Is this a factory skid? I have an 03' 5 speed. I'm trying to figure out if the PO installed it or if it came on it. Thanks.
Thanks. I do have the stock t-case skid. I bought the Jeep 3 years ago and just assumed it was a factory skid, until someone pointed out that only autos have a skid up front. The thing is really heavy and I was thinking about removing it since I don't play on rocks. It does protect the trans and oil pan though.It's definitely some sort of aftermarket engine/tranny skid... maybe home grown? Looks like you have stock transfer case skid.
I thought about it and looked at what I use my Jeep for and agree with you.I have scraped it climbing lots of obstaclesEven if you don't play in rocks the skid adds weight close to the ground which improves your center of gravity. I would leave it on.
