Can't Order Skid Plates
 
I ordered a 2014 Durango Limited AWD last week. Options included were hemi engine, navigation and power liftgate, cd player, block heater, trailer tow, and safety/security group. I wanted the skid plate group but the order system would not accept it as an option.

Does anyone know if the skid plate option will be available as a group or will I have to order each skid plate individually from the parts system?

I got an email from dodge.com that they were processing my order and another email that it was scheduled for production. I will be able to track my Durango through the stages of production with the Vehicle Order Tracking System (VOTS).
I know a number of folks have talked about receiving additional information about the building of their vehicle if they have a special member status. What all does the additional report cover?

Thanks
Dan

Dan, I ordered a Citadel with hemi and did order the skid plate package with no problem. not sure why you where unable to. Yes if you sign up on here as a level 3 or 4 you can submit your car info and you are able to track it even after it leaves factory. Just today my VOTS showed me in trim where (mots) on this site updated as showing car has already been inspected and is leaving factory. Others that have been on here longer can give you better info on it I'm sure.

Available as an option on the citadel only. You can get it after market though. It's One of those pointless hold backs to give the citadel added perceived value I think. I know how that sounds, but I don't mean that in a negative way against the citadel but more dodges judgement. I have the R/T and since it's lowered, you'd think skid plates would make a good option. Ioptioned mine out above what I see a majority of citadels going for. People who are spending money like that will get more options, is just a list revenue stream for them. I went with the R/T because I liked the look over the citadels chrome, but outsold have gotten roof racks and skid plates had they been available.

What's the difference between what you get at the factory and the skid plates accessories from MOPAR:

Skid Plates - 82211995 | Mopar

I can't say for 100% sure, but I don't think there is one other than it probably choosing more than the option as you but parts and have them installed after market.

So.. the MOPAR one is a single skid plate. Covers the front suspension area.

The Factory one is Front Suspension, Transfer Case, Fuel Tank, and Belly Pan.

I asked my dealer about them, and he's looking into it, but Milous recommended talking to Peter at JustForJeeps.com.

See the following PDF for part numbers and pricing (courtesy of Milous):

Has anyone managed to add the skid plates to their cars? I am trying to see if its possible to add it to my 2014 R/T Thanks

Re: Can't Order Skid Plates
 
It's on my to do list.

However, it's a good $500-$600, soooo... it will be a post Holiday purchase/project I suspect.

I took skid plates off 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland and put on my 2014 Durango Limited. Did not have gas tank plates but all others. Everything fit perfect

can you tell me which plates you put on?

I ordered a set of front plates so far.

so you have transfer case ones on too?

That PDF from Milous (linked above) will give you the part numbers you need.

As the previous poster called out, there's no Fuel Tank skid plate yet, but everything else is there. Just make sure you order the right ones for your engine displacement.
