mounts very solid very heavy duty easy to install
No instructions with the Product
Did the install myself with floor jack and bottle . scissor jacks. Instructions were poor however OK to figure out once I spent time under the Jeep. Haven't had a chance to try it out yet.
Let's be honest here. This is a big slab of steel that has been cut, bent, powdercoated, and stuffed in a box with some nuts & bolts and stuff. Kind of expensive when you think of it, but way cheaper than a laser cutter, hydraulic press, and powdercoating equipment so I'm cool with that. It showed up, I dumped it out of the box, then unfolded said box and used it so I could slide under the Jeep because the grass was wet. It bolted straight up easy-peasy, no big deal. It is pretty heavy, but I was able to pin it to the chassis with one arm and my right knee while I was threading the crossmember bolts. The next day I took it out into the woods and bashed it on some rocks. Scraped the powdercoat right off, but some rattle-can undercoat fixed that right up. Otherwise really didn't hurt the skid, because huge slab of steel plate. I plan to get the rest of the kit, because my factory skids aren't doing so well. Also came with a cool sticker, and who doesn't like stickers? Get that Jeep a sticker. Jeeps love stickers.
Excellent quality and engineering.
What type of material is this made from? What is Thickness of Material?

I have a 2014 JKUR will this mount with the factory bumper or do I have to have a different bumper that it says it mounts to?

Will this skid plate work with a jeep having a manual transmission? Also will this work with a teraflex full flexarm suspension lift kit with upper and lower flexarms?
