Achilles had his heel, the 96+ v8 ZJs have an aluminum rear differential. This new skid will protect the lowest hanging, arguably most vulnerable and vital component in the 4wd drivetrain. Constructed from CNC plasma cut 1/4" steel. Bent into 9 different facets, for extreme strength, this skid/slider hugs the aluminum differential very tight, sacrificing only 3/8" ground clearance! Bolting around the axle tubes, and again around the pinion with 7/16" grade 8 bolts, this skid protects the diff from serious damage by easily sliding over rocks and anything else looking to destroy your axle. Will fit d44a axles in both WJ and ZJ Jeeps.
Arrives bare steel, standard, select powder coat in drop down menu for additional cost.
*** THE ADDED OPTION FOR THE REAR LIP GUARD WILL NOT FIT IN CONJUNCTION WITH AFTERMARKET DIFFERENTIAL COVERS***
*** A spacer may be needed for jeep WJ swaybars with this skid***
