The Jeep Wrangler TJ engine/transmission skidplate from Skid Row Offroad is designed to protect the vulnerable engine and transmission pans and exhaust tubes from unnecessary trail damage. Skid Row Offroad offers a variety of skidplates, bumpers, and accessories for Jeep, Toyota, and Nissan 4x4s.

Although a new front bumper and winch are great aids to any 4x4 and typically the first aftermarket purchase for a newly acquired rig, a quality set of underbody skidplates will also help your 4x4 tackle a trail and get back home again. More often than not, skidplates will also ensure that you make it home without any costly damage underneath your vehicle. After all, a busted oil pan or transmission pan on the trail is actually more than just your problem. It affects all of us in the OHV community as an oil-strewn trail is more ammunition for those who would like to see legal trails shut down to OHV use.

Helping to ensure that we avoid busted oil pans and keep trails open in the process, Skid Row Offroad offers a complete line of skidplates for most Jeep models, including Liberty, Grand Cherokee, and Wrangler JK. Skidplates are also offered for Toyota Tacoma, 4Runner, Tundra, and Sequoia vehicles, as well as the Nissan Xterra and Frontier. In addition to its selection of underbody-protection components, Skid Row also offers bumpers and other trail-savvy accessories for Jeeps and other 4x4s.

Although they may not be as visible as a new set of tires or a shiny new bumper, underbody skidplates will often see your vehicle farther through the trail. The Skid Row products have proven to be largely efficient at warding off potential underbody damage to our Jeep Wrangler TJ and are sure to keep up the good work for years to come. Check out the photos and captions for more details about Skid Row's Jeep TJ skidplates.

Another Skid Row product for Wranglers is its mirror-relocation brackets, designed to reposition the side mirrors to the windshield frame, so they can still be used after the doors are removed.
