Does anyone know to remove factory skid plates 05 hemi WK

I went wheeling today and took a pretty rocky trail and ended up banging my skid plates pretty good, i want to pull them down so i can hammer them straight and make sure i didnt screw up my drive-train. So, does anyone know how to remove the factory skid plates below the front differential and transfer case for a 2005 hemi grand cherokee with quadra drive 2. I dont want to start removing them before i know what im getting into. Thank You.

the front skid plate only has 4 bolts - one at each corner. the front 2 are in a key way shaped hole so they only have to be loosened. remove the back 2 bolts and slide the skid forward. be care full. they are heavier than they look.

easy to break

Might want to use some penetrating oil on them first. I broke 2 of them off and had to drill out.

Got em off, much easier than i anticipated. The one under the front diff still has a few mm before it touches, but the one under the transfer case was touching. I removed it and my vibrations went away. Now to hit the scrap yard and get a newish one to replace it. I tried bending it back but it was a no go.

Check out the bracket to the 4xguard front skid. That bent back easy with a vise and a BFH. But im not so happy about the fatty gap between the sway bar and the bushing.
