HD Transfer Case Skid Plate for '97-'06 Jeep Wrangler TJ

Some people call these "belly-pans" and others call them "tummy-tuckers". Fit Jeeps with standard or automatic transmissions.

It is made from 3/16" thick carbon steel plate. The parts were designed in 3D CAD software and laser cut then bent on a CNC press brake for a perfect fit every time.

The transfer case skid is reinforced in the middle of the skid from one side to the other with a stiffening channel/transmission mount. The front and rear edges are ramped to aid in sliding over obstacles. It will increase ground clearance by about 2" over the factory skid plate. The total height of this system is about 2".

We recommend that you have at least a 1" body lift to install this skid plate with no body/transfer case vibration issues.

This product listing does not include the transmission pan skid plate.

Mounting hardware not included. Shipped UPS in bare steel.

Price: $664.98
Pros: Bolt on transfer case skid replacement, even with a larger Rubi Transfer case Very stout and well constructed Lo-Pro mount means no body lift
Cons: Locker pump bracket is basically useless Engine skid mounts required modification to clear long arms
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Love my UnderCover Fabs skid system. I had to make a very slight indentation on my tub with the Lo-Pro. But it was a very small amount and I didn't have to use a body lift. Skids are well made and bolted up properly everywhere they should have, except for the fact that one of the front arms that supports the engine skid was exactly in line with where my Clayton upper control arm is. I had to fab up an extra bracket that moved the arm out of the way of the Clayton arm. Probably not a problem with stock control arm mounting locations.

Locker pump bracket is completely unnecessary. I ended up not even using mine which is disappointing as I paid extra for it. Overall a great system that is very reasonably priced and delivers great clearance without a ton of sacrifice in many other areas.

Price: $700.00
Pros: Welds
Cons: Buyer Beware, Customer Service is the worst
Recommended? No

Comments: Buyer Beware,
Matthew is not in the business of selling quality Jeep products. It's all about making money and it's the worst customer service. In my experience with UCF you can pay just a little more from another company and receive a product that's quality and will have someone stand behind their product to make sure the customers satisfied and will buy other products from them.

Price: $400.00
Pros: perfect tummy tuck set up
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I got the Ultra High clearance skid in 3/16 inch with the lo pro mount. (that's why it was $400). I love the way it looks without that stupid shovel hanging down. Instructions for the Lo Pro mount were easy to follow...Installing the skid with a floor jack is kind of tricky but not impossible.

Pros: Much heavier than stock
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I won this in a forum drawing here. This is actually a replacement trans. cross member, not a skid plate. Nice product, much heavier then stock and install was very easy took about 30 minutes. Haven't tested it on the rocks yet but anything is better then the stock cross member.

Price: $474.00
Pros: Excellent construction and welds.
Cons: Don't get the locker pump bracket - it doesn't fit anywhere if you have a Rubicon.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I have the Original "Extra-Clearance" Skid in 3/8 aluminum. Install went smooth. Gained just a bit over 2" from the factory skid. I also used the Lo-Pro mount to keep drive line angles easy.

Skid has excellent welds and bolted right up with no problems.

Pros: Lots of ground clearance
Cons: Must have BL and MML. Probably adjustable CAs and SYE too.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Just got mine installed. A bit more driveline noise, but I expected that.

I might have to add some adjustable control arms to get rid of some vibrations.

Pros: durable 1/4" steel, cost, simplicity
Cons: tight fit, but worth the clearance
Recommended? Yes

Comments: 1/4" steel, can't hurt it. I twisted the engine skid, but I fell off a rock 4 feet onto it to get it that way. I'd purchase again!

Price: $260.00
Pros: Very well made. The fit is great making install very easy.
Cons: Rubicon locker pump mounting bracket is kinda wonky.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I got the "No Body Lift" version of this skid plate to avoid drastically changing the driveline angles. This version gives about 1.5 inches of extra clearance over stock. The skid installed easily, but I had problems with the locker pump bracket. Their pictures show it mounted next to the t-case running parallel to the frame rail, but I couldn't get it there. I ended up having a friend weld it to the top lip at the back of the skid, perpendicular to the frame. This orientation keeps it pretty close to stock, but raises the pumps a few inches.

Price: $700.00
Pros: Very well built, easy to specify and purchase, very thorough design, solid construction, outstanding price
Cons: No instructions for installation, comes in numerous pieces with no indication.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Overall this is an outstanding skid plate system, especially for the money. Solidly built. Only slight complaints are zero instructions on how to assemble everything. It was shipped with no wrapping or packaging on the skids, they were taped together with the hardware in a box taped to the skids. The fitment of the front of the engine skid to its brackets required some persuasion. Would have preferred countersunk bolts to attach the engine and trans skid together.

Pros: Perfect fitment
Cons: need to cut and re-weld cat exh mount about 1 in if you have no BL otherwise the cat hits the floor
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Did this and a Novak cable, AA sye and a TW CV shaft at the same time. About 4hrs start to finish. Had the cut the Cat mount down about 1in and re-weld so it would'nt hit the floor. I bought the no BL lift skid. Awesome plate worth the $164
