Our bash plates are loved by many. Here are the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about bash plates

What are bash plates?

Bash plates are strong metal plates designed to protect the undercarriage of 4WD vehicles. Tosca's bash plates are made of 3mm etch primed steel and were originally designed for a 2006 Nissan Pathfinder R51. There are five plates in the full set: intercooler, sump, transmission, transfer case and fuel tank.

I want 5mm plates. Can you help me?

Yes. But these will only be made when you have placed an order and they will be more expensive. Please call us for a quote.

Who fits the plates to my vehicle?

Most people fit the plates themselves. The plates are easy to fit with all the front plates designed to bolt straight into existing holes. We include the longer bolts required for this. The fuel tank plate requires three extra holes to be drilled and tapped in the chassis. This is relatively simple but some people prefer their mechanic to do this for them (they have the necessary hoists).

We are happy to fit the plates for you, however we are a busy workshop, and you will need to arrange a day to leave your vehicle with us. The charge for this service is $270 for all five plates and $80 for the front two plates only.

My vehicle has a nudge or bull bar. Will the plates fit?

Yes, they fit with a bull bar.

Yes, they fit with a nudge bar but... you will need some additional spacers and longer bolts. Please talk to us before you place your order.

Can I come and pick up plates now?

We generally have a few sets of plates in stock, but sometimes we do run out so please call us first! If you'd like the plates painted you'll need to allow a few extra days. If you are using your 4WD the way it was intended then paint is not going to stay pretty for long. Most people don't bother with this.

Can you send plates anywhere in Australia?

Yes. Tosca plates are currently being used in most states. Call us for a freight quote.

I heard that the plates will fit my Navara. True?

The sump and intercooler plates also fit the Spanish built Nissan Navara D40 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 models. The later models are built in Thailand and we have not yet fitted plates to these models.

Will the plates fit my Pathfinder R50?

Unfortunately not. The undercarriage is vastly different to the R51.

What plates can I see in the picture?

You're looking from the front of the vehicle, so you can see the front intercooler and sump plates.

Weight does matter!

Before you purchase any vehicle it is really important to take the time to sit down and list ALL the items you intend to carry or fit to the vehicle.  Not paying enough attention to weight limits is one of the most common problems that Tosca encounters.  That one tonne ute might be cheap but is it adequate for your needs?  How much have you budgeted for future mechanical repairs?
