Overview

Damage to the steering box can put a serious damper on a day of wheeling. That’s why Rugged Ridge offers piece of mind with this tough skid plate. Constructed of durable 3/16” thick powder coated steel with a rust resistant E-Coating, this skid plate will keep rocks and trail debris from damaging your steering box. The low profile design keeps ground clearance at a maximum. Installation uses existing mounting locations.

    Comments about Rugged Ridge Steering 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.
