Product Information

MSRP: $325.00
Average Price: $267.49
Manufacturer: skid row
Yes: 6 / No: 0

These skid plates are made from 1/4" thick steel and reinforced with 1/4" angle to provide beefy protection for your engine's oil pan and your transmission. Installation is quick and easy and only requires drilling of two holes to attach the rear of our skid plate to whatever transfer case skid plate you are using. There is even an oil drain hole so that you can perform your regular maintenance without removing the skid plate. Take a look at the pictures below!
We provide carriage bolts to attach our skid plate to the transfer case skid plate. Why not use counter sunk bolts? Simply because we've had problems removing counter sunk bolts after they've been run over rocks a few times. Metal always seems to get pushed into the recessed hex. Also, once a little rust gets into the threads, getting enough torque to break them loose without stripping out the hex can be VERY difficult to say the least! We've had to drill countersunk bolts out in the past and can't say we were happy about it. By using carriage bolts the bottom is smoother than with a hex head bolt and there is a nut on top that you can get a wrench or socket onto. We've found that we like carriage bolts much better
Which one fits?
To determine which model skid plate you need simply take a measurement from the engine's oil drain plug to the leading edge of the transfer case skid plate. You'll get a measurement of approximately 16" or 20".

Please Note: Fits 6 cylinder models ONLY.
Also, if you have an aftermarket exhaust header that goes under your engine or transmission, our skid plate may not fit properly. An example would be the Borla exhaust header for 1997 model TJ's.
If you're unsure, it's best to contact us and ask.

Comments: This skid is an easy install, and is solid as a rock. I have the RE long arm and it bolts right up to the front of the RE trans mount. Definitely worth the money.

Recommended? Yes

Comments: This thing is BEEFY. The install took a little bit of working, just because of the tabs that hold the arms in place. It covers, very effectively, the transmission pan, and engine oil pan. I have banged this up pretty hard, and it is none the worse for wear.
