Skid Plates

Besides factory what are my other options? I'm mainly looking for differential, t-case, transmission, and drive shaft protection. Just looking to broaden my horizon before i jump in and buy

I did a quick google search and honestly it seems most skids out there are for the KJ platform. There's always justforjeeps.com but if you're going Mopar oem I would get ahold of the parts dept. at a local Jeep dealer - should save you some $ in shipping.

Not entirely sure what's out there as far as aftermarket skids. Mopar might be one of the only, if not the only producer of skids as of now. Someone might know otherwise though.

Yea I talked to a local Jeep Dealership that has an off road center and they said right now the only skids out there are the Mopar ones.

Only problem with the mopar skids is they eat up a lot mud. I spent 2 hours pulling the mud out by hand and pressure washing it the last time I went out. They are beneficial for rock protection but they come at a price.

I love them. Had a few inches of snow a few weeks ago and they did great in it. I have not used them for serious offroading yet, just some fire roads and they did great. Could have tested them out on a water crossing that had a sandy bottom but being out there by myself I figured I wouldn't quite yet lol. They are quite at all speeds, just a little heavy. I love the look of them, they're different then other A/T, a little more aggressive looking. But I love them I just need to put some wheel spacers to make them look even better. But that will come in a few weeks.
