RH4X4 Product Info

Rock Hard 4x4 is very proud to offer the Heaviest Duty 1/4" Thick Control Arm Skid Plates for the Jeep TJ/LJ, XJ D30/D44.

100% bolt-on skid plates for your vulnerable front and rear lower control arm mounts. The OEM Dana 30 and 44 control arm mounts aren't braced or skid plated and are the lowest points on your rig. First to hit, first to break!

Our 1/4" thick skid plates are made from a solid sheet of steel then bent, formed, and hand welded into it's highly protective shape. Notched for zerk grease fittings found on common control arm joint upgrades.

Our skid plate system is the industry standard because of the confidence it instills in each and every customer. Each control arm skid is laser cut from 1/4" thick steel coated in our weather and debris resistant powder coat finish. Strength is proven on virtually all Jeep enthusiast forums with glowing reviews. Since 2007 our skid plate system has been the undisputed leader in undercarriage protection.

What comes in every kit:
  • Driver and Passenger Side Skid Plates
  • Hardware
  • Installation Instructions

Three Reasons Why:
  • Installs in minutes
  • 1/4" thick plate steel
  • Unmatched quality and fitment

NOTE: Not compatible with alignment cam bolts.

Why not weld on skid plates?
Unless you have hours to kill, not to mention a welder, go for it. We've found however that even weld-on versions aren't 1/4" thick steel.

Will these spin off during a hard impact?

No. Built in retention bends prevent the skid plate from rotating backwards.

Is any welding required?
No. Our mounting method allows for a DIY no-weld, truly bolt-in install.

What finish is available?
Rock Hard 4x4 skid plates ship powder coated black with a semi-smooth, semi-gloss finish.

Where is this mount made?
This product, like all RH4x4 parts, was designed, developed, tested, manufactured, and if applicable, powder coated, and shipped in the USA. And we don't mean the 75% legal standard to be able to say Made in USA. We are 100% Made in the United States of America!

Excellent quality
The parts are obviously very strong. I admit will have to modify the skid plates for the rear. There's a clearance issue because I have Falcon shocks and a Rock Jock Anti-sway bar installed so will have to cut a few spots, to make them fit correctly. I chose Rock Hard 4x4 years ago for my TJ and it's protected front, back and sides by their quality in workmanship.

Seems members of my Jeep club saw the skid plates on my RIG and started asking for the link. I'm sure some orders will be on the way. These are BEEFY and should be great protection on my next trip.
