Receiver Hitch Skid Plate
Our receiver hitch skid plate will protect everything above your reciver. Things like your spare tire, bumper, back up sensors, exhaust, and more.
Notice also from the photos the skid plate can also protect underneath the hitch if you have any wiring, plastics, or other vulnerable spots on your vehicle in this area.
These rear skid plates also make a nice step for access to the rear of your rack for loading, strapping and tie-down, and so on.

We've seen some other kits on the market, low-cost items... and you get what you pay for. Those hitch skid plate kits are smaller, don't have folded lips on the lower end, thin gauge metal, poor to non-existent gusseting. With our skid plates, you're not buying the cheapest kit on the market, yuo are investing in the best and most heavy duty though.
Manufactured from 1/4" steel, the hitch skid plate is designed to fit in 2" receiver hitches.
Overall width of the skid plate is 12".
Rear Hitch skid plates are formed on a 200 ton press brake and come with optional powdercoat.
Not Just a Hitch Skid Plate
The hitch receiver skid plate is more than just a skid plate. It's a multi tool that has the following functions.
Verify Hitch Skid Plate Fitment
Our Hitch skid plate fits most receiver hitches because it hangs 1" below your receiver. However, we occasionally have vehicles where the safety chain rings are too low and will not allow fitment of the hitch skid plate. Click on the picture to the left that shows fitment.
