2013 4dr Sport Factory Skid Plates?

Hey All,

Have a 2013 Sport 4dr and am looking into adding some armour. Doing my research on past threads show a lot of people saying to skid the Evap Pan, but when I poke my head under there, it looks like the factory already has done that for me, as well as the normal T-case and fuel tank, even the oil pan looks beefed up compared to my old TJ.
So my question is, what skid plates does my 2013 Sport 4dr have? I can't find a thread that specifics and lists the factory supplied plates on the Sport Model. If this thread does exist, feel free to link me to it.
It has the trailer tow package and the LSD in the back if that changes anything.

All the Best

Mack

A stock JK (new, don't know about the 2007-2011) has a gas tank skid, an EVAP skid (not super stout) and a transfer case skid...it also has a transmission crossmember which protects (not very well) the body of the transmission, but not a very vulnerable line that is completely exposed underneath. The oil pan has no skids. I'd recommend the EVO Protek skids. They are reasonably priced, and protect the vulnerable parts of a JK, the oil pan, the transmission, and the exhaust loops.

EVO Manufacturing JK 2012, Full Protek Skid System

(the pics show it in red, but thats just for illustration purposes, the customer skids are black.)

Okay perfect, exactly what I was wondering. Is that "vulnerable line" only for auto? I have the manual tranny. I'm not doing any rock crawling, but sharp sticks and a few smaller boulder gardens are on the backroad access I drive, last thing I want is to poke a hole in the pan.

The evap skid cover is about at thick as a coke can. I replaced it. I have a local welder that makes them, bumpers and tire carriers.

Im honestly not sure where that line is on a manual (or if its there at all), but I do know that the protek skids are made for both manual and autos. The link I provided above asks you for the transmission you have on your rig.

My guy installed a Rock Hard Evap relocation kit On my 13. It is totally out of harms way now.
