      Review & Installation Video

      Hey, guys. It's Sara from And today, we have a review and install of the Barricade Front Skid Plate in Textured Black, fitting your 2010 through 2018 Jeep Wrangler JK. This skid plate features heavy-duty stainless steel construction with a textured black powder coat finish providing protection to the underside of your Jeep. So, it is worth noting that the skid plate is specifically designed for this Barricade Trail Force HD front bumper. It will not work with the factory bumper without extensive modifications. But if you already have this bumper or if you're in the market for a bumper, this skid plate is a nice add-on to give you a little extra protection.Coming in at around $15, this is a budget-friendly way to add protection to the underside of your Jeep, especially if you take your Jeep off-road frequently. I'm giving this install a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. It can be done in approximately one hour and features direct bolt up installation. All right, with that said, let's jump right into our install. For this install, we used an impact gun, 3/8 ratchet, 16-millimeter wrench, a deep and also shallow 18-millimeter socket, deep 17-millimeter socket, and a swivel.All right, so, the first step in our uninstall is to remove the bumper by removing all the 18-millimeter bolts on either side of the crash bar. And also you need to unplug your fog lights to get this off. Remove the connectors from each fog light. And then with your 18-millimeter socket, remove the nuts on the back of your crash bar. Repeat that process on the other side. With all the bolts removed and our fog lights unplug, grab the bumper and remove it from your Jeep.Now, we can grab our skid plate and the supplied hardware and get it bolted up at the back brackets behind the craft bar on the Jeep. Line up the bracket on your skid plate with the back of the crash bar on your Jeep. And using the smaller provided hardware, get it bolted up. And we're gonna leave these hand tight for now, because we do have to get it lined up in three other mounting positions. Repeat that on the other side, again, leaving at hand tight until we have all of our bolts in. So, using the provided hardware, we're gonna slide one of the larger bolts into the front crash bar here just to keep it lined up while we tighten down the bolts of the back of the skid plate. Using a 16-millimeter wrench and a 17-millimeter deep socket, tighten down the bolts at the back of your crash bar. Repeat that with the other bolt.At this point, you can remove the bolt that you put in here just to make sure it was lined up. At this point, we can grab our bumper and get it lined back up on our Jeep. Replace the hardware over your studs and tighten them down with an 18-millimeter socket. Don't forget to plug back in your fog lights. Repeat that process on the other side. All right. So once you've tightened down all the hardware holding on your bumper, that's gonna do it for the review and install of this skid plate. Remember for all things Jeep, keep it at

        Doesn’t fit all barricade bumpers

        Did not fit with the extreme HD bumper due to the lower winch mount. I was able to cut it and modify to make it work

        Looks great

        Looks great. Once I added my front bumper this is just what it needed since the factory skid plate wouldn’t fit. It matches my bumper and definitely makes my Jeep look better. Looks like it’s part of the bumper

        4 2018 Wrangler - EdwardW Installation Time: Afternoon

        Brought to replace flimsy air dam.

        The good: This is heavy duty and looks good. I just about tore off the factory air dam while backing up in tall grass. This will provide some protection and style. The bad: I had no intentions of replacing the factory front bumper and the description did and still does say iit will fit. It would have taken major modifications to the bumper that would have greatly weakened it. I either had to return the skid plate or buy a bumper that would fit. I choose the later due to the fact that getting the factory bumper off was a pain due to lock nuts and access to them. The installation was easy otherwise.

        good but

        Product is great overall, the pictures of the install are deceiving in that it appears to give protection to the steering, when in fact, once it is installed, it is above them and does not afford protection

        4 2010 Rubicon - Greg Installation Time: Afternoon

        Looks great but a little difficult to install.

        I had previously purchased this skid plate and had it on my 2007 JKU Sport with no problems and it looked great. I recently bought a 2010 Rubicon and have been swapping my upgrades over to the Rubi. Surprisingly, it was quite a bit more difficult to reinstall this skid plate on the 2010. I'm not sure why as the body styles is the same. It did not fit as flush on the 2010 as it did on the 2007 and did have to drill a hole in a spot on the crossmember for a fastener that was a preexisting hole on the 2007, but not the 2010. I also had to get some longer bolts to connect the lower attachment points to the lower frame mounting points(2). It all worked out eventually but was a little frustrating along the way. Now, were good to go and it looks great and provides nice protection for the area below the bumper there in front.

        Looks awesome

        I had a hard time finding a skid plate that would work with my DV8 front bumper. This worked well. I had to do some grinding to make it fit on the top bolts. There was not enough room between the frame and the bolt to fit the skid plate. BUT, I love the way it looks.

        Think ahead

        You should use washers on the other three, six in total, places to fill in the gap that the skid plate makes so it’s even. If not it tilts upward just a hair. Very hard to reach some bolts if you don’t have the correct set up. After installing. All I could think of is if you need to do some work under there. Like mess with the lights or wires ,etc. Man! Your gonna have to take all that off cause there’s no room to work.

        Bumper Up

        Yes, it's excellent, yes, its a good value, yes Barricade products are great - but: It will make the bumper point upwards. They should have added spacers for the the top bolt. When you add a light bar, you need to make special adjustment to have light point straight. I slid two washers behind each mounting hole when I noticed the tree tops were being lit as opposed to the road.
