2010-18 RT Halo Skid

Let’s begin the install with a clean floor so that if you drop anything, it makes it easier to
locate. It happens!! You will need to have the front of your Spyder elevated, and we
use & suggest car ramps, which keeps you safe to lie under. Make sure to set your
parking brake before leaving your Spyder. Some disassembly is required of your
Spyder is required during the installation process. An assortment of tools should be

  • Cordless Drill
  • Flat blade and Phillips Screwdrivers
  • Pliers
  • Torx Drivers, T25 & T30 are the most common
  • 6-10 Zip Ties 6″ to 8″ long

Your factory skid plate will need to be removed and we won’t be reusing it.
Examine the factory skid plate and you will find several screws and bolts need removed.
The quantity varies by model of your Spyder (6-11). Save the screws removed until the
install is completed.

Lay your new Halo Skid on the floor and peel the brown adhesive paper from the Halo
Skid. You will now align the flat side of the Halo Skid with the rail closest to the motor
and install (4) Torx screws by HAND and tighten to support the weight of the Halo Skid,
this will align the tip of the Halo Skid with the front tip of your Spyder. If the tip of the
Halo Skid and your Spyder are not aligned, take a 2nd look at what you have done this

There are (3) holes near the front tip of the Halo Skid that will act as your guide (more
on 2010-13 RT models). Use your cordless drill and 5/16″ drill bit. Using the holes in
your Halo Skid as your guide, drill into the plastic skirting. You are ONLY drilling through
the plastic skirting… Do not go deeper as you will cause damage by doing so. Once the
holes are drilled, remove the (4) torx screws you previously installed and set your Halo
Skid aside. Inspect the (3) holes you drilled and make sure that you have gone through
the plastic skirt.

With the (3) screw nuts provided, slide them onto the body skirting and over the holes
you drilled. Test fit the torx screws by screwing them into the nuts. Be careful to make
certain they are going in smoothly and not cross threading. Then remove the 3 screws &
leave the nuts in skirting. At this point, Remove the Brown paper from the bottom side
of the Halo Skid and examine the (2) wires that exit the Halo Skid labeled (A) Accessory
& (P) Power. Unless you have also ordered Under Glow LED for the center frame, the
wire marked (A) will be sandwiched between the Halo Skid and the bottom of your


Lift the skid into place… Starting at the rear of the Halo Skid install all (7) screws by
HAND do not use power tools with the Accessory wire sandwiched above the Halo

At this point open your Frunk (Front Trunk) door and locate the black access panel
below the left headlight. Remove the push pins & remove the cover. Install the
(supplied) extension cord to the wire that exits the Halo Skid and route that wire through the Spyder to the panel door area that you removed. That extension cord
should be zip tied along the way and routed clear of moving parts and excessive heat.
The extension cord will reach the access panel location.
At this point you will plug the extension cord into the white module & connect the
Red/Black wire harness to the other end of the module and route the OEM connectors
to the lower a-arm on the left side of your Spyder.

Unplug the factory plugs and reconnect by plugging the wire harness in-line
male/female. Now turn on your Spyders ignition and with your Halo Skid remote
control, Power on your remote and run through the colors…

Now that you are up and running, go back through your Spyder and secure the wires
with zip ties.
