Rugged Ridge Evap can skid plate JK
« on: October 30, 2010, 09:35:04 am »
Just finished installing this skid. Nice powder coat, very easy install. 3 bolts removed, 5 bolts and 2 allens installed and thats it. Everything worked great. The only concern I have is the rear bolt connection the allens are only about 3/4 of an inch. Seems a bit weak for the purpose of holding up to a 4500 lb object colliding with a boulder. But I guess time will tell.

It wont let me upload any pics but let me know if you want any

Understand they are called "skid" plates for a reason. They provide a surface for the vehicle to "skid" over the obstacle without hanging up on what is above them.
Don't worry, it will hold up.
