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.

not as easy to install as they say
it takes toe to install this plate would be nice if you could order this with out the logo looks like it could be a weak area if it gets hit

Great skid plate, fast and easy install.
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.

Nice protective part - However...
This offers much better protection for the front of your Jeep than the OEM plastic. Nice powder coated finish. Easy to install. Be aware that there are 2 1/2" letters (Body Armor 4X4)cut into the front of it. I thought this may be the case by looking at the pictures so I call to check before ordering. The person at 4 Wheel Parts was very helpful but did not know so they gave me the number for the manufacturer. When I call they assured me it did not have the lettering so I ordered it. When it arrived I found that it actually DOSE have the logo and it is very visible when installed. This is a nice product if you don't mind the large advertisement.

Fits Great and Looks Good
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.
Will this work with a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon with a Smittybilt SRC Front Stinger?

Yes the Body Armor 4x4 Front Skid Plate should work with a Smittybilt bumper. Hope this helps!

I just got the body armor bumper for my 2013 Jeep JK unlimited sport. (Part Number: B/AJK-19532). Is this skid plate straight bolt on or do you need to do some drilling?
Francis from Orange, CA on
Thanks for the inquiry Francis, the Body Armor 4x4 Front Skid Plate part # B/AJK-5123 these are compatible with each other and is a direct bolt on application.

Will this skid plate work with a Poison Spyder JK Brawler MID Front Bumper with Brawler Bar? a bit more of a queston about the bumper. does it roll around the bottom of the frame cross member?
P.S. Winnipeg needs a store ;-)
I have this skid and am looking at that bumper.
