Comments about Rugged RidgeSteering Box Skid Plate:

This skid plate was a breeze to install. The entire installation took less than 5 minutes. Any TJ driver should be worried about protection for the steering box. I am no longer worried after installing this little beast. It performs very well and looks great.
