Rubicon Express has everything you need to protect the vulnerable undercarriage of your 12-18 Jeep Wrangler JK with the 3.6L from front to back, with skid plates for your engine oil pan, transfer case, and fuel tank. All of the skidplates are CNC laser cut from 3/16-inch steel to withstand even the worst abuse, and are designed to mount up tight to the drivetrain to maximize ground clearance. The modular protection system allows you to add skidplates as your needs and budget allow without any concerns about compatibility.
very heavy duty, and well made. Will take two people or use a jack to hold it up and bolt it.

5.0A real beast
I discovered the need for this during my last oil change; gouges in the lower oil pan.
I was attracted to this skid plate by the no-drill, no-welding mounts. What a surprise when I found how heavy the steel is and no-welds construction.
Mounting on my 2013 JK with 6-speed manual transmission was relatively easy. However, I did have to grind away about a 1/4 inch of steel between the two mounting tabs on the rear of the plate. The slightly bowed belly of the transmission case would not allow the two mounting tabs to center over the existing bolt holes. No big deal for me as I've grown accustom to deviations with "one size fits all" parts.
All things considered, I would buy this again, and, will consider Rubicon Express for any future skid plate needs.

5.0Tight fitting heavyweight protection.
I do a lot of moderate to serious off-roading in desert conditions. After seeing some pretty deep gouges in the oil pan, I installed this skid plate. Installation went smoothly, but the very tight fit may put off some people. Because the front bolt tabs contact the casting of the upper oil pan, care must be taken to slowly tighten the bolts in an alternating pattern. I've since put some good scratches in the coating, with no damage to the pan, so it's doing the job.

Strong skid that being said spend the money and get skids that protect your transmission lines which hang down just behind engine skid.
I have a 2015 unlimited Rubsicon with 6 speed manual and this did not fit. I ended up purchasing a product manufactured by Westin Automotive Products (part #42-21015). It covers the oil pan and the manual transmission.
