Skid Plate over transfer case

I am curious about something. I have a 06 Rubicon and I took it off roadin yesterday and the skid plate over the trasfer case was caked full of mud and huge rocks that had to be pulled out by hand and some pounded out even. I myself have never seen one that isnt angled a certain way so that stuff doesnt get in through the front... just sort of boggles my mind I think more than anything.

Anyone else ever have to crawl under and dig stuff out? It was sort of funny after I started washing the mud away on the ground I found some interesting stuff LOL!!!

Yeah it happens. When you get stuck in a mod hole and spend some time spinning in the much, you bring a bunch home with you. if it's a problem you could take a peice of plastic or rubber and secure it like a sheild in front of the plate.

It has to be one of the worst designed components ever. Jeep could have easily done a better job that made a respectible skid. Well, at least it is good for the aftermarket manufacturers.

I bent the crap out of mine first time out too. The skid row engine skid was the first skid plate I bought for the TJ. I love it.
