- 1/4" 6061 Aluminum for skid plates, 3/16" zinc plated steel for bracketry
- Designed from factory CAD files for great and precise fit.
- CNC laser cut and CNC formed using custom rolled dies for high strength and a unique look.
- All bolts under skid plate are countersunk for absolutely smooth bottom
- All nuts are pressed into steel brackets for easy, one tool removal
- Modular design lets you take off only one section for vehicle servicing
- Protects Oil Pan, Transmission Pan, Gas Tank, Front Exhaust and Transfer Case
- No removal of gas tank needed, simply bolt in place
- Works best with Artec JK Heavy Duty Crossmembers
- Clearanced near rear drive yoke shaft to prevent rubbing
- NOTE - Loop delete needed if using long arm HD crossmember with link mounts. A small amount of trimming will be required on the factory gas tank skid plate. May not work with aftermarket Evap Canister Skid Plates, relocation is suggested. May not be compatible or may need to be modified to work with Aftermarket Suspensions that use a proprietary crossmember.
**Transmission Cooler lines may need to be removed from clip and tied up slightly
IF USING WITH MANUAL TRANSMISSION FOR 2012-2017 JK MODEL YEARS, YOU WILL NEED PART JK1010-11A WHICH IS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE SEPARATELY.
*Using the factory crossmember, some holes must use factory hardware which is not countersunk. For a completely smooth bottom, use Artec HD Crossmembers.
