The Toyota factory Rear Lower Control Arm Mounts for the 4Runners are made of sheet steel and are susceptible to deformation on impact when rock crawling. Since the factory mounts are welded to the frame the normal remedy for damaged mounts is to cut off the old ones and weld on new ones from a donor 4Runner frame. It’s not exactly expensive if you have a welder but it’s a real pain to do so.
We designed these skids to bolt on without having to remove the lower control arm or weld. There’s only one bolt so installation is about as easy as it gets. We installed a couple of sets on our last Moab trip and they go on in about 15 minutes. Our skids have been engineered with galaxy compression cuts to allow the skid to snug up against the stock mounts and prevent rattling (Patent pending). One set contains both a left and a right skid and the mounting hardware.
