BTW: Some of the guys dropped out at the last minute so the trip got cancelled this week, need to plan this again sometime next month.

Skid Plates - Sliders

did a quick total in my head, for the 3 skids, close to 1k, plus or minus a bit. They can be put on with hand tools but it is nice to have the jeep lifted so you have more room to work.



Your evap:

Highly suggest if you start rock crawling down these canyons you get a beefier skid or relocate it. If you google jeep evap canister relocation, you will find some articles on how people have relocated them over the rear axle with items out your local home imporovement store. Companies do make kits to do this but I've heard it can be done cheaper with hardware stor parts.

I went this route:

Jeep Evap Skid | Jeep Evap Protection | Jeep Evap Armor | Poison Spyder Customs

And yes I have hit it, even lifted and armored like I am and the skid save my bacon. Good insurance.

Again, not something that has to be done now but definitely for future consideration.

Think I mentioned we have people go down last chance canyon in stock form with stock skids and have had no problems. The above listed items are just good insurance.
