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.
