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.
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.

It's always better to protect your steering gear / components from the unknown, than not at all....

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.

Great Differential Skid
Great diff skid that protects your differential while still allowing for adequate clearance at the top to prevent hitting the trackbar at full bumpstop. I had a Riddler diff skid before this and swapped it out due to the clearance issues as it hit the trackbar at full bumpstop.

Skid Plate your Control Arms
A nice strong skid plate that will protect your expensive aftermarket control arms -- or your sorta weak stock ones. Not hard to install, really.

Protect your Control Arms
I had these installed just after getting my Jeep and after a recent trip I can tell just looking at the missing black paint that I am glad I got them.
For a reasonable amount of money you can protect your expensive aftermarket control arms -- or your sorta weak stock ones.
