Our 3/16" thick skid plate is made from a solid sheet of steel then bent, formed, and hand welded into it's highly protective shape. Designed to fit both the 2007 - 2011 3.8L and 2012 - 2016 3.6L engines plus transmission and dual cat system.
Proven by the most hardcore Jeep JK drivers on trails like the Rubicon, Moab, Rausch Creek and more, our skid plate system's design is the key to it's popularity.
With creature comforts like laser cut access door to your oil filter to RH4x4 exclusive "rock dome" bolt head protectors for the supplied mounting hardware - our skid system is undoubtedly the industry's premium package.
Our system is cut and formed from a single sheet making it smooth and seamless. This gives you a true skid plate without rock catching and high centering flaws found in low-budget alternatives. We do more than just protect your oil pan and transmission from straight on impact though - we have flared the sides of our skid plate upwards for side impact protection that also helps glide you off the obstacle rather than high center.
NOTE: This RH-6000-LA is specifically laser cut for long arm suspension clearance.
RH4x4 was the first to use laser cut and precision bent drop brackets that use your frame, not motor mount, as front support locations. This means our skid transfers zero engine and transmission vibration thought your chassis. This allows your motor and transmission to continue to flex in their mounts naturally without bracing them to your frame rails - completely negating the cushion motor and transmission mounts are designed to provide. This makes for a smoother and quieter ride like factory without the creaks, ringing, vibrating, and harsh performance of inferior systems.
The rear of our skid plate mounts to your transmission cross member. Included in our RH-6000 and RH-6000-LA hardware kit are exclusive and in-house produced "rock dome" bolt head protectors. These domes keep your bolt heads safe and accessible and versus damaged and sheared off.
NOTE: Aftermarket cross members may require customer supplied bolts. The pattern is correct however some manufacturers are using different thread patterns.
Our skid plate system is the industry standard because of the confidence it instills in each and every customer. Each skid is laser cut from 3/16" thick steel coated in our weather and debris resistant powder coat finish. Strength is proven on virtually all Jeep enthusiast forums with glowing reviews. Since 2007 our skid plate system has been the undisputed leader in undercarriage protection.
RH4x4 skid plates are very recognizable for two major reasons: beefy unmatched strength and laser precision fitment. What makes up a RH4x4 skid plate is what makes it so strong.
