I was talking the dealer, he tried to sell me 3 skid plates:

- The Differential skid plate is $100.00
- The Steering linkage skid plate is $340.00
- The Evap Fuel Canister skid plate is $160.00

These are $CAD, not $USD, so don't worry if it's a bit high.

I'm a beginner 4x4er. I am not too wild with it, as it is a new jeep, but I have already hung it up a couple times on a dirt track I built and had to use the excavator to pull it out. Other than that, I don't do too much wild 4x4, just easy scenic trails and beaches.

Do you recommend me getting any of these 3? Any of them a waste of money right now?

Diff skid is probably a good investment, but the one you really want is the EVAP skid. The factory one is pretty flimsy and I'll be upgrading mine and adding transmission/oil pan skids as soon as my jeep funds replenish.

It's a nice surprise to hear that the 2 cheaper ones are the ones I need the most.

I would recommend doing your research on here and on google. Get the name brand from your dealers prices and see where they compare to others such as RockHard4x4 and Smitybilt.
