LS Engine swaps aren’t just popular in muscle cars and hot rods, they are also super popular in trucks. But not just lowered two-wheel drive trucks, as the off-road world also loves them. Whether you are talking about a two-wheel drive pre-runner truck, or a four-wheel drive dessert racer, and even rock crawlers and more, there are tons of LS engines out there. Because the oil pan on most LS engines is cast, protecting them from bashing can be important in certain applications as the cast pan can’t bend without breaking. In order to protect the most aggressive off-roaders, Holley has a new Off-Road engine swap oil pan that features a steel rock shield for protection and it’s cool.
And in addition to protecting the pan itself, the shield also offers protection to the oil filter which can be a rather unfortunate thing to smash with a rock. Check it out below and see what we’re talking about, to see which kit is right for your off-road LS swap.
