These skid plates help protect various parts of your driveline, so you won't be left stranded off-road by an unfortunate experience. Skid plate is finished in semi gloss black powder coat. Features: 3/16 thick steel, prevents damage to the underside of engine, and bolt-on installation-attaches in 3 locations.
Modification needed with rubicon express long arms
If you have a rubicon express long arm kit, or a belly pan that is not flat all the way across including brackets, this won’t work. It needs to bolt right where the control arm brackets bolt to center section. My drive shaft hits the skid and I have it as far to opposing side as I can get it. Driveshaft hits skid when flexed. I have to grind a 4” section on skid to see if I can get it to clear. Other than that, it’s great.

A must have skid plate
This is the 2nd Skid Row skid plate that I purchased. The first one was supposedly list by a shop while work was bring done. Way better then factory

Easy install for "peace of mind"
Although the photos on the provided installation instructions are not very clear, the installation was easy. The plate feels heavy duty enough to provide adequate protection to previously exposed oil pan/transmission. I now have a lot more peace of mind when on the trails.

expensive but you get what you pay for
i think you can set whole jeep on skidplate and gastank would still be fine

A bit on the light side
Product fit well but just does not seem heavy duty enough. I would recommend but reserve the right to change my mind after my annual rubicon trip this summer.

Very easy install.
This thing went in easier than any mod I have done to date. I am the VP of pv4wd.com and I've done many upgrades on my TJ. Everything from adding fog lights to the front bumper to welding the rear spider gears and fabricating my rear bumper.I was seeking a quick, painless way of getting some armor under my engine and transmission, after taking a hit next to the oil drain plug. Thankfully it doesn't leak, so I took the warning and bought this upgrade.I used two box-end wrenches for the mounts and a crescent wrench with electric impact for the lower control arm bolt.I had just had my wisdom teeth out a couple days prior (kinda medicated and couldn't lift or bend at strange angles like a lot of jeep work requires) and I installed this armor by myself without any issue.If you're new to upgrades and modding your rig, but want to get some decent armor under your engine and transmission, this skid is for you.Make sure you use anti-seize on your bolts or taking it off in the future for drivetrain work will be a big pain in the butt!
does the Skid Row Off Road | Part Number: SFKJP-5006 sway bar skid plate fit the 2015 jeep rubicon without cutting lower portion of cross member?

Thanks for the inquiry steve, the Skid Row Off Road Sway Bar Disconnect Skid Plate part # SFKJP-5006 as the instructions say no drilling or cutting required.
from ft worth tx on
Fits 2007 to 2015 Wrangler, Rubicon and Unlimited
2 and 4-door models
Does not fit 2012-2015 newer JKs
I cut and pasted the above from this product's description.
As you can see, it starts out by stating that it fit's '07-'15 JKs, but finishes up by stating that it does NOT fit '12-'15 JKs
So forgetting about asking WHY someone would actually switch off their brain and write conflicting information in the same field, all I'm gonna ask is this:
Will this product fit the 2015 Wrangler JKU?

Hello Kevin, sorry for the conflicting info. The Skid Row Off Road Evap Canister Guard part# SFKJP-5007 fits the 2007-2011 jk. This will not fit your vehicle. Thank you for your inquiry.

Will this skid plate work with a Smittybilt SRC Stinger for JK?
Chase from Burlington, NC on
Yes the Body Armor 4x4 Front Skid Plate should work with a Smittybilt bumper. Hope this helps!
