The AEV Intercooler Skid Plate for 2014+ HD Ram trucks protects the intercooler (and electronic sway bar disconnect on Power Wagon) from damage, without blocking-off critical airflow.
In 2014, HD Ram Trucks switched to an intercooler that was mounted lower for improved airflow and increased power. However, most of the aftermarket bumpers for these trucks remained the same and did not take into account the new airflow requirements. AEV was mindful of this when designing the HD Front Bumper, so it was absolutely critical that our Skid Plate met those same airflow requirements. For this reason, a vertical 6-bar design (using 1" DOM steel tube) was chosen to offer the best possible combination of airflow to the intercooler, protection, and accessibility for cleaning. This Skid Plate also provides increased protection for the vulnerable (and very expensive) OEM electronic sway bar disconnect system on Power Wagon models.
Note: Ram 3500 owners WITHOUT a compatibility beam, will need to purchase the supplemental 3500 Installation Kit in addition to the AEV Intercooler Skid Plate.
