      Review & Installation Video

      Hey, what's up, guys? I'm Ryan from Extreme Terrain and today, I'm here with the Barricade skid plate, fitting your 2018 and up Wrangler JL. This is gonna be for the JL owner that is looking for some additional underside protection for those rocky trails that they're lacking in stock form. This is perfect for the off-roading enthusiast that's looking for some additional peace of mind when they're traversing through those tough trails. This is designed to fit with your factory bumper so you don't need to spend extra money on an aftermarket to swap this plate in. Now, this is made from heavy-duty stainless steel plating so it's gonna provide plenty of protection and it's gonna be corrosion resistant. Not only that, but this has an aggressive black powder coating that's gonna add to that and it's gonna blend into the underside of your Jeep. This is designed to be a direct bolt-on and comes with everything needed to install and there's no drilling or modification required. This is reasonably priced on the site when compared to others of the same design and construction and at just around $180, I think this is a great option to go with. This thing is plenty thick and strong and not only that, but it fits great. As far as the install goes, I'm gonna give this one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter as you can install this in about an hour using basic hand tools. Now, with that being said, let's hop into the install. Tools required for this install: flathead screwdriver, socket extension, 8-millimeter socket, 13-millimeter socket, 16-millimeter socket, 18-millimeter socket, 13-millimeter wrench, 3/8 drive ratchet, quarter-inch drive ratchet, 3/8 drive impact. So to begin this installation, obviously, we're gonna have to remove our factory bumper so the first thing we're gonna do is go underneath of the Jeep and remove our splash guard. So you're gonna have eight push pins across the front of this splash shield. All you're gonna do is just take a flathead screwdriver and get in between that center section. Pry this one piece out and then you can pull the whole thing out. So we're just gonna go across and do that to all of these. So you're gonna have two recessed holes on the backside of this splash guard. We're gonna use an 8-millimeter socket to take both of those screws out. So we're gonna put a hand on and take that last screw out. Then after that, we can pull this down and off. Then you're gonna have this metal guard here. You're gonna have two 16-millimeter bolts so we're gonna take those off. Once you take those out, you're gonna smack this up in the air, kind of, and that's gonna release that. So, on the end of these bumpers, these bumpers came with two different covers. These covers are not necessary to remove to take this bumper off. However, for video purposes, I'm gonna remove this cover just so you can see a better idea of what I'm doing to get this bumper off. So we're gonna use a 7-millimeter socket to remove the bolts that are holding this in. So all of them are gonna be bolts except for this top one. This top one is gonna be a screw. After that, you can shimmy this cover off. So then we're gonna disconnect our fog light harness here, so you're just gonna press this little tab in up here and then we can pull that plug out. After that, we're gonna use an 18-millimeter socket to take these two nuts off on the outside of the frame rail. Then we're gonna do the two nuts on the inside of the frame rail. So at this point in time, your bumper is not gonna fall off. It's still held in with these two push pins up top. What we're gonna do is just take a flathead screwdriver, do the same thing we did for the other ones, pry up on the center, and that is going to allow these to be removed completely. We'll do the same thing for the other one, prying up that center, getting it loose, prying it the rest of the way out. Once you have those last two push pins removed, you're ready to remove your front bumper. So we finally have our bumper off since it's gonna make it a lot easier to get this skid plate on. Now the next thing we're gonna do is we're going to mount these brackets. Now you can do this installation on the ground or you can do it up in the air. We're gonna do it up in the air just so you can get a better idea of what exactly we're doing. Now, these brackets are labeled driver side and passenger side so we're gonna start with the driver side and we're gonna face this little L towards the outside and backside. What we're gonna do is take the smaller bolts that they provide us with and we're gonna place a washer on each one of those. These are gonna go up through the frame rail and they're gonna poke out through these little holes. Once you get those two bolts to stick out of there, we're gonna slide this bracket on since we want this hole back behind here and then on the outside, we're gonna do a flat washer, a lock washer, and a nut. So, same thing goes for the other side. We're gonna start with those bolts with washers on them and we're gonna take our bracket, orienting it this way. We'll do a flat washer, lock washer, and a nut. So next, since our Barricade skid plate is gonna mount behind our frame rail and we have this ridge on this secondary bracket, we need to remove all four of these brackets. We're gonna use a 16-millimeter socket to remove these nice silver bolts and then we'll take all these and put them on the table. So the next step is going to be to install the skid plate. We're gonna use the same hardware that we used to bolt these brackets on these frame rails to mount the skid plate to those brackets. For the front, well, actually a good idea is to use a zip tie just to hold it up there for now because when we pass our bumper through, one of the studs is gonna go through there and then into our skid plate and the factory nut is gonna hold this on. So I'm gonna get someone to help me hold this up while I get that hardware installed. So we're gonna do a bolt with a flat washer and then on the back side, it's gonna get another flat washer, a lock washer, and a nut. And then up here, we're gonna take a zip tie, like I said, and we're gonna put that through the hole just for now, and that's gonna hold that on there. So the next step is going to be to reinstall that front bumper. Like I said, one of the studs on this bumper is gonna pass through the frame rail into our new skid plate. When you reinstall those nuts and tighten it down, we'll tighten down the rest of the hardware. So the next thing we're gonna do is reinstall those factory nuts. Then you can tighten them down using an 18-millimeter socket. Then we'll do the same thing for the other side. Once you get the bumper on and tight, the next thing we're gonna do is tighten up these brackets where they bolt to the frame and where they bolt to the skid plate. We're gonna use a 13-millimeter socket and wrench. So that's gonna wrap up my review and install. For more videos like this, check us out at

        ALMOST perfect!

        The item looks and performs perfect. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is due to the poor installation instructions. The photos were dark and the wording was vague. I did install it with an aftermarket bumper but everything else was OEM.

        Great plate but...

        Unfortunately this super beefy, well made and simple design is NOT compatible with a winch mount in the factory steel bumper without MAJOR modification and so it had to be returned and we reinstalled the factory skid plate :-(

        Great skid plate

        Love the skid plate. Adds protection and gives the front bumper a better more complete look. However, I noticed it protected less after I installed the lift kit. Seems to better protect at stock height. FYI for those that bought the barricade adventure HD front bumper. This skid plate does work with it, but does require a small modification which I included photos of the modification. You need to cut 2 small pieces from the skid plate to allow it to fit properly. Other than that I do like this skid plate.

        Looks good too!

        We bought this in Combination with a Barricade bumper that was not compatible, but that didn’t stop us. We just had to make two minor adjustments (shown in photos).

        Awesome skid plate. They didn't spare the metal on this one. I posted a few pictures of the plate that showed what you have to do to make it compatible with the barracade adventure HD bumper but the web site won't show them. In short, you have to cut two approx 1" deep by 2" wide notches into the skid plate for the winch plate supports. Hope this helps.

        Barricade skid plate

        I needed a skid plate to replace the factory splash guard. I wanted something simple that would work with the factory bumper on my JL. The barricade was exactly what I was looking for. The installation instructions were not great but the Extreme Terrain you tube video was all I needed to get it installed. It looks great and was a good price. I couldn’t be happier.

        Really nice finish, good quality sturdy skid plate. I bought it knowing it wouldn’t fit my bumper combo, but was able to modify it to fit very easily.

        Two stars because...

        This skid plate is not compatible with the Adventure HD bumper I purchased. That said, I was able to make some modifications to the skid plate to make it fit and it looks great in the end. Make sure you note the updated application notes stating that this is designed for use with factory bumpers only. I must say Support was great about responding and trying to resolve so they get 5 stars!

      How much modification will this require for the Barricade Adventure HD Front Bumper?

      • The Barricade Off-Road Front Skid Plate is engineered to be a direct bolt-on upgrade for the original stock factory bumper however it will fit on the Barricade Trail Force HD bumper. The only issue you might run into is getting to the bolts to tighten up the bumper due to the great coverage of the skid plate.

      This will not fit the barricade HD front bumper if you have the winch plate on it. I will probably cut out a section of the skid plate so it does not interfere with barricade extreme bumper winch plate. Unless There is an alternative? 1 answer
