Oil pan skid

Nice strong steel, powder coat looks pretty nice too.

two man job

very heavy duty, and well made. Will take two people or use a jack to hold it up and bolt it.

A 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.

Tight 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

Strong skid that being said spend the money and get skids that protect your transmission lines which hang down just behind engine skid.

good enough

This is probably a direct fit for JK's with automatic transmissions. Rubicon Express claims it will work for manual and auto trans. I needed to do some grinding of the back edge in order to make it fit without interfering with the housing of my 2012 JKU manual. Solid piece of metal. Good peace of mind.

Rubicon Express Oil Pan Skid Plate

Rubicon Express Oil Pan Skid Plate- 2013 Jeep JK 2Door- I ordered this because it's cheaper to buy/install a skid plate than it is to drag your Jeep out of the woods after busting your oil pan on an unexpected rock or log. I read the reviews and fully expected to have to do some trimming on it even though its a "bolt on" part. Upon trying to install the skid plate I found I was going to have to do a little more than "some" trimming. I had to trim all three outer rims on the front 3 brackets of the plate. I also had to trim the left corner next to the left most bolt mount(looking at it while lying underneath). I also had to drimmel the inner bolt holes on the rear two bolt mounts. I also trimmed down the area between the rear two bolt holes to gain more clearance. After all that it fit like a glove. Just remember, that you should only trim and drimmel the skid plate,DO GRIND/TRIM THE JEEP. Cheers!
