TJ Oil Pan Skid Plate Suggestions

I crushed my oil pan last time I went wheelin. Lucky enough I was able to limp home and it was not fun swapping it out. Just looking for suggestions on oil pan skidplates for a 4.0L. I'm leaning towards this Skid Row Offroad plate. Just wanted to see what my options are besides what 4wd or Quadratech offer. I'm Surprised Poison Spyder Customs doesn't have anything.

I am way more relaxed in the rocks since getting my Skidrow skid. Easy install too.

Does your skid plate work with the stock Rubicon skid plates? Also does it require any body or engine lift?

Thanks

It does work with the stock transfer case skid. No MML or BL required.

Thanks,

Landed on mine as well, only thing I want to ensure is the exhaust is covered as well. I do know some just cover the oil pan leaving your exhaust that wraps the oil pan open

The UCF engine/transmission skid bolts into the stock transfer case skid pretty well. I had a few gripes but overall I'm happy with it. It is not mated to the UCF UHC skid. Besides protecting the engine trans and exhaust well, it greatly helps by creating a ramp surface to skid across the belly instead of getting caught on the lip of the skid. No more ''shovel'' effect either. In other threads I have lots of pictures of the skid on my Jeep with the stock '03-'06 transfer case skid.

That UFC looks pretty nice.
I installed a Skid Row on my 03 TJ last spring and am happy with it and feel much more secure. It is the same one you would need. You do have to drill three holes and reverse your lower frame side control arm bolt if needed,

Thanks,
Do you have any knowledge how your skid will work with an AEV/Nth TT for the manual trans? Unfortunately AEV only sells a trans skid that works with an auto, so I'm left trying to find something that matches up halfway decent.

That style doesn't allow easy compatibility if a tummy tuck is in the future.

It (Skid Row) actually does, I'm running a Skid Row engine skid that mated easily to Matt's 0.25" UCF transfer case skid .
