Perhaps an engine skid might work? I'm at work so I can't go out to my jeep and see which pipe you're talking about at the moment.

Some companies make an oil pan skid that extends up to protect the exhaust as well. I think skidrow makes one like that.

The only exhaust pipe that I can think of would be the header but that runs down the left side of the oil pan. Some pictures would help out.

Wait .... Are you sure those "bash marks" are not there from the factory?
There are dents to clear some of the suspension components.

Edit: at least on the JK

I've seen people post pics of those "factory dents" thinking they caused them.

Carry on :P

I have a full set of River Raider & they cover the exhaust at the front, I thought I had a pic' but it was the middle not the front. I'll post one later if I get a chance.
You may have to call them I just looked & can't find one on their site for a '98

I don't think they make one for a TJ. They make a bunch more products for the JK's than they do TJ's.

Just went out and took 2 pictures of mine. You can see the exhaust he's talking about.

Yes ,those are the pipes Im talking about.They do cover the pipe pretty well.I bet another piece of metal could be added but that seems like it would do the trick.Thanks for all the help.Its appreciated.

This is from there web site.It evens mentions the exh pipe.Thanks again!


Our engine/transmission skid plates are available for all 1997-2006 Jeep TJ Wranglers. They are designed to provide complete coverage for your vulnerable engine oil pan, transmission, AND the front portion of your exhaust system. Unlike some of our competitors, you don't need to buy two different skid plates to get less coverage. One easily installed skid plate provides the complete protection you need to feel confident while on the trail.
