The 1997-2006 Jeep TJ has a flexy coil suspension, but it leaves the steering box very vulnerable to rocks. The Skid Row Offroad Steering Box Skid Plate provides the protection your Jeep needs to make sure your expensive steering box isn’t damaged. It bolts on easily and only requires the drilling of one hole to provide serious protection for your expensive steering box. There is also a slot provided to allow it to be installed with an ARB Bull Bar front bumper. It is made from laser-cut 3/16″ thick steel that is CNC folded for consistent quality and fit. Then it’s finished in an environmentally-friendly, and durable, black powder coating.
