    Default What is your Skid Plate Priority?

    Everyone make your personal skid plate priority list. Say you could only buy one at a time, what order would they be in?

    I bought mine from Jeep medic. You saw what it did, it just raised everything up a n inch or two, which is a good thing on my jeep since it has a longer wheel base.

    Teraflex belly up skid - ink on quadratec

    Found this online:

    There are of course several ways to fix this problem, one of which is getting a tcase skid that trims up the "beergut" of your Jeep by raising the tcase up more between the frame rails. There are many tcase skids on the market:

    * Teraflex "Belly-Up" Skid plate
    * Rubicon Express raised skid
    * Nth Degree Mobility's flat skid
    * 33 Engineering's High Clearance Skid plate
    * Fabricate your own

    I guess you could always look at it as: Armor up everything which is not already armored with stock armor first, then it would go:

    dif guards
    lca skids
    rock sliders
    steering box

    then replace current stock armor if needed:

    Belly up
    Engine
    gas tank
    radiator

    I would drop the body mount bracket skids, they are expensive as heck and you can prob fab your own with a little metal bending.

    I liked Ryan's cause it went from the belly pan all the way forward.

    Mine was the engine skid bolted to the belly up. I just reversed the bolts because I did not like the nuts being left vulnerable below the skids.
