Any junkyards near your area? I can pick one up for you if you'd like, don't know what pricing would be on it though.

If I knew there was a demand for them I would've kept mine. Ripped mine off during the engine swap and never put it back on. But it already left with the garbage week's ago.

I ripped mine off also, wouldnt mind tracking down another though to save the alternator some water exposure. Its in a pretty vulnerable location.

It's a "fitted sheet" of rubber that goes under the motor to act as a splash guard. Only reason I knew what they were talking about was I'd seen one on an XJ at the boneyard once and wondered - what the hell is this inconvenient piece of junk?

I thinks Spokes is having a bit of fun. Leave it on for the salt season. You'll probably rip it off sooner or later though, whenever you need to fix something behind it.

Is yours on? A couple of the eyelets or whatever they are are ripped so it sort of sags at the sides
Ill take it off when I need to do work behind it or this spring
