  • Designed to protect hitch & rear undercarriage from off-road damage
  • Constructed from sturdy ¼-inch steel plate with lightly textured powder coat finish
  • Built-in step offers easier access to truck bed or cargo area
  • Fits any standard 2" receiver hitch
  • Limited 5-Year Warranty

Over our years of off-roading, we've learned the hard way that hard rocks and trailer hitches don't play well together. One afternoon of impacts can grate your nerves and turn your 2" square receiver into scrap metal. That's why we engineered the Rugged Ridge Hitch Skid Plate from an incredibly strong ¼-inch steel plate so it brushes off severe impacts without skipping a beat. The skid plate assembly fits any standard 2" receiver and features a built-in step granting convenient access to truck beds, cargo areas, or roof-mounted racks. Finished with a lightly textured black powder coat, the Hitch Skid Plate looks at home on the pavement and in the backwoods, with a design that functions flawlessly in any terrain.
