Yep, I've done that.

I crushed one oil pan on my TJ and had to replace it. I dented the new one twice before I finally got around to installing my engine skid.


For your Jeep, I'd recommend the Skid Row. It is a fine product and will hold up well for most people. I know a few that have managed to bend one, but they were giving it serious abuse at the time, well above what it could be expected to stand up to.

I prefer the Jeep Medic, but I don't think they make one for the 4. It's thicker than the Skid Row at 1/4" vs. 3/16". I have never heard of anyone, other than myself, that has managed to bend one.

Don't ask me how those scrapes became yellow...the rock was, well a rock. No paint. And it only appeared after I got it towed to the garage (getting out of the trail was fun ) Was assuming it was like a base coat of some sort?? But I found oddness in that idea...

Thanks for all the tips bros, SKid Row it is...
