Product Information

MSRP: $150.00
Average Price: $143.64
Manufacturer: Warn
Yes: 10 / No: 5

Warn Oil Pan Skid Plate for Jeep Warngler TJ 1997-03 6CYL (Excludes Rubicon Model) -- The unique design virtually eliminates rust creating welds. The skid plate is a bolt on design with a frame attachmetn bracket that allows drive shaft travel. It also means easy conversion from a stock to lifted vehicle. Made from 1/8 in. and 3/8 in. steel and black powder coated.

Slightly lighter weight than most competitor's skids, this skid is not suggested for hardcore rock crawling. However, MOST users will find it serves well to protect against normal dings and potential damage.

Provides excellent value for those seeking moderate bolt on protection.

Price: $190.00
Pros: Sturdy construction, mounts to frame instead of engine (Always a plus)
Cons: Difficult installation
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Very satisfied with this skid, as I have been with most Warn Products. Only issue with it was the installation. It is a very heavy and so sturdy that you can't flex it at all during installation, in which case, many things are difficult to line up, and difficult to get tools to. However, I did the install in my driveway, so anyone with a carlift will have less trouble than I did. Very good skid otherwise. Thicker than most others on the market, and eliminates my worries of stressing the engine mounts since it installs to the frame.

Price: $185.00
Pros: easy install, fair protection
Cons: possible contact with drive shaft
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I got this as part of a purchase package from my dealer. The drive shaft can make contact with the mounting tab on the driver's side if the vehicle is not lifted. Once lifted, there's plenty of room. Oil changes are messy unless you use some rags to shield the oil from pouring into the skid pan.

Price: $150.00
Pros: Lower cost, not all that difficult to install, minimizes the shovel effect
Cons: 1/8" steel, front DS sometimes could contact the mount depending on your lift, is a skid plate, that is about all it's good for. skidding.
Recommended? No

Comments: Your money is better spent on the Skid Row engine skid or a high end skid like Rokmen, or UCF.

It isn't horrible and does what it needs to do. It just isn't as stout as most of the other options. It will bend if you come down hard but in the end it will protect your oil pan and transmission more than nothing at all.

Comments: Too thin, but will protect your oil pan and tranny, the problem is you will have to take it off a couple times a year to try to pound the thing straight again.

Price: $110.00
Pros: I like how it reduces the "shovel" effect of the transfer case skid.
Cons: Bends kind of easy.
Recommended? No

Comments: It's not a bad skid but if you wan to do it right I would look at a heavier more expensive option. I will provide protection and I guess that's the most important thing.

Warn 65020 Engine Skid (6-cyl)
Pros: Better than no skid
Cons: Thin, bends easily, rusts
Recommended? No

Comments: I installed this skid without researching. I thought because it was made by Warn it would be solid. Mine was bent badly and started to rust within a year. Better than nothing, but will not hold up to rocks. Will probably protect you fine in the mall parking lot.
