Jeep Wrangler JL Rugged Ridge Gas Tank/Exhaust Skid Plate | Black Aluminum | 18003.53


Modular skid plate system with Trail Armor Technology
Dual-layer construction with ?-inch thick aluminum plate
Provides rugged underbody protection


Explore the trail with confidence, knowing that your Jeep Wrangler JL is equipped with the unmatched underbody protection of the Rugged Ridge Gas Tank/Exhaust Skid Plate. This modular skid plate system is designed with Trail Armor Technology, delivering comprehensive axle-to-axle coverage for rugged underbody protection.
Each modular section of the skid plate is constructed from a sturdy ?-inch thick aluminum plate, offering remarkable strength in a lightweight package. To enhance its trail-ready toughness, we’ve integrated our proprietary Trail Armor Technology. This flexible UHMW polyethylene composite overlay reduces surface resistance when sliding over rocks and enhances impact resistance when encountering obstacles.

Maintenance is a breeze with this skid plate system. The composite exterior panels are easily replaceable to ensure continued protection. Recessed mounting hardware minimizes the risk of getting hung up on obstacles, and when it’s time for routine maintenance, the skid plate can be easily dropped for access to the protected components.

The Rugged Ridge Modular Skid Plate System provides critical coverage for the engine and transmission (Part No. 18003.52). For full front-to-rear coverage, you can add gas tank and exhaust skids (Part No. 18003.53, which requires the installation of 18003.52 Engine/Trans Skid Plates).

Bolt on a set of these skid plates for your Jeep Wrangler JL and experience the difference that skid plates with superpowers can make.
