have to remove the small skid plate from the bottom of the transfer case, and then those spacers go between the plate and the crossmember. If you are 2wd, those spacers are not needed.

    So I only received two plates and I’m 4 wheel drive. So I need 4 total to go on the front of the smaller plate correct?

    Is yours aluminum? If so you likely got a 1/4” spacer instead of the 2 1/8 steel ones

    Hi Tyler, I was looking at the or fab antitheft cat shield and found myself here. I was interested in getting the front cat shield in 1/8 steel black powder coat. I also saw on your site you were offering the front skid plates? I would be interested in that as well.I am local to Houston and could pick up, thanks.

    Or-Fab has been out of business for a while. Tyler @Classy63 is the go-to for these plates. You will be on a wait list obviously, but I and many others will tell you that his products are a :101010:. His communication and customer service is just as high. He is one of those guys that you will want to shake his hand in appreciation for the effort that he has put into his products. I refer people to his site any time that I can. :hattip:

    As I clear out the last of the plates I have in my garage, h get to decide what to do with some bad cuts and damaged pieces. So, I am putting up a 1/4” aluminum rear cat plate up for grabs for a blemish special! All that is wrong with the plate itself is that one of the holes didn’t cut the whole way. I also have another 1/4” rear cat plate that was a very ugly cut. I only have 3 Z brackets. One is decent, one was not cut right and another is just an ugly cut.

    the one that has a hole not cut is $250 local, $300 shipped

    the one that is ugly and I can only send one Z bracket, $150 local, $20 shipped

    I'm patiently waiting for you to finish designing the plates for the BDS. I'm assuming its the front plate that requires a special structure to attach to the dropped rear crossmember. If this rear plate is universal, I'll take the ugly one. Also assuming it's $200 shipped, not $20. If you can confirm, I'll pay, save it, and ship it with the BDS front cat plate, if/when you finish engineering it.

    I am pretty sure I got it figured out

    side note, some of the last of the plates I have are coming through powder coat, you can see 3rdtundra’s plates here!

    Update on plasma cut, they got shut down for COVID… he is hoping to get my plates done by Monday.
