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 gas/fuel tank from trail debris and obstacles with our 3/16" thick plate steel skid plate.
Total Weight: 63 lbs.
Our 3/16" thick skid plate is made from a solid sheet of steel then bent, formed, and hand welded into it's highly protective shape. When combined with our RH4x4 Oil Pan / Transmission Skid Plate System and Transfer Case Skid Plate forms an interlocking unit for ultimate protection.
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.
With creature comforts like our RH4x4 exclusive "rock dome" bolt head protectors for the supplied mounting hardware and total Gas / Fuel Tank coverage - our skid system is undoubtedly the industry's premium package.
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. We do more than just protect your gas / fuel tank from straight on impact though - we have flared the sides of our skid plate upwards for side impact protection that also helps glide you off the obstacle rather than high center.
The RH4x4 gas / fuel skid plate mounts to your existing fuel tank support mounts for OEM fitment but with the added strength of 3/16" steel and does NOT require you to drop your fuel tank.
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 3/16" thick steel 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 cut fitment plus all necessary bends for better than OEM coverage and fitment.
When combined with Oil Pan Skid Plate and Transfer Case Skid Plate forms a seamless interlocked level of protection.
Laser cut drain holes prevent water from collecting.
Superior coverage versus OEM.
