Customers who need their products right away may want to pay for expedited shipping. Here are a few things to consider when choosing a faster shipping method.

– Miller CAT provides the option for faster shipping but is only a pass through for any charges. We do not make any money off of this service.

– When calculating your possible receive date, please remember that shipping services do not ship on weekends or holidays and that orders received after 1:00pm PST cannot be guaranteed to ship that day.

– Due to COVID and high volume of shipments, carriers are not always able to meet their target shipping times. Please understand we have no control over shipment tracking or times after the product leaves our facilities. 

– If you live in California or the West Coast, you may not need that expedited shipping. UPS ground can reach your destination in one to two days.

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. Click here to find out more about the manufacturing process and what you might expect from your product.

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.

Material:  Select either 304 Stainless Steel (16 gauge) for the ultimate deterrence or 5052 Aluminum (12 gauge). Find out more about the difference in material here

– 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.

*Professional installation recommended. 

** Our Tacoma Shields are designed with the assumption your vehicle has a Radiator Support Splash Shield installed. Toyota Part Number 51406-04020.

Cat shield for 2007 Tacoma

The whole experience was awesome. It arrived very quick and installation was simple. I loved the bolt-on feature as I really did not want to drill holes in the frame as I have read from other competitors that were selling similar shields.

Perfect fit, easy install Catshield 2006 Taco

Got this for my 06 Taco double cab TRD. I was able to do this myself in about an hour from the paper instructions provided and previewing a utube installation video. Tips include hand tighten the mount screws so you can adjust the front/back attachments, then go back and tighten everything after the loose mount. I started with the back 2 piece brackets then secured the shield from the front using my knees for shield piece support. With the front 3 holes attachment loose, i proceeded to the back 2 attach points with the long screws and supplied washers, followed by the remaining 3 shield to back bracket closeout. As advertised, this was successfully installed with no added drilling required. Highly recommend!
