No problem, glad to share.

I can't recommend these plates highly enough. Rex has been great in responding to any questions or issues I've had getting his stuff installed.

I'm curious how that looks. I occasionally venture into areas where I should take the front air dam off.
Update,

We are currently interviewing several other manufacturers to manufacture our shield products due to the current unable to keep up with our current orders. We apologize for any inconvenience in delays of orders that are beyond our control at the moment.
Best regards, Rex

Re: New WK2 "Front Sump" and "Transmission" Shields Skid Plates by Sheild Productions

I installed both of these skid plates (the thicker aluminum ones) and so far they are holding up great! I off road quite a bit and have scuffed them up pretty good already. I also use the pre-runner plate from RRO when off roading. However, I would recommend to anyone that actually off roads with these to upgrade the front sump forward mounting bolts. The tiny factory screws and plastic push pin are not strong enough to hold this plate up. I ended up drilling out all four holes. Drilling adjacent access holes and filing an edge so that I could mount u clip fasteners and larger bolts. I actually had extra hardware from installing factory skid plates. However, the parts should be easy to get from Jeep or even a hardware store.

I just got a couple of your shields and the front sump shield has no logo in it. One of your posts suggested that the logo was also there to help with draining moisture? Perhaps a couple of holes drilled would be appropriate since you didn't put on the logo?

Unfortunately Since We received so many request not wanting the logo, we decided not to put the logos on every shield. However you can drill a few if you wish if it seems an issue down the road. Best regards Rex.

Do the existing threads use a nut? would it be possible to drill the hole 1 size up and tap a new thread or is there not enough meat?
