This JK skid plate gets your 2007-2017 Jeep JK Wrangler trail ready by fully protecting your 2.5 gallon air tank and factory evap canister with River Raider air tank skid plate armor and brackets. Mount brackets using factory evap mounting location for a secure install. Available in bare 3/16" steel or 1/4" aluminum, black satin smooth finish or textured epoxy finish. Our aluminum air tank skid plate system weighs approximately half the weight of our steel skids.
For proper drive shaft clearance, a 2.5" lift or greater is recommended.
Our aluminum skids, while offering excellent protection, will not stand up to the same level of abuse as our steel skids. Also available with replaceable UHMW Polyethylene skins. UHMW stands for Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene and these 3/16" thick panels are specially designed for sliding over rocks. They can be used with the steel or aluminum skids. We strongly recommend them with our aluminum JK air tank skids, which are made from 1/4" material. The aluminum skids will protect your system, but they will get scratched if you wheel them hard. The UHMW protects the aluminum and helps your JK skid plate to slide over the rocks instead of getting scratched up.
