Oil Pan

OK i haven't see anything like this on here, however after doing some off-roading i scratched a little on some rocks. So i got under the vechile after i got home to see how bad i scratch the skid plates, and i notice that was no skit plate directly covering the oil pan. Is the oil pan just made out of some thicker gauge metal, not that this is a problem currently, but if i were to come off a rock, suppose there is another rock that is slightly pointy, then it may puncture or dent the pan. Please someone advise me if they notice the same thing. 2007 4door Rubicon manual trans.
If this is suppost to be like this, then i am defiantly manufacturing something to put there, i DON"T WANT TO TAKE ANY CHANCES

Yep, that's standard. Absolutely no protection whatsoever for the lifeblood of your Jeep. The pan is a pan nothing special and will rip open like a sardine can on the right (wrong) rock.

Check out the Skid Row skid plate. That's what I did. There may be others out there as well.
