If you wish to make an international purchase please contact us at info@millercat.com. By default we only ship to a few international destinations. Please be aware that there may be significant fees for you (the buyer) must pay when you receive the product.

Value Added Taxes (VAT) and import duties are some of the fees that your country will impose on your purchase. We do not know what these fees are and they are solely managed and determined by your customs office.

We have a 90 day manufacturers warranty against defects from the manufacturing process. This covers issues that prevent the proper installation or performance of the product. 

Cosmetic imperfections that occur either from the manufacturing or shipping process are not covered. We do not manufacture a cosmetic product or ones designed for show. Any undercar product will quickly have scratches and scuffs due to the location of the product and proximity to the road.

We do NOT guarantee our product against theft. Cat Shields are a deterrence device that is meant to discourage theft and/or make it more difficult for thieves to steal your converter. Given the right tools, technique or time, a thief can still take your converter. However, by having a shield, you are significantly increasing your protection against theft. Similar to a car or home alarm, you are making thieves second guess themselves and consider moving onto another target. Deterrence works and we have countless customer accounts and video evidence that converter theft stopped (for those with repeated theft) or thieves looked and moved on to other vehicles.

There is a 30 day return policy window for unused products. Please visit this link for more information.

*We do ask that customers carefully make their purchases and reduce the possibility of returns as much as possible. Help us reduce the carbon footprint of these shields as they are large and expensive to ship.

Will not work with Lift Kits that modify the chassis crossmember!

Known for its reliability and longevity, the Toyota Tacoma 2.7L is one of the most popular 4-cylinder trucks on the market. With more than 838,000 Tacomas sold between 2019-2022 alone, this makes the light truck a favorite target for would-be catalytic converter thieves.

The truck’s clearance from the ground gives criminals ample space to work underneath, giving them easy access to the Tacoma’s catalytic converter and allowing them to make off with the goods in a matter of a few minutes.

In a five-month period in 2021 alone, there were more than 26,000 catalytic converter thefts (REPORTED). That’s a whopping 5200 thefts a month, with the Toyota Tacoma landing on the list of the TOP TEN MOST COMMONLY stolen catalytic converters.

Material: 14 Gauge Premium Grade 5052 Aluminum. Material may come with some cosmetic surface imperfections. – Our shields come with the industry leading tamper-proof screws that you cannot purchase anywhere while other competitors use common torx bits. – Our Tacoma shield minimizes holes for thieves to cut through. Our stamped louvers and logos provide ample heat dissipation while showing that your shield was made with MILLERCAT quality and manufacturing capabilities.

Easy Install by an Old Dude

I am a 70 year old retiree with a bad back and I installed this shield on my 2022 4 cylinder Tacoma. Tacoma 4 cylinders have a rear cat that is completely covered by the shield. The fit was perfect and went on with no trouble. The security torque screws help keep it secure and thief proof. I took my time installing it and I am now buying a Cat Shield for my daughter’s V6. The CAT Shield is well made and engineered. No rattles and no strange noises. The sound of your engine will sound a little different as the shield forces the noise upward. Only one thing I would add is a small hole drilled into the CAT Shield where the transmission fluid over flow drain hole is located. However since Tacoma transmissions are supposed to be a sealed unit, you may not need to change your transmission oil for a very long time. Finally when you purchase it, down load and print the installation instructions from the CAT SHIELD site as the color pictures are easier to see than the black and white photos in the instructions sent with the box. Note: Houston Texas police department just arrested crime ring with over $12 million in stolen catalytic converters and guns.

Straightforward Installation

Super impressed! The quality of the product exceed my expectations and it was so well engineered to take advantage of the truck’s body frame to bolt on using only two hand tools. Took me one and a half hours to install without using floor jacks.

A bit of backstory: Back in Jan 2022, thefts stole my catalytic converter near my work in the DAYLIGHT! Waited seven months for the new catalytic converter to arrive. The moment I got my truck back, I ordered this cat shield and installed it immediately before I dare drive my truck anywhere.

Park anywhere with peace of mind.

Before install, going to the mall or other places caused some anxiety. Now I don’t think twice and while I know not impossible to steal, I highly doubt anyone is going to waste their time on stealing mine.

Can’t wait to install

Had a little mishap when I received the box. It was missing the little support plate with two revit nuts and one revit nut was missing on the rear support plate. I sent an email to support and the fixed the issue and sent me what I needed, kudos for that with not questions asked. I haven’t put on my tacoma v4 as of yet, my truck is still at the shop waiting on the catalytic converter which is on back order. Not really sure when I will get my truck back, no ETA on shipment of the cat. I can’t wait to put the car shield on!

2020 Tacoma SR 2.7L

Easy to assemble and install. There are a couple of things I’d change in manufacturing. 1) add the holes for the transmission drain plug so that it doesn’t have to be removed for service. 2) the little plate for the front cross member completely blocks all five drain holes. Out of the five supplied bolts, I left the center bolt out on mine for drainage. I think the four other bolts will hold that just fine. But, I’m still a little worried it may hold water in the cross member.

Had the dealer install it I tried to do it on my own at my apartment complex and everyone was thinking I was stealing my own cat. Came out great. Thanks again.

Best investment for peace of mind

Just installed my Cat Shield on my 2021 Tacoma 2.7L – 2WHD. I live in the greater Houston area and we are plagued with Cat thefts, just yesterday an off duty sheriff’s deputy was killed when he confronted 3 persons trying to steal his converters from his truck at a grocery store, very sad.
The installation was quick (about 2hrs) and the instructions written very well. Miller has engineered this to fit exactly, all attachment points line up and there is no pushing or fighting to get this installed. The material is thick enough to offer great protection, without adding a lot of weight. Anyone with basic skills can install this; I did mine without lifting the truck. Great product made in America. I would recommend MillerCAT for everyone. As stated in other reviews I can sleep better (my truck lives outside) and I worry less when leaving my truck in a public parking area regardless of the time of day. As for the price, it’s actually very close to competitors if you figure in shipping, handling and taxes. Plus competitors don’t offer the rear Cat shield.

Cat Shield

After my catalytic converter was stolen, I had a few sleepless nights. The MillerCat shield gave me peace of mind. I decided to have it professionally in stalled at the Toyota dealership and they stated that it was the best shield they had ever worked with. Worth the money!

Well-Engineered Product

I’ve bought cat shield for my Prius from Miller Cat before, and I prefer the no drill bolt-on shield. The 2.7L Tacoma shield is the same way. I’m not a professional, but I was able to use hand tools to assembly it under 3 hours.

The torque spec for the smaller screws seem a bit too high, I tightened them to snug and more torque I probably would round off the screws making it impossible to remove it.

And yes, you DO need to remove the front shield to change the transmission fluid, but the rear shield can stay on forever unless you need to service the oxygen sensor.

The 2 bolts that are supposed to go into the frame couldn’t be installed because the drilled holes on the shield are way off and I figure I just skip those 2 as the shield is already very secure from being bolted onto the bracket.

After some test driving, I’m pleased. No rattle.

Overall, good job MILLERCAT for making this product, now I can go grocery shopping in Houston again in my Tacoma
