Noted off-road accessory manufacturer ARB has introduced under-vehicle skid plates for the 2007-2011 Jeep Wrangler JK equipped with the 3.8-liter V-6.
The skidplates are manufactured from folded 3mm laser cut steel, and designed to protect vital underbody components including steering, engine oil pan, transmission and transfer case. The plates mount securely to the vehicle's chassis providing optimal structural integrity, and are zinc-plated and powder coated in a silver textured finish. For ease of servicing, the plates are designed to be easily removable.
The two available pieces for the JK are the engine/gearbox skid plate panel, and the charcoal canister skid plate panel. Skid plates are currently under development for the 2012 model equipped with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine.
Suggested retail price for the set is $433.29.
