Are you guys that are bending and smashing up stuff underneath playing in the rocks or maybe just poor tire placement?

Come to our "Parker Splash" and I can show you. Run any trail rated 3.5 or up and can guaranty under body damage get into 4" and open your wallet.

Playing in rock gardens is what got mine.

I don’t doubt at all that playing in the rocks has the potential to cause damage; banged up my ’08 JKUR somewhat underneath on the skids doing just that. I was talking more along the lines of easy to moderate trails.

Sometimes even those types of trails can be Hazardous‎ if not careful, with the key word being “careful”.

Well I've never drug the jeep over something without knowing it was going to happen. But sometimes you find yourself wheeling with a bunch of IFS Toyotas and they take a sissy bypass, and you can't help wanting to show them how it's done.

Originating poster said light offroading, not 3.5 trails. No arguement that stepping up your game requires protection of some sort.

We're going. Hope to see you there. And I bent my cheap cross member/skid too. But I play in the rocks.

OP here. Last weekend I ended up doing a little more than light trails. Ended up being rather rocky, with a ledge or two. I made it through okay and enjoyed it. I would rather put some money in protection than repairs at this point.

After seeing more and more pics in other threads of different areas/states I can see where some aftermarket skids in critical areas under the JK’s would be a good idea even on moderate trails after all.

I was thinking inside the box (my playground) instead of what others have to deal with. The wooded terrain pics kinda opened up my eyes so to speak.
