dropped the skid PLATE out of my '10 today after getting another reminder about the recall to swap it with a skid BAR. It did have a nice rock collection in it, but nothing dangerous looking. It's also got some very healthy dents and gouges on the forward lip, where the trans would be most likely to take a hit if it wasn't there...

based on the hit the plate has taken for the tranny, I won't be going to the dealer looking for a skid bar. Having a 4 door, I drag that plate over all sorts of stuff on the trail. Thinking the risk of fire is probably statistically much smaller than the risk of putting a rock through the bell housing.

got me thinking though looking at it... either stuff the gap full of something non-flammable, like fiberglass, to keep the brush out in the first place, or maybe weld an additional plate that angles upwards from the front lip, to deflect all that junk from going up in there.

there's also a malleable heat shield right above the cat. could add more heat shield to come down in between the cat and the gap above the skid plate. sort of another way to skin a cat, pun intended

I checked "Window Sticker" and it shows both the transfer case and fuel tank skid plates are installed on the Rubicon. It's still winter here In Buffalo (sort of ), so I'll check out the plates when I have it into the dealers in a few days for service.

I have a bulld sheet but it only shows interior/electronic items.

Yeah, well, good luck with that and if you know anyone with a 2010 or older, tell them to stay away as well, or they'll liable to have their's removed before they're able to say...."missing skid plate"....

I understand that this doesn't pertain to 08 jk's but I recently bought my first wrangler used. 08 Sahara. This thread stressed me out though since I was a new owner with little knowledge.

I def have all 3 skids on mine. Phew!

After reading this, I looked under Izzy (my Gecko) to see how many plates she has, and there is just one. Do I take her back to the dealer? Do they put the others on? or...?

DON'T FREAK OUT

I have reported this thread as out dated today.

After reading through much if the thread I believe this was an issue in pre-2011 models. Then the plates were replaced with skid bars. It's my understanding that was to prevent a possible fire hazard if crap got stuck between the old style plate. I feel the thread should be shut down because no one is buying a new 2010 any more, and it's freaking out new Jeep buyers.

I have a 2013 and this thread was a good education. It led me to put on a set of Rock Hard skids that I am sure will be paid back many times over the life of the rig as compared to the mickey mouse factory skids.

Here is the official blurb I got from Chrysler Canada. Initially, the dealer gave us three run arounds until settling at a solution that was passable (he gave me one from a 2011). We have a 2012 Rubi, automatic.

"
Thank you for your return email of February 25, 2013, regarding the skid
plates for your 2012 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon VIN: xxxx

After careful review of your file, it has been determined that the
manual transmission has three skid plates as shown in the illustration
on the website, so it is accurate. It is the automatic transmission
that has the bar vs. skid plate under the transmission. Please note
that your vehicle has the automatic transmission.

We appreciate the time you took to bring this website issue to our
attention. Your message will be forwarded to the appropriate individuals
for investigation and clarification.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write and for giving us the
opportunity to review this matter with you."

It appears that Kate Owen (official rep) has no clue either.

Initially she told me to contact the dealer for body options. A case of "another stupid email, I'll give 'em the standard politically correct jargon crap set form."

I don't think this is still an issue

This is a 2012 shown below. The 2013 should be the same. It's my understanding that at least up to 2010 the skid plates were a bit different (better with more coverage). Then they went through a recall because leaves and stuff trapped in them created some fires. I think the 2007-2010 would be similar after the recall, but that's a guess.

What your looking for is the
  1. Crossmember
  2. Transfer Case Skid
  3. Gas Tank Skid
