This Skid Row Offroad Transfer Case Skid Plate for your XJ Cherokee is much stronger than the optional factory part (if you got one! ) and protects one of the most vulnerable and expensive parts of your drivetrain. It is designed to work with stock or lowered transmission cross-members and includes a drain hole to make maintenance easier. The three mounting bolts that attach the skid to the transmission cross-member are grade 5 carriage bolts to help prevent damage to the bolt heads and make the bottom of your Jeep a just a little bit smoother. 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.
