Not sure if they removed that donut damper or not. I know they looked at the plate and where it bolts to, and they said the bolt pattern does not match. So it does not sound like that is the problem.

I had to reschedule the (third) fit inspection - it was supposed to be yesterday but I had a work conflict.

The parts manager had looked into the situation, and he said Jeep reports that nobody else is having this problem. And yet, I've been to the dealer twice and both times they said it doesn't fit. For the third inspection, the parts manager wants to be there to see for himself. Heck, I should just drive it up on my ramps and crawl under there to see for myself.

If memory serves, there is a specific pattern to which the skid plates are to be installed(dealer or in your driveway), and by not doing so correctly, it will cause the skid plates to not fit.

This, exactly. Thanks. The install was completed the day before yesterday and they had to remove that damper to fit it. The damper looks and feels like a bigger, heavier hockey puck, and metal not hard rubber like a puck is. I kept the damper as a souvenir.

Thanks again, talonx. I now have a fully plated JGC. Finally!

Re: Adding skid plates for 2016 WK2: Do I go with Jeep's ORA-II plates?

I came across the paperwork for my skid plates (pictures of them are shown above in post #10 in this thread) and noticed that the actual names that Jeep uses for the 2 pieces of the transfer case skid plate are the fuel bundle skid plate, and the transfer case skid plate. In case anyone finds that helpful, I thought that was an odd name. And for the 2 pieces of the fuel tank skid plate, they are simply enough, left, and right.

So the five ORA-II skid plates have three part numbers:
► Front Axle Skid Plate, part # 82211995, $193.00 - 1 piece
► Fuel Tank Skid Plate, part # 82211999, $217.00 - 2 pieces, left and right
► Transfer Case Skid Plate, part # 82211994AB, $101.00 - 2 pieces, transfer case and fuel bundle skid plates

As for the damper, the hockey puck-like thing, I found an image that shows it. The image shows the 2 plates for the Transfer Case Skid Plate, part # 82211994AB. The transfer case skid plate is on the left, and the fuel bundle skid plate on the right. The damper, about 4" in diameter, is on the left edge of the fuel bundle skid plate:

Finally, in my pictures in post #10, my flip flops are there for scale. Here's a link to that post:

I installed the skid plates myself on my 2016 CRD Wk2. When looking at your Jeep from the side do you see the fuel tank skids? Everything bolted pretty tight, but I get paranoid thinking it's sagging.

Re: Adding skid plates for 2016 WK2: Do I go with Jeep's ORA-II plates?

I have been trying to figure out how to purchase the skid plates in phases so after looking at the WK2 protection page

https://www.chiefproducts.com.au/pages/protection

and reading echo7tango posts, I decided to make a purchase of the mopor skid plates as phase one from Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram - Original Parts - SteveWhiteParts.com which appeared to have the best price. Once I get those installed I will move on to phase two of saving up for the additional 3rd party skid plates...

Thanks again echo7tango for the post!

Re: Adding skid plates for 2016 WK2: Do I go with Jeep's ORA-II plates?

Does anyone have experience with the Chief Products or Shield Productions aftermarket transmission skid plates? I installed the mopar plates and Dom's plate, now looking to prevent a big hole in the plastic bottomed transmission. I made a thread trying to discuss the two here:
