Skid plate opinions...

Here's the deal...I finally bought myself a "real" jeep. I had been driving a '96 ZJ and I decided to upgrade cause it frankly was cursed. Any who, I purchased an '04 LJ and have completely caught the jeep bug... Well I was wheeling it up at pea**** flats(I am stationed in Hawaii) and "tapped" the transfer case skid plate. It is now gently touching the transfer case. Does anyone have an opinion(lol what jeeper doesent) on what brand or brands I should procure to up-armor my baby. I am not technically savvy enough to build my own.

Undercover Fab I have there ultra slim. Amazing price and works extremely well, I have only rubbed it once maybe twice. ( I was trying to hit it -- extremely hard to do)

You'll most likely hear alot of people recommend savvy products, but i think you need to have a 2003+ TJ with auto transmission. This is nice because it's very light weight and nearly flat against the frame rails. Savvy makes a good product, i own a bunch of their other armor.

Under Armor 2003+ Auto Transmission


Personally I went with the Rokmen tummy tuck, It's made of steel but not extraordinarily heavy. I've given it a beating and it's in good shape. Of course you'll get large scratches and gouges going over the rocks with any skid, and if you want to avoid rust you should get down there with some spray paint and cover the bare metal ( as you should with any steel skid )

Rokmen Gear Up....Rok On

Don't know much about the Clayton skids. I Have The UFC skid and I couldn't be happier. No more digging into dirt piles for me.
