Lets see your front skid plates and where you got them!
 
Would like to replace the factory plastic front skid plate. Lets see what you've got!

It's not a skid plate. It's called an Air Dam.

And it's plastic.

Whatever you're smoking, I want some. Although, I don't smoke.

here is our skidplate on our 12'

only good reason to have it is to protect the electronic disconnect sway bar motor if you have a rubicon.

I replaced the "-1 Air Dam of Limited Utility" with a Rugged Ridge skid plate I picked up from Amazon and a custom 1/8' steel filler plate I had a local sheet metal shop make for me to fill the gap between the skid plate and the bumper.

Anyone else have any info on this thread pictures suggestions? I am looking at ordering all available skids I really want to do Rugged Ridge but I don’t think they make all the skids. Looking for front skid under bumper, engine oil pan, transmission, evap, control arms, muffler skids. The gas tank skid seems pretty good but might replace it at a later date. To me it seems the location of the loop Chrysler put in the exhaust is begging to get smashed as it hangs low.
