About this product

Part #: 18003.30

Constructed of durable 1/4 Inch powder coated steel with a rust resistant E-Coating, this Skid Plate is designed to take whatever the trail throws at you! Designed to fit with all Rugged Ridge front bumpers (looks amazing with the XHD Bumper system!) or all factory front bumpers, this skid plate provides protection for all front steering components including the very expensive electric sway bar disconnect system found on Rubicon models. Easy to install frame mount design incorporates special gussets and welded brackets to ensure long life and great off road performance. Grinding, drilling and cutting may be required.

What made you choose this particular product?
Price, quality, functionality. I snagged this complete product for $468 and there isn't a better product at this price IMO.
Is this your first time buying from this brand? Did you consider other brands?
First time Rugged Ridge product
Was it easy to install? Any installation tips that will help others?
Very easy bolt on installation. Have a friend help although I did mine alone. Use a board to help align the gate. May take a few adjustments after to get a perfect close but I does happen.
Once you've had a chance to use the product, did it meet your expectations?
Excellent product I wouldn't change anything about it if I did it all over.
Any additional comments?
Similar to Teraflex tire carrier. Much better price and when comparing to my friends Teraflex carrier I can't find a benefit to the more expensive Teraflex.

What made you choose this particular product?
Got at a great discounted price from Amazon on prime day,so I'm happy with the performance/light output. That been said performance / light output is laking for the high price if buying at reg. Price.
Is this your first time buying from this brand? Did you consider other brands?
No, have gotten recovery straps and storage items from them before.
Was it easy to install? Any installation tips that will help others?
Install was easy. However the electrical can be a bit difficult as harness and switch are not included. You will have to diy.
Once you've had a chance to use the product, did it meet your expectations?
Good.
Any additional comments?
Buy the mount only and source better brighter light your self.

What made you choose this particular product?
The HUGE stock antenna isn’t ideal for most circumstances especially off-road so a simple and easy solution to that problem is a replacement like this!
What were you trying to accomplish by adding this product?
Better for off-road conditions or any other circumstances in which the stock antenna could be compromised.
Was it easy install? Any installation tips that will help others?
Extremely easy and a good fit.
Once you’ve had a chance to use the product, did it meet your expectations?
Good bang for the buck! The AM/FM can get a bit finicky but if you don’t use it too much, or at all, it’s nothing to worry about.
Any additional comments?
Improved look over the stock antenna.
