Nth Degree Mobillity Oil Pan Skid (4.0L)

Extreme Clearance. Skid bolts on to engine block and transmission bell housing, giving you protection only where you need it- no excess and uncessary steel. Because the skid will now move with the exhaust and engine, there are no rattles- just solid protection.
Bolt-on Installation uses existing unused holes in engine block and transmission too create simple and easy installation
Easy Oil Changes . No need to drop the skid, convenient holes allow you to quickly drain your oil with no mess .

* Oil Pan Skid to fit 1987-2006 4.0L Jeep engine oil pan
* Engine-Mounted, pan-hugging design for maximum ground clearance (inches higher than frame-mounted designs can acheive).
* Boxed Construction using 3/16” steel prevents not just punctures but also prevents crushing the pan.
* Tidy Fit clears TJ-style exhausts and XJ/ZJ/WJ front driveshafts with no body, motor, or suspension lift limitations.

Nth Degree Mobillity Oil Pan Skid (4.0L)

The unit is heavy duty and well constructed. It is 3/16" seel and comes in a grey powdercoat finish. Installation was simple, only 4 bolts are used to hold it in place -- two in the engine block and two in the transmission bellhousing. Total installation time was right around 30 minutes. Testing to follow shortly...

I also have had my Jeep on this skid. It protects the whole oil pan and is compact and does not get in the way of other components.

Nth Degree Mobillity Oil Pan Skid (4.0L)

Should have thought this one through before i bought it. This thing anchors to the top of the iol pan and the bell housing- not good areas to transfer the shock of a big rock hit to. Eventually, I will replace it with a full oil pan/ engine skid and sell this one in the parts section. Maybe someone who didn't read my honest review will buy it from me.

Extremelt strong. Only bolts to the engine and transmission housing so there is not problems with whatever lift you have.

Nth Degree Mobillity Oil Pan Skid (4.0L)

solid design but awkward install. Also had to tweak as it was vibrating against my oil pan causing some nasty noises. very srong though and serves intended purpose without robbing clearance

Nth Degree Mobillity Oil Pan Skid (4.0L)

Very nice skidplate, it wraps tightly against the oil pan to stay out of the way but is nice and durable and will support the whole weight of the Jeep should a rock come in the way.

Had many dings in the stock skid plate, was pushing my luck, this was one of my first upgrades, to bad they went out of business.

Nth Degree Mobillity Oil Pan Skid (4.0L)

Great skid but a royal pain to install unless the block is new and the front mounting holes aren't rusty and full of crud.
