Nemesis Industries NEW Skids Plates

Hopefully, some of you saw the new aluminum skids we had on our Jeeps at SEMA this year. We are getting ready to release them and are currently in the final stages of testing. Here is a little teaser video to tide you over until we officially release them! Enjoy

At this point, we don't have plans for a TJ skid plate system.

As for the price point we are in the final stages of the development process, only after a final design is complete can we start our pricing analysis.

We have designed the system so that you can build into it, however you do have to purchase the skids in a certain order. The gas tank skid is the keystone for the system, next is the transfercase/cross member skid, the last part is the oil pan/transmission pan skid. We were initially testing a system that could be purchased in any order however, they were unable to withstand the abuse we felt the skid would see.

These skid plates are designed to work off each other to maximize the strength of the entire system.

Stay tuned for a more in depth video on the entire system.

The specific type of aluminum is proprietary and not something we'd like to discuss publicly.

This industry is notorious for copied designs, and we've been victims of that several times. Since part of why we are involved in this industry is to try to bring innovation and fresh ideas back into the off road world, we're very apprehensive about giving away details like that.

lets see some innovation for the earlier models too!

Any plans to protect that lower control arm mount? At 2:04, it looks to be a little tweaked...

We'd love to, and all of us here at Nemesis love older jeeps, but as a growing business we have to be focused on vehicles that are still in production. Maybe someday though.

Good eye...

We haven't had any significant problems with the lower control arm mounts yet...but if enough people are experiencing issues we'll look into making solutions for that as well.

Instead of starting a new thread on our finished skid system, add to this one.

INFO

The system is comprised of 4 main pieces, the gas tank skid/mount, transfer case/cross member skid, the oil and transmission skid, and the key to the boltless design the intermediate plate. By using the intermediate plate and bolting it to the transmission cross member we are able to connect all of the other pieces not from the bottom like everyone else but from the sides, front, and back making a series of I-beams to increase the strength of each component once bolted together. After our initial testing of the factory skids we knew the areas that were impacted the hardest so in those areas we use 3 layers of 3/16” aluminum giving us a combined thickness of 9/16” the thickest on the market for the most protection. Due to the size and span of the transfer case/cross member plate we use 2 layers of 3/16” aluminum and 3/8” ribs spanning the length of the plate. In addition to the ribs we also designed a bolt on rear support that sits just below one of the frame cross members so that on extreme hits we can absorb and then transfer the remaining energy back to the frame. The transfer case skid was designed to work with the factory transfer cases along with Atlas 2 and 4 speed configurations. The last piece of the system is the oil and transmission skid. Again we used 2 layers of 3/16” aluminum across the entire plate and we designed in a unique oil drain access plate that completely covers the bolts to protect them from damage but still maintains easy access for routine maintenance.

Weight has become one of the most important factors in designing aftermarket products. Even with all of the reinforcement the weight of the entire system is under 150 pounds for a 4 door JK, that is only 75 pounds more than the factory skid plates and you have immeasurably increased the underbody protection.

Our welding fixtures not only hold the over 90 pieces in the precise position but they also act as a go no go check to make sure each part was cut and formed correctly. After welding each piece is sanded, de-burred, and chipped to remove any leftover spatter from the welding process to ensure a smooth finish.

MSRP
$3,499.00 that's MSRP often times there are deals to be had.




Working it and protecting it.
