Depends on your style of wheeling, I'd do a steering box skid toospringr said:Besides the factory skids what are the minimum skids needed? I am planning on ACE rocker guards, steering skid and oil pan skid. What else?
Jerry, will the 00-01 factory skid fit an earlier model (99) TJ? You never know what you might come across at the local junkyard!Jerry Bransford said:Oil pan protection is the #1 priority, the gas tank is the #1 with early TJs having inadeqate protection for the gas tank. What year TJ do you have? I don't recall exactly when the factory went to an adequate skidplate for the gas tank, sometime in the 2000-2001 timeframe or so.
The gas tank skids are a direct swap. I swapped my 98 for an 03-06 and it was no problem at all. Bolted right upIslandTJ said:I think the 2003+ models have the stouter tank skid. What lift and tire size are you running or planning on?
Gas skids should be compatible throughout the 97-06 period, at least I think... The 00-01 skid still maintains the flimsy design that I used to run.
Depends on what you're looking for. Look at Under Cover Fab for some awesome skids that protect both the engine and transmission. I believe their engine skid will bolt up to your existing transfercase skid plate and also their new ones if you ever decide to do a tummy tuck.Any reccommendations on where to get oil pan, auto trans and steering box skids? Mine is an 03 Wrangler. All stock. I may put a 2"BB lift on by next summer.
