Adventure Driven Design Gen 3 Montero Skid Plate


Expedition Leader
I was doing a routine oil change today, and figured that while I had the Monty up on the lift, I'd go ahead and snap some pics of my new Adventure Driven Design Gen 3 Montero Skid Plate.

Since this was test fit, I've not yet painted it, and the bare steel helps it stand out a bit more in the pictures.

You can see that this is a serious chunk of metal, especially compared to the stock "skid plate."

This is a "one banana" install, so, if you're smart enough to get your vehicle up on a lift safely, you're smart enough to do the install.

Remove the two rear bolts. Loosen the two front ones. Pull the old plastic POS off, slide the new high-speed, low-drag skid plate on. Tighten front bolts a tad so it doesn't slide off on you. Install the rear bolts. Tighten the front bolts all the way down, and bob's yer uncle.



This thing fits like a glove.

I may switch out the bolts later on for some lower profile heads, but for now, these will do me just fine.

If you're in the market for a skid plate to protect your delicate bits up front, I'd order one of these soon.


Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining.
Those look great!
The "z" bend up front helps with bashes.



That is a solid looking piece for sure. I finally got around to estimating shipping on one of these...FREE!. I have to say, that was enough to tip me into going this route. I get to support a forum member and American manufacturing, rather than Australian's and international shippers.

As much as I would like to fab up some skids on the entire underside, building a garage/ADU makes that unrealistic time wise. Really looking forward to pulling the trigger on this next week. I have been running Moab naked, without even the plastic skid, and it's a bit nerve racking. Thanks Toasty!


Looking for that thing i just had in my hand...
Awesome! Glad you like it, the Gen 2 version should be out this week. I'll work on the next Gen 3 skid after all of them are installed and everyone is happy.


I'm Getting Around To It
That profile pic showing the thickness: Bad@ss. These guys are doing good work. Support them and spread the word.
