Ford Ranger Bash Plate and Recovery Point

Ford Ranger Bash Plate and Recovery Point

This Heavy Duty Bash Plate and Recovery Point from Superior Engineering has been custom designed to suit the current model Ford Ranger. They will also fit the Mazda BT-50 (Series 2).

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.

They protect the vital components without compromising performance and durability.

This NEW design allows for maximum protection to the front of the vehicle against potential damage to vital components like your engine, steering, radiator, sump, gearbox and front diff.

They are designed so they don’t cover up any of the crumple zones in the chassis, unlike most of the other guards out there which cover critical crumple zones.

Another advantage is the inclusion of the super heavy duty rated recovery point. Rated to a massive 5,000 kilograms, means this is something your can actually get your vehicle out of trouble with.

This Superior Engineering engine and gearbox guard is a small investment for many years of protection of your vehicles underbody.

Don’t get left stranded on the side of the track because you’re using inferior factory versions or cheap competitor copies just becuase you wanted to save a couple of bucks.

Upgrade to a Superior Engine Diff Guard kit and take home “Piece of Mind” that you’re buying the strongest guard in Australia.

Even the official Superior plaque is machined into the guard to ensure you are getting a true quality GENUINE component.

      The under body protection with recovery point for the ford PX/PXII Ranger weighs in at 35kg total.

  1. Hi is this guard suited for the PX2 and is it two plates in the kit to cover gearbox and sump with recover point?
    how far back dose it go too as seen some that go half way down the car?

    price for kit and delivery to Gold Coast QLD please.

    1. Hi. This is a 3 plate system to allow ease of access of the sump for engine servicing and oil drainage.

      We can send this to you on the Gold Coast – “free freight”.

        1. Good Afternoon Greg

          If you have any further questions or enquiries, please do not hesitate to email me back.

          1. Earlier you said Gold Coast was free freight, also you only quoted $500 for the same kit to warren on this page in October the same part?
            Why now am I getting quoted 700-800?

          2. Hi Greg

            Sales have must have missed your location. Freight is FREE to Queensland if you place an order over $300. So this will apply to you.

            The price has gone up since the quote to Warren. As this price was for the 2 piece design which only included parts 1,2 and 3.

            The NEW guard is now a 3 piece design. Which includes a whole extra plate. Part 4. This extra plate offers more coverage.

            Take a look at the image in the installation instructions (page 2). Hope this helps.

            Here is a link to the install instruction which will include the image.

          3. ok thanks, had no idea about a third plate as the web site says nothing about it or even shown in the web site photos, why so many spacers couldn’t they have bent it fit more precise when making it?

          4. I will update the website text and images ASAP to mention the new upgrade in the product design.

            Also, they use the spacers to keep manufacturing costs down.

            The R&D team could ad more folds to the design, but that would increase production costs, which in turn would be passed onto the end user (the customer). So they are trying to keep manufacturing costs down.

    1. Good Morning

      Thank you for your enquiry into our bash plate / recovery point.

      At this point in time, we don’t have this set up available for the FJ Cruiser.
      The Research and Development team may be working towards this item at the moment, however I would not expect to see a release of such a product this year.

      The easiest way to keep up to date with our product releases and up-coming products is through our Newsletter.
