DV8 Offroad’s Bronco Rear Diff Skid Plate not only protects your differential, but also guards your pinion & rear axle from damage on rocky trails. The center plate shields the differential, gasket seal, & pinion from damage by rocks & other obstacles underneath the Bronco. Branching out from the diff skid is additional steel plating that protects the full length of the rear axle from link mount to link mount. This skid system will helps to prevent you from getting caught up on rocks. There are multiple drain holes in several locations to release any water or mud that might collect in the skid plate while off-road.

This is constructed from 4.0mm & 5.0mm steel plating, then finished in a micro-texture black powder coat for both style and weather resistance. Utilizing the provided hardware, installation is a straightforward process and can be completed with 1-2 people. This fits all 2-door & 4-door 6th Gen Broncos.

Please Note: This was engineered to work with the original factory diff covers. This may not fit with aftermarket diff covers.

For full, rear undercarriage protection add our Bronco Rear Shock Guards to your order to complete the build.

Rear diff skid

I love this rear diff skid. I like the coverage and the snug fit.

Looks great - supplied hardware worked fine

Based on the first reviewer's feedback, I had replacement bolts and nuts on hand. But the supplied hardware worked fine for me despite the rear stabilizer bar proximity. That said, we had it on a lift, so maybe that was a big difference. The item seems high quality and looks great.

Looks great!

I just finished installing both the shock & differential bash plates on my 2022 Outer Banks SAS Bronco. Firstly, they look GREAT! But, I have a few installation comments for DV8 and others to consider. No, it's not that hard to get them on but it took longer than their instructions lead you to believe unless you have the following info. So, here are my observations.
Differential plate:
If you have a factory sway bar as mine does, don't even try to install it before going to the store. I spent easily 1.5 hours trying to use the provided bolts and getting very frustrated. The DV8 bolts would work fine if you don't have a sway bar. So, do yourself a favor and go to the hardware store and get 4x M8x35mm class 10.9 flange head bolts, 4x 5/16 external star lock washers, and 4x 5/16" flat washers. The long and short of it, the provided bolts are too short with the addition of the sway bar bracket, the washers are too small and fall through the slots of the sway bar bracket and I went with the star lock washer as I was using a fanged bolt and it's thinner than the split washer. Also, you have to remove the factory studs, which snap out, that mount the sway bar as they will not work with the bash plate.
The other problem I had was the provided bolt plate falling out with the slightest push of a bolt. When that happens, you have to remove the bash plate to get your hand in and put it back. Very frustrating when you have one side in! Use a small dab of silicone seal in the middle of the plate, cleaning the surfaces 1st, to lightly hold the plate in place. You don't need to wait for it to dry as you want it to allow slight movement to align the nuts correctly.
One last thing, a C-clamp is your friend when you only have one person as it really takes 2 to install this plate. Using the clamp, lightly tightened, to hold one end when getting the other end attached worked fine. Also, watch out for the brake line that was slightly in the way on the driver's side on the rear of the differential. You don't want it under the bash plate!
Using the above hardware and silicone, I was easily able to install the bash plate in under 1.5 hours.
