Adding skid plates to 2015 Overland

The only regret I have about my Jeep is that I didn't get ORA2 for it... I'd like to remedy that a little by adding skid plates to my Overland. Any caveats? If someone has done this and/or has the correct part numbers and place to order them (and get them installed!) that'd be great. Thanks!

Getting ready for some off-road fun and winter weather.

Re: Adding skid plates to 2015 Overland

Here is the best that I found. 479.00 and install them yourself. Very Easy. Save yourself 530 bucks for install. Just make sure when you install the fuel tanks that you have a 1/4 tank of fuel, less weight the better. And have a friend help. I Always look to ebay first for mopar parts and accessories.

Thanks for posting those great prices! It's too bad they don't ship to Canada?

Thanks for the links but I've got the diesel so I need to look up the parts for that.

Re: Adding skid plates to 2015 Overland

If memory serves those are the correct numbers, and all you do for the CRD is remove a damper. I posted the part #s here, before.

Re: Adding skid plates to 2015 Overland

How hard is this install job? I'm not experienced with auto repair but I can turn a wrench. Would I need ramps for the job? A floor jack? (More tools!) Any good walk throughs so I can see it being done?

It is a straightforward and easy 1-person job. No soecial tools needed.

No matter how you lift it, never ever crawl underneath without some kind of support - meaning, if for example you use a floor jack then also use some jack stands or similar as a back-up in case the floor jack loses hydraulic pressure or otherwise lowers the car (like it being bumped, e.g.).

One quick, easy and cheap way to safely get beneath your rig is to park one side's wheels up on a sidewalk curb. Instant clearance!
