JKS MiniSkids are essentially miniature skid plates for the lower suspension arm brackets on the front axle. The clever design spans the front of each bracket to create a boxed structure for increased strength and integrity.
When properly welded to the axle and OE brackets, our MiniSkids prevent damage and deformation, and provide much-needed protection of the caster adjustment bolts and suspension arm bushings.
MiniSkids are laser cut from thick 1/4" plate steel and folded for increased rigidity and proper clearance of the suspension arms. They are supplied in raw form and require painting following installation.

Price: $25.00
Pros: Straightened out my front lower control arm mounts and added protection.
Cons: Had to be welded on, which meant I had to take them to a shop and have them installed for money.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: What is there to say? They are welded onto the lower control arm brackets and provide decent protection. I just needed something to straighten out the brackets as they were being bent.

Cons: None

Comments: After bending one of my lower control arm mounts I decided to buy these for the new set. Now it's much stronger and I'm not worried about damaging them on the rocks.
