    Comments about Rugged Ridge Heavy Duty Differential Skid Plate:

    Good, quality fit and function at a nice price. Overall decent protection. Only bad side is the sub-par allen bolts. Re-use your originals, as the allen head bolts are easy to strip if they are snug and RTV is around the threads on install.
