Both Synergy and Absolute Offroad have been modifying JKs for more than a few years now, so we knew we were bound to get parts and service that fit our shiny new Jeep well. Jason Seamons of Absolute Offroad quickly got underway installing Synergy’s heavy-duty skidplates on our green JK. This system replaces the stock crossmember with a transmission skidplate that has a bolt-on T-case skid and engine skidplates (PN 5709-BK, $1,250). We opted for the full black powdercoating option for maximum corrosion resistance. Here Seamons is installing the T-case portion of the skidplate system behind the new Synergy crossmember.
