Transfer Case Guard Ford Ranger & Mazda BT-50

This Heavy Duty Transfer Case Guard from Superior Engineering has been designed to suit the current model Ford Ranger and Mazda BT-50 (Series 2) four wheel drive vehicles.

Design Objectives

The main problem with driving offroad without any underbody protection fitted to your 4×4, is that your vehicle is prone to damage in the event of any type of impact, putting your safety and your vital driveline components at risk.

The transfer case is one of the most overlooked items but is also one of the most exposed and vulnerable.

All it takes is a split second lapse while driving and your vehicle may be incapacitated from a bent, broken or leaking transfer case.

This is an all too common cause of underbody component damage while driving offroad, due to the fact that your entire driveline is exposed and your vehicle is open to untold damage from various obstacles such as rocks, logs, ruts and stumps.

The solution is to fit the newly designed Superior Engineering Transfer Case Guard which covers the entire transfer case giving you maximum protection without compromising performance of your vehicle.

These guards are considered to be one of the most basic and essential items for any 4WD that sees dirt and rock action.

Features a solid 1-piece design for easy maintenance, incorporates a smooth low profile for maximum ground clearance and the ability to slide across objects without getting stuck on sharp rocks and ledges.

This underguard is CAD Engineered and fabricated with press formed sections to provide additional strength and to help dissipate forces and transfer energy from impacts safely back into the chassis and crossmember.

Another advantage is that it simply bolts directly to the chassis and crossmember utilising the original mounting points for superior strength.

This Superior Engineering underguard is 100% Street Legal and Compliant, and DOES NOT require separate approvals to be used on Public roads within Australia.

Features & Benefits

  • High Level of Protection – this transfer case guard fully covers the lower section of the transfer giving the best protection

The problem with standard factory engine guards is that it’s made of plastic which are prone to damage in the event of the slightest impact, leaving your vehicles vital parts at risk.

This design flaw is the major cause of underbody component damage while offroad driving, due to the fact that it exposes your vehicle to damage from various obstacles such as rocks, logs, debris and bumps.

The difference with this new design guard over the factory Ford Ranger and Mazda BT-50 guard is that this protection plate perfectly integrates into the vehicles design.
