Jeep Skid Plate

Transmission Skid Plate Bracket for 2007-09 Wrangler JK, Rubicon, and Unlimited by Rancho

If you take your Jeep off road, it is very important that you have Jeep skid plates. Skid plates are also called sump guards, and they are steel plates that are attached to the undercarriage of a vehicle so that key components are not damaged when you are traveling off road. You may think it’s not worth the trouble or the money to add Jeep skid plates, but think about it: when you go off road, you are often traveling over extremely rough terrain. Your oil pan, transfer case, and gas tank are just some of the key components that can be damaged by the rough terrain. You could end up spending a lot more to fix the damage caused than you would spend to prevent it with skid plates.

Many times, skid plates are available with off road packages when you first buy a Jeep. A lot of people prefer to buy their Jeep skid plates as an upgrade using after-market parts so that they have total control over exactly what goes on their Jeep. Those who live in towns and cities often find they need to buy skid plates for their Jeeps in order to protect them from damage caused by boardwalks and speed bumps.

There are several different kinds of skid plates available for your Jeep. Axle and differential skid plates protect the vulnerable parts of your Jeep such as the pinions. Steering box skid plates are designed to protect the steering box; after all, you don’t want your steering to go out when you’re driving on a rugged mountain road! Full tank skid plates are perfect for protecting your gas tank from being punctured or scraped, which is a good way of protecting yourself. You can also get skid plates that protect your transmission and transfer case, engine, oil pan, radiator, exhaust, to cover U-bolts, control arms, and that will protect the frame.

Some parts require drilling and some do not. It’s important for you to decide what parts you need to protect your Jeep and whether you want to do any drilling. Once you decide, you can choose from a variety of styles, materials, and colors so that you can easily protect your Jeep and save money on repair costs.

Do you know how easy it is to pimp out your Jeep’s exterior? Well, it isn’t as hard as some would like to think it is. You can easily make some simple adjustments or changes that will have your Jeep looking more rugged, improve its safety, or just give it some personal flare.

Let’s start with armor and protection like rocker panels, skid plates, differential protections, roll bars, roll cages, side steps, etc. Jeep armor protects essential components of your Jeep adding safety but can also add a nice rugged statement as well. It shows you care about your Jeep and that you know your stuff when it comes to off roading.

Body lifts and mounts definitely add a noticeable statement to your Jeep. Ontop of some oversized tires, body lifts give you that clearance you need to get through the roughest terrain without tearing up your under carriage or worse. Lifts come in as small as one inch to as high as 3 inches. Then there is Suspension Lift Kits that can take your Jeep over the top and screams out “Beat that!”

Then for even more added protection, style, or maybe an upgrade there are Jeep Bumpers, Spare Tire Carriers, Hitches, and Towing accessories.

Then you have the top of your Jeep you can customize with a new top – there are hard tops, soft tops, bikini tops, windjammers and Dusters and more.

You can tint the window for an added flare as well.

There are racks and storage and winches and recovery gear that can all add your own personal touch to your Jeep. Then there are the lights! Jeep lights have always kind of made their own statement. In the dark of the night when you see headlights coming your way you can spot a Jeep out of the crowd in an instant. You can take that distinguishing factor and go the extra mile with a lighting bar with auxiliary lights, or add some fun lighting covers.

You can give your Jeep a subtle change or an extreme makeover, show your style, your personality, the love of your Jeep by pimping out your Jeep’s exterior.
