FAQ:
Long Arm or Short Arm skid plate?
To determine which skid plate you need, simply look at your suspension goals. If you are or have relocated your control arm mounts on your frame, then you need the long arm skid plate. If your control arms are in their OEM locations, as in you did not cut off and weld in new control arm mounts, then go with our short arm skid plate.

Do I experience any driveline vibration or noise?
No. Our oil pan / transmission / dual cat skid mounts away from all driveline components giving you factory like performance. You'd never know the skid was even installed!

Do I have to remove or replace my factory cross member with an aftermarket one to install this skid plate?
No.

I've read I have to remove my crossmember to install this skid plate. Is that true?
No, it's a common question. On newer Jeep Wrangler JK's there's a factory "skid" that takes up the same real estate as our skid plate. That must be removed to install our skid plate.


Will this skid work with my HEMI swap?
We offer HEMI swap specific brackets. Please click here.

Is my 3.6L exhaust loop covered?
No. Your exhaust loop produces enormous amounts of heat that can be trapped by a skid plate in that area. If it becomes too hot it will crack and fail.

5 of 5 Great experience July 16, 2021
Reviewer: JT from Portland, OR United States  
Loved the product, very heavy (solid). I did not pay attention to the different bolts on the install so was having trouble with the last two and realized I had put the wrong ones on the front mounting brackets, they are virtually the same length but different thread. Shipping took longer than expected, but it was worth the wait.

5 of 5 Excellent coverage May 18, 2021
Reviewer: Alex Marshall from overland park, KS United States  
Installed this kit in a day. This was my first real “mod” that I was doing myself and I still felt it was easy even for me. I would recommend installing the shim -  I thought I had enough clearance but on my test drive I had an exhaust rattle. But I was able to install the shim by just loosing bolts and sliding it in so not a big deal. I went wheeling with it and felt very protected, covers all the import bits and then some. And the price is a great value for what you get. Highly recommend.

Reviewer: Dan from Orangevale, CA United States  
I actually just got these installed yesterday.  Was a very smooth install, took me about two hours for this skid and transfer case skid plate install.  I did have one issue with the install, the bolt that goes all the way through the cross member hit the manual transmission mount enough it wouldn’t allow it to tighten up.  I ended up finding a shorter bolt I had (smaller diameter too) that allowed me to tighten it up.  It still touches the mount, but barely.  Great product and well thought out.  One person install too.

5 of 5 Excellent product and customer service October 26, 2020
Reviewer: Alecia Getz from York Springs , PA United States  
I called in a panic to check if skid plates would arrive on time for an upcoming event. Not only did they answer my questions but made sure it was delivered before event with some time to install. The skid plates were champions on the blue trails at Rausch Creek Offroad park. They took several hard hits with minimal damage and saved my undercarriage.
Don't look anywhere else because the customer service can not be beat, the product is awesome and the price is great.
