Skid Plate Help!

I am thinking about ordering the factory skid plates for my 08 KK from the Jeep dealer here. Are those good plates or should I go with the plates that are on JustforJeeps.com? They cover the same areas from what I'm told. I just want to get the best I can for my Liberty. Any help is appreciated.

Justforjeeps sells the mopar skids. Right now those are the only skid plates available for the KK, unless you want to go custom making some.

Asfir has/had skids for the KK, but I think they'd have to be imported from Isreal..

I believe you'll be short one plate versus a KK that came with the factory skid plate package. I can't remember which one at the moment.

Radiator skid. You can buy it, but it's considered a replacement part.

You should get the skid plate part numbers (mopar.com) and then google/ebay search for the skids elsewhere for cheaper...you can find the trans and tcase for $50 each.

They're on LOST. I'll look for the thread and post it.

Thanks Everyone! I'm going to probably order online and once they are here and installed...Get some photos. Also on the agenda for the remainder of the summer is my lift kit, new tires (probably 255/70/17), bug/air deflector for the hood, and window tinting the front doors. I'm excited to get her out and see what she is capable of. I have a feeling I will be presently surprised!
