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.
I order the skid plate because I already owned Rugged Ridge Front Bumper.
Installation can be pain for 1 person (much easier with a second set of helping hand). However, depend on the after market fog light brand you would need minor trim the fog light case house (should be fine if you keep OEM Fog Light), I have to trim my LED case housing in order for the skid plate fit in place. Everything fit tightly so there is no more for misalignment between the bumper and the skid plate.

Heavy duty, seems like it will hold up off road very well.

Great skid plate
The skid plate held up great. I had to make a few modifications becuase my trac bar was rubbing the skid plate. But that wasn't their fault so I give it 5 stars. I had this on my jeep and took it to the rubicon trial and held up great, my tank doesn't have any dents.
