LOL. It's more than just the skid plate dude. You can find those on Craigslist for $20

Did you dent the pan? Did you damage the transmission somehow? You probably bent your axle and many other things if you hit the curb that high at 35mph. That skid is pretty bad, I imagine if you hit that hard you damaged something else.

Another thing, how tall was this curb? I don't see how this possibly could have happened from any "curb".

Yup, hopefully he didn't crack the transmission case.

A front end alighnment is definately in order.

You can get a new trans pan from the dealer for $19.89 for the 42rle trans.... And hitting a curb at 35mph it is a good chance you did bend the axle, but that's what insurance is all about so you better claim this buddy....

And delete the cell phone video of you and your buddy racing BEFORE you file the claim. God help you if it's on the facetubes or whatever else people nowadays use to broadcast their every thought and action...

IF, it happened the way you said then make a police report. If it is less than $1000 then you can make your own report (In Texas) and it is called a Blue Form. If it is more than $1000 you actually need a CR-3 report which is generated by law enforcement.

You may be able to get away with nothing going on your driving record if it is done as an FSGI (failed to stop and give information) report. If your insurance is as high as my sons then your parents may have a $1000 deductable on your jeep.

Looks like you have some decisions to make.

Damn you smacked that curb pretty good. I'd worry less about that skid and more about your pan. Remove the skid and bang it back in shape with a BFH. After the plate is off you'll be able to see what's going on with the pan. At the minimum you'll want to remove the pan and check it inside/outside/rim for cracks or dents. If it was me i'd replace the pan even if it looks good but either way put a new gasket on. I'd also check the tranny housing and mount for damage.

And stop driving like a highschool kid even though you are one

I don't think this is really Chadwick caliber material.. Unless of course it turns out he was doing something he really shouldn't have, like racing or road rage, then I'd say it's close

That is not a total indication that there is not something at issue. The whole front end is going to need to be checked if you went over a curb at 35.

the skid plate is the least of your worries...its there to take a hit and protect. Replace or straighten it . Get your jeep checked out before you drive it anymore....Doesnt seem like you have the skills to procede without assistance from soemone who can actually see the vehicle.

could be better, or not. im not familiar enough with the 42rle to know.
draining the fluid and removing the pan would give you a good indication of the possible damage.

your little auto trans skid plate is bent though, might be able to bend that back, maybe not. either way, a god excuse to upgrade.
How did you post the photo without the link?

from photobucket, just copy and paste the IMG Code into your reply. It will create the code that will put the picture inline with the text.

Good luck, man. I hope for your sake it just broke the seal of the gasket.

i did the same thing you did to put it in as a link, however instead of using the "link" button, i used the "image" button. it is the second button from the end of the little row.

It's the skid plate for the tranny (auto). The fluid is tranny fluid, leaking from the cracked pan. I think the front is to the right of the pic,

Well Jeep tj stock comes with a transmission skid plate so if you bottom out offroading you wont destroy the transmission. The transmission is is located underneath the middle of the jeep. The liquid is the transmission fluid. What I hit bent the skid plate and punctures the transmission oil pan. I Hope that helps.
