PLEASE NOTE: ROCK HARD 4X4 REAR BUMPER REQUIRED
Hardcore rock crawlers and light duty fire road explorers alike need to add the Rock Hard 4x4 skid plate system to their build list. Protect your extremely vulnerable engine exhaust muffler from trail debris and obstacles with our 1/4" thick plate aluminum skid plate.
Our 1/4" thick skid plate is made from a solid sheet of aluminum then bent, formed, and hand welded into it's highly protective shape. Designed to work in conjunction with and requires our RH-5040 Aluminum Jeep Wrangler JK Rear Bumper without Tire Carrier weighing in at 40 lbs.
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.
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.
NOTE: This RH-5047 requires our aluminum RH-5040 RH4x4 rear bumper.
RH4x4 was the first to use precision bent drop brackets that use your rear sway bar mounts, not rubber exhaust mounts, as front support locations. This means our skid transfers drivetrain vibration thought your chassis. This allows your muffler to continue to flex in its mounts naturally without bracing your muffler to your frame rails - completely negating the cushion those rubber 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.
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 1/4" thick aluminum 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.
Laser precision pre-cut holes line up to existing holes on RH4x4 rear bumper.
