Manufactured from 3/16 inch steel plate, this skid plate for the Jeep JK is designed to protect the front area of the Jeep including the vulnerable and expensive electronic sway bar disconnect offered on the Rubicon model. Easy bolt on installation and can be installed with the Body Armor bumper or stock bumper. Black Powder coat finish.
I bought this to replace the plastic valance under the front bumper to actually protect the electronic sway bar disconnect on my Rubi and it does that perfectly. It has held up to hits & scrapes going forward and reversing off obstacles without much more than a few scratches. My only issue with it was I needed a second pair of hands to help install it, so I ended up using a hydraulic jack to hold it in place while I bolted it on. Beyond that I can't fault this item in any way so far.
I have their bumper on my '08 Wranger Rubicon. This fixed the freeway speed wind buffeting and hood rise due to wind. Doubles as a front air dam.
The JK comes with a flimsy plastic front "skid plate" that will not protect from any damage, except bugs. The Off Road 4x4 skid plate installed easy with only one bolt hole to drill, the passenger side had an elongated slot in place that allows adjustment, it looks good and protects well and came with all needed hardware.
Q: Will this work with a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon with a Smittybilt SRC Front Stinger? Answer this question
