As you know, your JK came with a cheap plastic "skid plate" that won't hold up to any offroad use. If you haven't torn it off already, why leave it there? We've got a new replacement that looks great and will hold up to the kinds of things a Jeep is supposed to be able to handle. This skid plate includes all the hardware. There is no drilling or cutting required to install this skid plate. While it can be installed on Rubicon models with the remote sway bar disconnect, it isn't designed to protect the disconnect motor. This skid plate is constructed from 1/8" thick steel and is powder coated for a long lasting and durable finish.
