What's the most vulnerable and exposed drivetrain component on your entire vehicle??? The Transfer case! Unfortunately, its also a very expensive item to replace if you damage it. We know, we've been there and done that! Tucked right up next to is the exhaust and the catalytic convertor... another favorite for rocks and stumps to attack on the trail.
Now you can cover up your 'Achilles Heel' with the Rocky Road super tough 3/16" thick Samurai skid plate. With precise fitment every time and a large coverage area, this is a must have for every Samurai owner.

and clearance for big lifts and high angle driveshafts.
Easy install and beefy as hell! Gives the transfer case full coverage as well as the catalytic converter. Manufactured of 3/16 steel. Comes complete with hardware and instructions. Combines perfectly with our Rock Sliders and Superslider kits giving you the ultimate in complete vehicle protection. Make your Zuk bulletproof from the bottom up.
Please note our wraparound mounting system as shown above. Alot of the skidplates on the market use a J-bolt. This is essentially a Ubolt with one leg cut off. Not only is this just a cheesy way to mount a skidplate, the J-bolts are prone to open up over time as you bump and knock our competitor's skid plates. You end up with a loose rattly chunk of steel under your vehicle that will fall off in time. Our Samurai skid plate mounting system wraps the frame for a secure mounting system no matter how many times you smack it or drag yourself over trail hazards.

All skidplates are CAD cut for great fit every time. Slotted mounting holes makes it easy to install and get the hardware mounted.
If you are looking for the best protection for your Samurai, look no further, you have found it.
Please note, current skidplate kits will not work on the Coil Suspension system. We will be working on a belly pan skidplate for Zuks with the coil conversion Summer 09.
