Skid Row Offroad JP-2001 Offroad Engine & Transmission Skid Plate for 84-01 Jeep Cherokee XJ with 14" Crossmember Location

Catalog #: 12529.105
Skid Row Offroad Part #: JP-2001
Skid Row Engine & Transmission Skid Plate is made of 3/16" thick steel that is laser cut and CNC folded for consistent quality that sets the standard for Jeep skid plates. It is also reinforced with ¼" thick steel angle along the driver's side to provide plenty of strength while easily clearing both your exhaust system and your driveshaft. It protects your oil pan, exhaust, and transmission from damage no matter what the trail throws at you. Not only does it provide protection, but it prevents your Jeep from getting hung up on the transmission cross-member by providing a smooth surface to slide over obstacles with. One easily installed skid plate provides the complete protection you need to feel confident while on the trail.
Made in the USA!

Mounted in three locations, it provides you with the best protection you can get for your Cherokee. And you don't have to remove it to change your oil! This engine skid plate mounts to the transmission cross-member at the rear. On the passenger side it mounts using the bolt for the lower control arm. On the driver's side there is a two piece mounting hoop that goes over the driveshaft and attaches to the lower control arm bolt also. All of this makes for a very sturdy skid plate that gives you plenty of clearance for your driveshaft and exhaust.

Installation requires drilling only 1 hole and clears factory and most aftermarket headers. It's mounting height is also adjustable to accommodate changes in your exhaust system.

Skid Row’s Engine & Transmission Skid plate for the Jeep Cherokee XJ accommodates stock height Cherokees and works great on lifted ones as well. This skid plate fits Jeeps with the 4.0L engine with automatic or manual transmission.

This skid plate may fit with V6 and 4 cylinder engines as well, but the oil drain hole is designed for the 4.0L and will not be in the correct location for these other engines.
