UCF belly skid warranty question

I purchased a 2 inch deep belly skid for my 99 4cyl TJ and put a few small wheeling trips on it and everything was fine with an sye and cv shafts no vibes or rattles and seemed extremely strong wit the cnc bent main structure with the chanel support/crossmember. Well I wheeled just a few weeks ago and on that adventure I got high centered on to the skid not the hole weight of the jeep just the front portion and it was 6 to 8 inches of a jounce keep in mind it was local event so I had 1/2 a tank of gas in my fuel cell so 5 to 6 gal. No tools no spare tire. Stripped interior and one 100 pound passenger and myself at 130 lbs. If you have followed my build thread you know I'm on 35s 3 inches of lift and stretched a few inches but have cut alot of weight out. After comming dow the obstacle hearing all sorts or rattles and vibes and not being able to shift without hitting the dash I crawled under to find that my skid was bowed upward 1 to 1 1/4 inches and I'm talking the center inner support/crossmember that the transfercase bolts to as well as the outter portion of the skid it's self. I am not pleased with this at all especially with the price and was wondering what the product warranty or such was with UCF as the conditions of this occasion. Now I can understand that if t had fallen loaded full tank of gas passenger spare tire tools and a foot and a half and it caved I could walk away and said well that could have been worse. So any help would be great!
