Skid plate that covers the catalytic converter

I've searched the posts on here and I don't believe it exists but, I'm hoping to find a skid plate that covers access to the catalytic converter.

One of my Honda sedans got its Cat stolen the other night so, it's on my mind.

I've looked at the CatClamp and CatStrap and I may go that direction on the Hondas. But, for the 4Runner, I'm looking for hopefully a skid plate.

99 Limited, 3.4L, 4x4 without running boards or sliders.

Any ideas if any manufacturers have a bolt on solution?

Taking into account heat dissipation, any other ideas? I understand that it may be a custom fabrication.

Thanks

Sorry to hear about your cat getting stolen.

There have been a lot of discussions about this over the years. Seems like there’s no good off-the-shelf solution for our trucks.

Maybe, if you install a full coverage skid like CBI or RCI, then maybe adding additional plates that cover the rest of the cat. The plates could be welded to the frame? For heat dissipation, add a bunch of holes in it like the factory gas tank skid?

Had 5 cats stolen off my Toys 2 years ago. Not cool! No skid plate just for cats. You would have to custom fab that. Some people weld rebar onto their cats so they are harder to cut off with a sawzall.

I went the steel rod method, had my muffler guy install them all over the cats on a sequoia, 4runner, camry, kia and a prius, about $150 for all of them.

Sure they can be cut yet with a fair amount of noise (about 8 rods per cat) my bet is the average thief will move onto an easier target and thus I sleep better, ahh.

8 per Cat? Jeez - I was thinking about 1 length of rebar or 2 max.
