I was giving my '11 Wrangler Sport a good cleaning, inside and out, and when I pulled the drain plugs, I noticed that some of them have metal underneath them. Is there any danger in pulling all of these to let some excess water drain out after washing it? It wont harm anything, correct? Thank you.

Why would it? That's what they're are for. Assuming that's aluminum shielding you see.
Both my Tj and Jk had the plugs removed and never out back in.

Just leave em out. It's a jeep. The water needs somewhere to go.
You know, i always wondered why the drain plugs are shoved up under the carpet so far. You'd think they coulda put a flap in the carpet there or something.
Im fairly sure most of that aluminum underneath is to keep water from splashing in when you drive without drain plugs. But there is a drain plug directly over your fuel tank on the passenger side. I would advise not drilling holes through the fuel tank. Other than that, you're fine.
