This Skid Row Offroad Transfer Case Skid Plate for your KJ Liberty 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 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. It can be used with either the NP231 or NP242 transfer case with no loss of ground clearance. Installation is simple, especially if your Jeep originally came with the optional factory transfer case skid plate. However, some holes will need to drilled if your Jeep didn’t come from the factory with a transfer case skid plate. While changing your transfer case fluid isn’t something you need to do often, your oil changes will be just as easy with the skid plate installed as they were originally. That’s because we included an oil drain hole that works with either transfer case.
