^^Great info, thanks! I don't encounter a lot of rocks in Florida but I'd like to be better prepared for some upcoming trips planned.

Hello all. Newbie.
something else I don't see mentioned and must be considered is that the Unlimited 4 dr. weighs more than the 2 dr. off the lot and has the same engine rating etc.

My factory springs on the 09 Rub Unltd. collapsed on the way to The Racetrack in Death Valley. I was sitting on the bumpstops. Even after the tent and camp gear were unloaded. Irt was the first outing with both Fr. and Rear Rockhard 4X4 full width bumpers ,Warn Powerplant winch and ARB rooftop Tent plus camp gear,people,dogs.....

The order of importance of which bits of armor to attach to my Jeep was determined by observing the first things that got whacked the first few times I went wheeling when my Jeep was stock.

The very first things that got bashed RIGHT AWAY (and over and over again) were the front lower control arm mounts. Next up was the front diff. Next was the rear shock mounts and lower rear control arm mounts, then the rear diff.

For me anyway, this is the order of importance:

1. Front control arm skids (Skid Row)
2. HD diff covers (Riddler)
3. Rear control arm skids with integrated shock mounts (Synergy)

4. Rear differential rock slider (AEV)
5. Oil pan (Rancho)
6. Evap skid (Rusty's Off Road)
7. Mopar Rubicon Rock Rails

Bringing back an old thread here but are the Barricade enhanced rock rails available yet to get? Still seeing pre-order only at most places. Anyone already have a set installed?

The stuff with the least ground clearance.......Your list makes sense.
