Rock Hard 4x4 is very proud to offer the Heaviest Duty Steering Box Skid Plate for the Jeep Wrangler CJ 1976 - 1986.
Please note: RH-4002-CJ does NOT have a laser cut out on front/top where 2 mounting holes are. You may see this cutout in some photos on our site, that is the RH-4002 for the TJ/LJ Wrangler.
For Rock Hard 4x4 front bumper only. This is not a universal skid plate.
Hardcore rock crawlers and light duty fire road explorers alike need to add the Rock Hard 4x4 skid plate system to their build list. Protect your extremely vulnerable steering box from trail debris and obstacles with our 3/16" thick plate steel skid plate.
Our 3/16" thick skid plate is made from a solid sheet of steel then bent, formed, and hand welded into it's highly protective shape. When combined with our front bumper mount it makes a true skid rather than a rock catcher.
Unique Design Proven by the most hardcore drivers on trails like the Rubicon, Moab, Rausch Creek and more, our skid plate system's design is the key to it's popularity.
Our system is cut and formed from a single sheet making it smooth and seamless. This gives you a true skid plate without rock catching and high centering flaws found in low-budget alternatives. We do more than just protect your steering box from straight on impact though - we have welded plates to the sides of our skid plate for side impact protection that also helps glide you off the obstacle rather than an abrupt stop.
Mounting The RH4x4 steering box skid plate requires a Rock Hard 4x4 front bumper.

Each skid is laser cut from 3/16" thick steel coated in our weather and debris resistant powder coat finish. Strength is proven on virtually all Jeep enthusiast forums with glowing revie
