    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review of the M.O.R.E., or Mountain Off-Road Enterprises' Oil and Transmission Skid Plate fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. Skid plates are of course important to have on your Jeep when you're off-road because they'll protect the soft underbelly of your Jeep. If you do get damage to your transmission, your oil pan, or a couple of the other areas that you wanna make sure you have protection, it'll end your day really quickly. But aside from actually protecting all of those parts, having a skid plate can make it possible and then give you the confidence to get over obstacles that you otherwise wouldn't try. So having a skid plate is definitely a good thing when you're in an off-road situation. I especially like this one from M.O.R.E. because it protects both the oil pan, and the transmission, and it does it in a one-piece skid plate so there are no seams to get hung up on, or any other weak points. This kit comes complete with everything you need to get it installed, and I think it's priced right. This skid plate is made from three-sixteenths inch steel, and it weighs in at 50 pounds. This thing is beefy. It's gonna provide a ton of protection. Along with of course the flat skid plate bottom, it does have a spine welded down the center of it to give you some additional strength. It has this oil drain hole bored into it. And more importantly, it has a V welded onto it to catch the oil as it comes out of the Jeep and direct it into that hole, instead of having all the oil just laid right up on top of the skid plate like some of the other ones I know. That will definitely make your oil changes a little bit easier and cleaner. This skid plate installs into the Jeep very easily with the included hardware and brackets. It actually will attach right onto your motor mount and onto your crossmember, meaning that it's going to be very, very strong. This skid plate does require you to drill one hole in your Jeep, but it's just in the crossmember, and that additional hardware will provide even more strength. This thing is really beefy, really well built, and very, very functional. As I mentioned, even though you do have to drill one hole, this installation is very easy with all of the included brackets and hardware. The first step is to remove your factory transmission skid plate, if you have one installed, and then you can go to installing this skid plate. The first thing you're going to do is attach the two holes onto the crossmember, while supporting the front end of the skid plate with a jack stand. From there you can drill your third hole into the crossmember and attach that hardware, leaving everything a little bit loose. After that, you'll remove the nut from your motor mount bolt, install your bracket, then install the included hardware up at the motor mount to give some additional strength. And finally, attach your newly installed bracket onto the skid plate, again with all of the included hardware. As usual, once everything is installed, you can go through and tighten down all of the bolts and you're finished with the installation. M.O.R.E. says this will probably take you about three hours to install, and that's probably about right. You may be able to do it a little bit quicker. There aren't any specialty tools that you'll need to get this job done, but of course a center punch with a drill and a good set of drill bits will speed things along. Like I said at the beginning, I think this is priced right. It is a little bit expensive, however, for the quality, for the strength, for the protection, and sometimes most importantly for the confidence that having this skid plate on your Jeep will give you when you're off-road, I think it is completely worth the price. So if you're looking to protect your oil pan and your transmission in a one-piece skid plate that doesn't have any seams, or weak points, or to get hung up on, I definitely recommend taking a look at this skid plate. It's very strong, very well built, and includes all of the hardware and brackets you need to get it installed, and it will give you the confidence to attack obstacles on the trail that you never would have without this protection. So that's my review of the M.O.R.E. Oil and Transmission Skid Plate fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs, that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

    Construction. M.O.R.E. offers under carriage protection for manual transmission JK's without a transmission skid plate. It also equips your automatic transmission JK with a more durable skid plate than provided from the factory. The black powder coated 3/16 an inch thick steel plate protects the under carriage of your Wrangler while you tackle the off-road!

    Protection. M.O.R.E.'s skid plate protects your transmission, oil pan, and exposed exhaust cross over tube from unforgiving off-road obstacles, preventing costly damage.

    Installation. This Oil pan/transmission case skid plate is designed to bolt to where the factory automatic transmission skid plate would be. It also uses motor mount brackets that bolt to the motor mounts to secure skid plate to the Jeep's undercarriage.

    Application. This M.O.R.E. Oil/Transmission Skid Plate is designed to fit on the 2007-2018 Wrangler JK models.

    Please Note. This Skid Plate is not compatible on models equipped with a diesel engine.

      Getting Ready for Rubicon trail

      This Skid Plate when on easily, about 1:30 for two of use. Have not taken on the trail yet, but I purchased because I will be doing the Rubicon trail in early August. It is a very sturdy product that covers the engine and transmission completely.

      Thick Heavy Duty

      Its obvious how much this plate will protect your jeep as you pull it out of the package. Heavy Duty that's for sure. Installation took about 3.5 hours in the garage. Front Driver side motor mount was a little challenging with the limited space. Install was good and would do it again. Feel much more confident when off road. Very Satisfied.

      M. O. R. E skid plate

      First thought was that it’s a solid piece of metal. looked good, an install was easy. Did it myself in about 40 mins. had to trim a small portion that was was rubbing on exhaust pipe when accelerating but a couple mins on the grinder and done. Haven’t wheeled yet but looked like it will do the job.

      more skid plate

      It us a very heavy duty skidplate that was easy to install. It fit my jk 2013 4 door. It covers a large area underneath the oil pan down to where the stock crossmember sits. The only thing i had to add was some rubber between the support arms and the front lower skid plate. This stops any residual vibration from the motor and makes it much quieter. I will recommend it to friends.

      Good, but...

      This skid is solidly made and of high quality. The big issue I have is that you have to remove the forward cross member to install it. The cross member ties in right behind the frame connection for the lower control arms. After installing and test driving, the handling is very soft compared to when the cross member was installed. I ended up cutting the old cross member into 2 pieces and welding them to the sides of the skid so I could bolt them back on in place of the cross member. Worked like a champ but they should add brackets to do this from the factory without welding!

      Great product for the price

      I am really happy with this oil/trans skid plate, which i definitely could have used a year ago when a rock destroyed my front driveshaft and underbelly. Anyways, the only negative thing i would have to say is that at low RPM's moving slowly i started hearing a low grumble noise which does not alarm me. I assume the noise comes from the engine mount it bolts up to. Easy and fun to install maybe a few hours for someone for basic tool skills.

      Great protection

      This skid plate was easy to install and fit perfect. Some people were saying that they had to do some slight mods to get it to clear the exhaust crossover but mine cleared just fine. Over the past weekend I was roading and had a few rocks scrape the skid plate and the plate did exactly what it was designed to do. I don't know if the rocks would have hit my oil pan or tranny but the added peace of mind makes the purchase all worth it. The only down part would be that it does seem to collect some debris. Install was less than an hour. Make sure you have a step bit and the drilling will be a breeze and start with the front brackets.

      Covers all the critical stuff

      I was looking for a sturdy skid plate and didn't want to buy separate plates for everything. This one starts way under the motor and bolts to the engine mount bolts. It then extends all the way to the cross member, covering my engine oil pan, auto trans lines and auto trans pan. Very nice unit for about $300. Helps to have a second person with a pin bar from up above to move the engine mount to one side while you get the bolts started from down below.

      I was impressed with the quality of the skid plate and the engineering of it. I had to make a minor tweak to the angle of the front left side bracket but it fit like a charm. If I dent this it was a bad move on my part. I wll see later how the oil comes out but it looks like it will be OK.

      M.O.R.E Skid Plate Teraflex lift

      I just installed an M.O.R.E. Skid Plate on my 2017 JK Unlimited with a 3" Teraflex lift. The good....It looks great it's stout, everything lined up and installed easily. I did it alone in the garage, I didn't need to use any jack stands. I did start at the front, I was able to lay under my lifted jeep with the skid plate on my stomach wasn't that heavy. The Bad... My lift, Teraflex, has about a 2" exhaust extension on the passenger side. This lowers the cross over pipe from passenger side to drivers side. I talked to Teraflex they said this is so the exhaust doesn't hit the front driveshaft during extreme flexing. The problem is I had to install some spacers, just over a 1/4 ", to keep the exhaust from hitting the skid plate and causing a vibration. This leaves a gap at the rear of the skid plate. Probably would be ok going forward, just a little lower than necessary. Backing up could be a problem, might catch on something. M.O.R.E. is aware of this, they said most people use some type of spacer, wish they had mentioned it in their ad. I'm sure it varies from Jeep to Jeep, mine requires just over a 1/4" spacer just so I have enough clearance to slide a couple sheets of paper under the exhaust. I am considering welding a piece of round bar to the rear of the plate so there's no opening to catch. I'll check with a muffler shop to see if they can do anything first. Kind of makes me mad it's advertised as a simple bolt on install, I shouldn't have to modify it to fit.

      Solid, heavy plate

      This thing is a beast! It is definitely going to make you feel completely secure over rocks, trees, whatever comes your way. I took a star off because it touches the exhaust as it crosses over one of the vertical supports on the side of the skid. I've read some people space it out with washers, others grind down the support to give it some clearance and others use exhaust spacers (though I don't know how a spacer would help because it looks like it would just push the exhaust into the skid even more). I am going to try to use some washers under the three bolts at the cross member hoping that will do it but as it is now it is vibrating against the exhaust any time you put strain on the motor (like when you turn or go slowly up a hill). Overall a very good product but for the price, I'm a little bit disappointed that I have to make alterations to make it work.
