Jeep Armor Thread!
 
I want to compile a master list of the most important JEEP ARMOR from the single most important down.

Who want's to get us started?

The armor that goes around your wallet so you don't spend all your money on your Jeep.

Most important is an oil pan/trans skid, then rockers, front diff, LCA skids.

Steering box skid,front lca skids, x2 on others already mentioned

Steering box skid is a waste IMHO.

I will pocket the $45 and slow down on the trail. :whistling:
I see no reason to barrel headlong into any obstacle fast enough to damage my steering box.

To each his own. Quite a few people buy and sell them, just not me.

You can argue most skids aren't needed if you slow down...

We have lots of rocks where I jeep so more armor the better

Oil pan, tranferscase and fuel tank can get dragged at the slowest of crawls. I would argue they are needed when wheeling at any speed.

Rock sliders keep your tub safe. Even corner armor can save you.

When you come upon an obstacle that is tall enough to damage your steering box you can turn the tire to strike the obstacle first. You don't have to smack your steering box into the obstacle.

Not looking for a schooling on skids. Either lift the jeep or skid it up.

Hendog 05-13-2011 11:47 PM

Steering box skid is pointless for me. But I may not wheel the same way you do.

SilverTJMike 05-13-2011 11:52 PM

Rocks move, tires slip, things drop down, it was cheap. I have on the other hand never hit my oil pan skid, go figure...
