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.

Comments: Great skid plate. I feel very confident with it under my oil pan. Only ever seen pictures online of someone who bent theirs.
Taking the skid on and off when working around the jeep is a pain, but the protection is worth it.

Comments: Awesome product - since I don't have much lift, my XJ depends on this to slide over a lot of stuff. It keeps my vital parts safe.

Comments: This skid is better than Rusty's engine skid. I removed Rusty's because the mounting cross bar was rubbing muffler and would not fit right. The skid came without mounting kits so I had to call skid Row who was great overnighting missing parts; not their fault -- as I bought it from a reseller. I had hard time locating a store with one in stock. Excellent customer support from Skid Row. I was leaving for Moab the following week, so Skid Row overnighted missing parts and did not charge anything at all. They stand behind their products.

Comments: excellent quality and durability, very easy install. the only issue is that the YJ version are all made for a 4.0L, I have a 4.2L and the oil drain hole is too far off. I have to remove skid to change oil.
