Ljcrawler05 Basically what I'd recommend is going to savvy offroad's website and have a field day! Nah, I'd look into Undercover fab, Savvy, Rokmen etc. and see which one fits your needs. I personally went with savvy, but the brand is really up to you. Do you want steel, aluminum, options between the two?... decide how many extra parts each will require (body lift, sye/cv driveshaft, mml, adjustable control arms)... figure out your price range and pick and choose what you can afford and handle. If you want something out of your price range, save a little longer if possible definitely found that out already. The information is out there as far as protecting your rig just explore...

savvyoffroad.com
rokmen.com
undercoverfab.com
metalcloak.com (not listed above, but their quality is top notch, I have their control arms under my rig)

IslandTJ I would also seriously look at rocker panel skids, I am amazed at how much I use mine as a pivot point for the Jeep.

My Skid Row gas tank skid has taken a beating...wipe it off and rattle can good to go.
Steering box skid is cheap considering what will happen if you break the pump.
My belly pan came with my LA lift....beefy 3/8 steel...I need an oil pan skid already dented it. Probly lucky as hell I didn't puncture it.

As to Brand....just compare what size material they use to make it. Most use the same size material. Stay away from those that use thinner.

techflork Get an undercover Fab engine skid, it's beefy and has saved my oil pan and probably the exhaust pipe a number of times. Then the steering box skid, even if you don't need it, it's only 50 bucks. Tummy tuck is my last mod with skids, but that will only happen once I get a lift.

PStov98TJ Well going with a TT skid would be a good start. More ground clearance and therefore more protection. But you'll need an sye/cv with it.

tallzdatank I'd go with oil pan and steering box skids as well as a fuel tank plate. those are about all I would think most people really could ever need.
