The aluminum stuff is only a few more lbs. than stock......but pricey.
My UCF skids are on a big brown truck heading north!!!

Thanks for the responses as JP said I Was thinking along the lines of a tranny skid, engine skid, steering box, diff covers, CA skids, gas tank skid, oil pan etc. maybe even one of those nifty driveshaft skids. I havent had one in my hand but theyre made from thicker steel and I assumed they were heavy as hell. So I figured it would help lower the COG a bit
Course you have to pay an arm and leg lol. But then again I dont want to be that guy that has 4 quarts of oil on a rock somewhere in the desert waiting for a tow!

|Jp90Talon||Well I have a full under body armor kit from Rokmen (gas tank, belly up, and engine/tranny skid) sitting in my living room waiting to go on. The belly up and gas tank skid are much heavier than the stockers since they are made from thick steel. I would assume that adding this extra weight to the underbody would help lower the center of gravity. Add to that beefier control arms, steering, and so on, I can imagine it would help lower the center of gravity quite a bit. But then again Im still quite new to all this. What I can say is that I just put my hard top on my LJ and that alone makes it feel much more top heavy in turns than when I had just the soft top.|

full skid plate weight
Hey what consists of a full set of skid plates under a 2 door Jeep. And how* about *much would they weight? I'm wondering how much of an effect it would have on COG
