Question Weight of the skidplates?

What is the weight of both of the skidplates on a manual wrangler?

I would assume you mean the TC case skid and the gas tank skid. I've never had the gas tank skid off, but I guess the TC skid to be 20-30lbs.

Thanks. losing 20-30 pounds would definitely help. I use my Wrangler primarily for dune running so skid plates aren't really needed.

I do everything I can to lose unnecessary weight. I've already removed the rear seat. We have another Jeep in case we need more room (hint: it's a Liberty).

The TC one is the only thing holding your driveline in, so you may want to keep that one...

Huh? The skid protects it, but doesn't hold anything in. I've had mine off to change the fluid.

JK manuals have a separate transmission mount? I guess that's what i get for venturing outside the TJ section... our tranny and transfer case are supported entirely by the TC skid plate.

I'm thinking the same is true for JKs..
