Installation Process of Rhino 4×4 Underbody Protection

1. Gather the Necessary Tools and Materials

Before you begin, gather all the tools and materials required for the installation. These may include a socket set, wrenches, a drill, drill bits, and the installation kit provided with the underbody protection.

2. Prepare the Vehicle

Park your vehicle on a level surface and engage the parking brake. Ensure you have ample workspace to move around the vehicle safely.

3. Remove Existing Components (if applicable)

If your vehicle has factory skid plates or other existing components, you may need to remove them before installing the Rhino 4×4 underbody protection. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions or consult a professional if needed.

Carefully position the Rhino 4×4 underbody protection beneath your vehicle, ensuring it aligns with the mounting points and contours of the undercarriage. Take note of any specific instructions provided by the manufacturer.

Using the provided hardware and following the manufacturer’s instructions, secure the underbody protection to the vehicle’s frame or designated mounting points. Use the appropriate tools to tighten the bolts or screws, ensuring a secure fit.

6. Test and Adjust

Once the underbody protection is securely installed, test it by gently applying pressure to verify its stability. If necessary, make any adjustments to the alignment or tightness of the mounting points.

7. Final Checks

Before concluding the installation, check for any exposed screws, sharp edges, or loose components. Ensure that all connections are secure and that the underbody protection does not interfere with other vehicle systems or moving parts.

We will recommend a levelling spacer on some bumpers, but on the Wildog K9 front bumpers it is not essential.

Powder Coating is more cost effective, but it is a matter of personal taste. Color matching is done by a professional service provider, using the vehicle manufacturers VIN number in order to match the color.

Wildog “sidesteps” are heavy duty rock sliders which mount directly to the chassis.

Most of the Wildog products are full, bolt-on, replacements.
The new Ford T6 Face-lift / T7 / Wildtrak / Everest is a grill cut. The Toyota Hilux Legend/Raider range is a grill cut.

The Amarok front bumper is a stiffener cut (The winch plate replace the stiffener on the chassis)
The Fortuner rear is a bumper cut.

Yes there is a small gap between the bumper and the body, we use a door type automotive rubber to fill the gap. Wildog Accessories has a smaller and much more consistent gap, following the curve of the vehicle, than most of our competitors– this is to ensure independent “flex” between the body and the chassis. Because you are replacing the OEM plastic parts with much stiffer steel parts, you’ll need to allow for this “flex” movement during articulation.

Yes all Wildog front replacement bumpers come standard with jacking & recovery points.

Most rear bumpers are spare wheel compatible but rather ask our sales team on your specific model. Spare wheel carriers cannot be added later on the standard rear bumper. This need to be ordered before we start manufacturing.

No, only the Land Cruiser Pick up 79 is compatible with two carriers.
