Protect your transmission and oil pan with our River Raider JK skid plate armor! Our oil pan skid includes an oil drain panel that allows the oil to be changed without removing the skid. An optional oil drain valve can also be added to make oil changes a breeze! The oil pan skid bolts to our transmission skid that bolts to your Jeep’s cross member. (For 2012 and newer models, the oil pan and transmission skid comes as a single piece.) It allows the use of a long arm suspension kit without cutting. Available in steel or aluminum, in bare metal or with a black satin finish. Our aluminum skid system weighs approximately 1/2 the weight of our steel skids.
Made from 3/16" steel or 1/4" aluminum in Pennsylvania, USA!
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 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 so the UHMW protects the aluminum and helps them to slide over the rocks instead of getting your JK skid plate scratched up!
