A full belly skidplate protects the TH350 transmission, offset Dana 18 transfer case, and Warn overdrive. The skid provides a flat surface to slide over rocks and ties into the custom boxed tube frame built by Hendricks 4x4. The wheelbase is stretched out to 108 inches (15 inches longer than stock) to allow the Jeep to climb steep obstacles. Genright Comp Cut corners and the relocated fuel cell allow the rear axle to be pushed way back on the frame.
