AEV’s Transmission Skid Plate is the “missing link” for the factory installed Bison skid plate package. This skid plate’s unique 1″ DOM tubular construction was a direct result of the Colorado’s unique cooling requirements for the transmission pan as well as a way to minimize the risk of debris becoming packed around the transmission pan, creating a potential fire hazard. AEV’s Transmission Skid Plate is designed specifically for the 2019+ ZR2 Bison. All other 2015+ ZR2/Z71 models must use the Bison Transfer Case Skid Plate in conjunction with this part. Features an OEM two-stage, corrosion resistant coating and is proudly made in the USA.
