That's a hard one to make a judgement call on. The skidplate Mopar installed '97 to '02 was thin and not worthy, the skidplate used on 2003 and later TJs was heavier and worthwhile. I wonder which one that is? I'd call the dealer and find out if that part number is the later heavier-duty version. Do check your local dealer's discounted price, it may be very competitive if not cheaper than Quadratec's usually sky-high pricing.
