We dropped the Jeep about 1-inch and lost 1-inch of tire radius for a total drop of 2 inches. However, we gained about 2 inches of clearance in the middle of the Jeep thanks to the Teraflex BellyUp skidplate. Out back, we tossed our old and beat-up factory gas tank skid. In its place we put a 3/16-inch-thick 6061 aluminum skidplate from Savvy Off-Road. Born in the crucible of the Hammers, this skid will handle more abuse than the stock one, it's lighter, and it allowed us to raise the gas tank 1-inch higher than stock. Sure, overall we lost 1-inch of ground clearance out back, but the stronger skidplate should more than make up for it.
