These skid plates help protect various parts of your driveline, so you won't be left stranded off-road by an unfortunate experience. Skid plate is finished in semi gloss black powder coat. Features: 3/16 thick steel, prevents damage to the underside of engine, and bolt-on installation-attaches in 3 locations.
Bolted this skidrow gas skid under my 1990 xj. Smashed and bashed it and it with stands the abuse I put to it. Awesome product. Also have there motor and t case skids as well.
This is a well-executed, very heavy-duty skid plate. I had already dinged my control arm mounts; the design is one of the few dumb things that Jeep did on the TJ series. This does reduce ground clearance by close to an inch under the control arm, but should glide over rocks fairly easy. But...I can see a risk that they could hang up like a hook when going in reverse. But I thought I'd give them a shot, especially as they not only protect the mount, but act as a reinforcing anchor point for the control arm mounting bolt. Installation guide was very thorough. Also, I had upgraded the control arm mounts to provide a cam for camber adjustment, and had no problems installing.
Easy to install. Very strong and much better as a skid plate than the piece of plastic junk it comes with
What can I say? It's a skid plate. Right thickness. Easier to install with two people or a jack to hold the plate in place. Recommend install without front bumper on if you can.
The armor is really well put together and works great on XJs. However, it does not fit Comanche's as advertised without significant modifications. If you are buying this for a Comanche, I would still recommend this product, but be prepared to modify it for desired fit and installation.
This product fits on my 2012 JK perfectly! took only 10 minutes to install. Very pleased with this Skid. 100% better then the plastic junk that comes with new jeep!
I have never installed a skid plate before. The instructions were easy to follow. The hardware is an exact fit. Did the bolt turn around on the suspension link. Installing the skid plate with all bolts hand tight, was actually easy. The plate was a little heavy (~48lb.) but I was able to put it in place by hand. I tightened all the hardware with 1/2" drive ratchet, extensions, and a couple of wrenches. I had to do a review because it fit better than any other aftermarket part I've ever installed. Clears the power train, exhaust, and oil pan very nicely. The engine oil drain plug ends up exactly in the center of the opening. Did the complete instal without help in an easy hour. This skid plate is truly a bolt in place without modification.
Will this fit a 2011 JK with a stock bumper? Will the bumper be required to be removed are can it just be attached to it as it is still on the JK? Is there any drilling that needs to be done to add the Front Skid Plate to the stock bumper?

Hi Chell, This Skid Row Off Road Front Skid Plate is a direct replacement for the OEM plastic plate. There is no drilling or modifications needed, the bumper does not need removed to install it. Thanks for your inquiry.

I have a Smittybilt XRC front bumper that bolts to the crossmember between the frame rails as well. Will I be able to install this sway bar disonnect skid plate with the Smittybilt front bumper? More directly will I be able to have the lip of this armor under the bottom lip of the Smittybilt bumper to give a smoother transistion if I was to push over a rock?

Hey Gibby, the Skid Row Off Road Sway Bar Disconnect Skid Plate would work for you. Thanks for your question.

2002 3.7 KJ right hand drive will it fit?
Asked by Stew from Telford England on
Hello Stew, that's tough to answer because we don't have a right hand drive model available to test fit on. The manufacturer specifically designed this for the LHD model, so I'm going to guess it wouldn't fit without some modification. Please let us know if you have any other questions, thanks.
