Re: Mopar vs 4xGuard Skid Plates?

LOL. It's like my dad always said "It's nothing a few thousand dollars can't fix". I promise you are not alone. I have spent more money on extra's for this jeep than any other car I've owned. But I love it and wouldn't have done it any other way. I get stopped all the time from people asking me questions about it. Our WK's are something you don't see everyday lifted, at least in my area. It feels pretty good to have something unique. It's definitely worth the extra cost to make it right. If you want to know all the options your jeep came with stock you can do a free vin check, I've done it on all my vehicles. Here's a website that works pretty good: (Comprehensive Chevrolet, Saturn, GMC, Hummer, Cadillac, Buick, Oldsmobile, Pontiac, Geo, Dodge, Plymouth, Jeep, Chrysler, Ford, Lincoln, Mercury, Mazda Truck, Mercedes VIN Decoder)

I hear ya. Yeah I've already registered it with Jeep/Mopar at that little site they have that tells me what I have stock and helps me keep up with maintenance. It's an uphill battle, but one I'm willing to fight.

I already had to replace those stupid, useless flat plastic slats that came on the roof with an actual luggage rack (looking to put on a basket in time), put in the heavy gauge wire mesh grill mod to replace THOSE stupid plastic slats, and today I learned I got the model with QT-1 rather than the QT-2 transfer system. The pitfalls of buying used vehicles, i guess. But where's the fun if there's no elbow grease to appreciate?

I just wish I could replace the cash I need to buy/apply these mods with the work I'm willing to put into it. Hard to save money for fun/mods when my allotted vet school loan (jeez it's expensive) is my sole income.

Re: Mopar vs 4xGuard Skid Plates?

Well said man. I'm in school myself. Well out right now to save up for the rest. Bills and other expenses always seem to get in the way. But when I work hard I also play hard. Started out with a lot of smaller mods and worked/saved my way up to the bigger ones. I still have a lot more planned for it, I guess once the mod bug hits you it never really stops lol. I always see things I can change or fix. The good thing is that there are so many options and relative parts to choose from for our vehicles. It's nice knowing we have the option to change whatever we want and make it our own.

And if you're looking into a roof rack after your lift, Rola is the one I chose. It's really inexpensive (150 bucks) and is a great solid 2 piece rack! A lot of good reviews on here about it.

With the RRO lift you can fit 285/70-17 and it maintains some rake. The RC will level your ride and the max time you can fit is 265/70-17. You can't go wrong with either. IMO the RRO is the better choice if you want a BB.
