About Skid Row Offroad

It all started back in 1995 while attending our first Jeep Jamboree USA in Bethel, Maine with our then nearly new 1994 Jeep YJ ….which eventually became known as the Mud Puppy. We quickly learned that it was far too easy to do serious damage to critical components of what had already become our favorite toy. In addition, during the event we had made several new friends and had so much fun that, despite the damage, we were definitely going to attend more offroad events. We were hooked!

                Before the next event it only made sense to protect the underside. Since there was virtually nothing available at the time, we started designing and making our own skid plates. It wasn’t long before our offroad Jeep friends asked us to make a whole range of skid plates for them, too! …and a business was born.

                Since 1999 Skid Row has been providing the offroad community with top quality skid plates and innovative accessories, such as our Top Props. We know that when it comes to skid plates, you want protection that works and that is dependable. We also know that part of your fun is working on your vehicle yourself. So we make sure that our products are tough, but not tough to install.

                Proudly made in South Central Pennsylvania, we are still a very small, two person company and we remain dedicated to manufacturing here in the United States as we know it benefits our community. We are also committed to making quality products that let you enjoy your vehicle more whether it’s on the street or on a trail. We share your passion and always enjoy seeing our customers out having fun with our products. Happy trails!

I installed both the tranny/oil pan and steering box skid plates today on my 2006 Rubicon, went pretty smooth… Only took about 2 hours for both of them and I am no mechanic! Looking forward to getting the Night crawler front and rear bumpers soon. Keep up the good work guys!

Benjamin Fuller, Phoenix, AZ

I purchased and installed three SFK skidplate components on my 1995 Jeep GC (front control arms, transfer case and fuel tank). Everything installed without any problems and I am very impressed by both the great design of the assemblies and the high quality of the fabricated components.

George Goss, San Jose, CA

I just finished putting your oil pan skid plate on my 1999 TJ. I am very impressed with the quality of all the parts as well as the design of the plate. The installation was incredibly simple, and only took about 25 minutes!

Jon Berkowitz, USA

HI, just like to say thank you to yourself and your team at skid row for the prompt service that your delivered.
The skid plate looks fantastic on my JK. Regards,

I want to extend my deepest appreciation to you and your company for several things. I have purchased the front approach skid plate and the top bow for a 07 Wrangler. Not only do I really like the quality and finish of the products, the instructions for installation are very thorough and complete. I have purchased a few other products for my other vehicle and not all parts were there and you had to think your own way to install a few of the parts.

You guys are great….

Thanks,

RJ Miller, Ocala, Florida

Hey, I recvd the skid plate today and it is awesome and it’s on the truck already!!! Nice!!! And I mean nice!!!

Dave Ennis, USA

thank you for quick service, i received the plate yesterday and was surprised at the speed of which the order was completed and delivered. once again thank you and if your company should produce any other items for the jeep liberty sport please keep me informed.

Dennis Lunde, USA

Your Liberty skid fit well. Now you can tell people an old guy with fake knees, a right arm that’s had so much surgery that they want to put a zipper on the elbow, and enough steel in his legs to make a good TJ bumper installed one by himself. ….

Thanks for everything!

Mike Hanauer, USA

Just wanted to let you know that Skid Row realy does put out a great product! Just got finished putting up your T/C skid that I picked up from 4x4parts.com . Great design and easy install, cant wait to bang it up. Bit by bit I will have your full product line for the Xterra. Pass the word on to Eric and Pam that you have yet another happy customer!

Thanks again,

Michael Smith, USA

I love my plates (have the full set), and abuse the hell out of them.
My first time on the trail with them (which was my first ever time
offroad) saw me come down hard and by hard, I mean the front wheels left the ground and sorta jumped the rock wall I was climbing, landing my X on a rock outcropping right behind the front jack points.

having never hit a rock before (and also only ever hearing that kind of noise in an accident once), as soon as I got to level ground, I scrambled under my truck to look at what I imagined was going to be a massive dent running the width of the vehicle. All I found was a ragged white scar across the bottom. “No biggie,” I thought, “I just scraped off the powdercoating…i can touch that up when I get home.”
Then I rubbed it. Not a scrape in the paint….It was rock dust! The weight of the Xterra coming down on the rock ledge pulverized the stone. Good, hard Appalachian gneiss, too!

That was the point that you can consider me impressed, and very happy with my purchase. Keep up the excellent work.

Signed:
One happy customer,

 

Jamie Rasmussen, Alexandria, VA

Great thanks,

I wish all the companies that made aftermarket parts for the Xterra were as good as you guys.

Thanks

Kevin, USA

I just completed installation on my 2001 Xterra 4X4 of engine and transfer case skids. They went on without a problem! This was the easiest install I have ever experienced on either my Xterra or my Jeep TJ. I just removed a engine skid on the TJ, a competitor’s product that did not perform as promised. I look forward to getting a engine and gas tank skid from Skid Row in the near future. You produce a quality product, keep up the good work!

I am so pleased that I put you(r) big …..sticker on my rear window, I do not usually place product stickers on my vehicles, but your product deserves the attention.

Robert Burden, Orange, CA

I just ordered and installed the front, engine and transfer case skids for my Xterra. I just wanted to drop you a quick line to tell you how impressed I am with the plates. The plates were a breeze to install, everything lined up perfectly. …………Thank you very much for the high quality product and the attention to detail. I appreciate it very much! You’re decal is proudly displayed across my back windshield.

David, USA

Just wanted to let you know that the skidplates arrived today.
I must say I am very pleased with the look,fit and finish of them…
Iam not disappointed with your product at all..
And thank you for your quick response, The “other”
4×4 suppliers should take note. This is how it should be done.

Thank you.

David Lemay, USA

I am just writing to let you guys how much I am in love w/ your skid plates and what a great company you guys have.

We were up at Rausch Creek this past weekend and we were on trail #13-A and I put your skid plates to the test on that trails. I slammed my 2001 Nissan Xterra off some rocks that made the loudest noise I have ever heard while wheelin’.

you guys have awesome customer service too. I talked to you guys at the All-Truck Show @ Carlise summer of 2007 about my gas tank skid plate not fitting correctly. You guys had me up at your shop and corrected the problem. I tell people on different Nissan Xterra forums and everybody is shocked that a company took the time and fixed it right.

Thanks,

Jason Worrest, Bealeton, Virginia

…I have been very happy with everything i ordered. just got the gas tank skid plate installed yesterday. waiting for the rain to break again so i can get the other two in.

keep up the good work.

Sean Dagen, USA

Thank you so much for your phone call yesterday.

Through your emails and a phone call you have proved that your company is very valuable to you.

I am a true believer of Skid Row products. Never have I seen something so sturdy and yet so easy to install.

……

Thank you for performing the best customer care ever!
….

Thanks again,

John, USA

Received the Skid Plate and installed this weekend – it looks and fits just fine! Thanks for providing a good product!

Best regards,

Kurt Heilbronner, USA

Very good quality, it fit perfectly just as advertised. It’s refreshing to get something that actually works as advertised. Thanks for making such a fine product….

Don H., USA

Today I finally had the chance to put the engine skid on and I’m a very happy Jeeper now. Great product, great fit and great service!!!
Thanks a lot.

Ron, USA

Thank you very much for the information. I actually did not expect to get an answer. Generally when I ask a manufacturer a tech question involving their product under modified conditions they just ignore me. You helped me out a lot. I will definitely be getting a set of plates from you guys.

Thanks again

Unknown, USA

Just wanted you to know I had possibly the best installation experience of my life! Your attention to using existing holes and bolts was wonderful and it’s obvious the parts (engine skid and steering box so far) are stronger than needed! I’ve attached stuff from some of the ‘other’ guys and their product, attention to detail, and directions were lame compared to your stuff.

Rich Kutzner, USA

I bought a skid plate last fall. I installed it – it was easy to install and solid….I had piece of mind….

In April I went to a Jeep Jamboree in Murphy NC. We were in the Tellico area – Somewhere on trail 5 or trail 2…..we must have hit something hard. Boy was I glad the skid was there. No Damage ! ….

Regards,

Wally McCourt, USA

Wow… fast service (just received it) and obviously a high-quality piece of work. Thanks.

Don Jones, USA

….. It installed perfectly with no interference with my rock rails. Brilliantly simple points of attachment I wish all aftermarket products fit as well as Skid Row. Thanks for a great product!

Jim Bonner, Washington, DC

Just figured I would drop you a line and say “Your Skid Plate Saved My Day!”

Al Handy, Columbia, NJ

I just wanted to say thanks for the great team & products you have…….Your skids performed flawlessly and were a breeze to put on. Thanks again for a wonderful experience in such a stressful situation as i was in. Thanks again too all involved.

Drew Rutherford, USA

I appreciate the help, the speed of delivery, and your reply. I’ll be sure to recommend your products to as many people as I can! Have a good one!

Frank, USA

My skidplate arrived today via UPS and it’s already on! Great quality product…can’t wait to actually use it! Thanks so much for your great work – it’s really appreciated!

Have a great holiday,

Andy Gladieux, USA

I just wanted to thank you for all of the service you provided in getting the skids to me. I had a chance to beat em up this past Saturday at Paragon, and unfortunatly, I merely dinged them 😀

I greatly appreciate everything you have done, as well as the crafstmanship of the plates and the added piece of mind you have given me while off-roading!

Many thanks,

Dan Onorevole, USA

Installed a Skid Row engine plate a few days ago. It was very simple as advertised and seems to be very strong. The best feature is it protects the transmission as well as the oil pan. It is a bit more than other skid plates but you get what you pay for. I’ll be seeing if they’re tough enough when I go to Murphy NC in November.

Check them out.

Mike, USA

I LOVE YOUR PRODUCTS!!!!!! I HAVE INSTALLED A RADIATOR GUARD AND A LONG-ARM SKID PLATE ON MY “04” JEEP TJ, AND THEY LOOK AND PERFORM JUST LIKE THERE SUPPOSE TO. HEAVY DUTY WITH GREAT STYLE. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK.

I just installed my new radiator skid that I recieved from 4WD Hardware. It is a very nice product. It was easy to install and looks great. I would tell anyone to get this. It is just a little added comfort knowing that something is protecting my radiator. Thank you all at Skid Row for this great experience. Have a great day.
