The Limited trim of the Gen3 Montero received an additional heating and air conditioning unit located behind the rear right wheel. While this HVAC unit keeps your passengers comfortable, it sits in a precarious place when offroading and the factory guard is small and made of very thin sheetmetal. If it is smacked too hard and begins to leak coolant then your engine can overheat because the lines are all connected. Because of this concern, some offroaders delete the rear HVAC system altogether but this heavy duty skid plate gives you the best of both worlds.
No drilling, cutting, or permanent modifications to the vehicle are required for and all of the brackets and hardware needed for installation are included.
This skid will fit even if you have an aftermarket tow hitch.
These famous Pajero bash plates from Down Under have finally made it to the USA!
Boo's Bash Plates are 100% Aussie made using state-of-the-art laser cutters and computerized brake presses for a perfect fit. All plates feature silver zinc plating that not only looks great but offers superior rust and corrosion protection.
When it comes to building a 4x4/overland rig, our recommendation is to always start with getting the vehicle caught up on maintenance so that it won't leave you stranded. But next, we believe armor should be a top priority. Before aftermarket wheels, before roof top tents, slide out kitchens, and light bars galore - protecting your vehicle's critical (and expensive) driveline and suspension components is always money well spent if you're going to play past where the pavement ends.
*NOTE - While every effort is made to protect the skid plates during production and shipping, minor scuffs and scratches are a normal occurrence.
