Savvy Under Armor

I've look at most of the options out there (high clearance skids) and have decided to go with Savvy. I know I can run the transfer case skid. During my frame replacement earlier this year, I've installed a 1 1/4" body lift, Novak cable shifter and Brown Dog 1" mounts. My question to those who actually run the Savvy Under Armour - Can I use their front engine tranny skid with the Brown Dog 1" mounts? Or will I need to order up standard height one's and use their spacer blocks. Would there be a reasonable way to mount the front plate without heavy fabrication.?

You will have to order standard height mounts and use their 1" blocks.

Also note that you'll have to do a little clearancing to the BD mounts for it all to sit flush with no contact anywhere. Not a big deal at all but something I remember from working on a Jeep that went that route.

Personally, I run their "modular" setup with the crossmember and t-case skid and use a separate oil pan skid to protect it. I have yet to have a reason to use a full engine skid. Just another option.

Recommendations on a (brand) oil pan skid?

I've always used the cheap Teraflex skids that you can get on eBay for $25. I've mangled one but the oil pan remains fine....I just bought another one. They do a surprisingly good job and are cheap enough to be considered disposable.

I'm not saying that's an equal replacement for a full engine skid because it's not. I've just never needed a full engine skid and I don't baby my Jeep on the trails.

I just ordered one yesterday from the Teraflex.biz website, they have them in stock on the website and are listed as 97-02 TJ's with the AX15. Other models may work, not sure though.

Ahh... Oil pan skid plate. I thought it was a transmission skid. $25 is still a great price

It fit my 2002 with NV3550 fine. Good stuff. I landed right on it and only got a scratch.
