Review & Install Video

I'm Ryan from, 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

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.

    Skidplate fits great and was pretty easy to install. It was a little difficult to get to some of the bolts but jack stands or a lift would have helped with that. Instructions have you start in the back and work forward. It was much easier for me to attach the front brackets and skidplate to the front brackets first, then attach the center bolt at the cross member.

    M.O.R.E Skid Plate Fixes JK Exposure

    I received my M.O.R.E. skid plate via standard free shipping faster than expected and was able to install it just before a trip to the Mojave Desert here in So. Cal. My 2013 Wrangler came stock with a narrow transverse bar optimistically referred to as a transmission skid plate, and no protection for the oil pan or trans cooler lines. The item was well packaged, but there were some small chips in the powder coating on a couple of edges. No problem, I applied a dab of primer and paint prior to installation. The plate components are nicely formed and welded. A generous opening is provided to reach the oil pan drain, and two additional openings at the exhaust crossover should facilitate removing any accumulated debris from that area. A steel rib welded to the top side of the plate is designed to contain oil change drips and provide reinforcement for the plate. The instruction sheet is very basic but easy to follow if you have a little wrenching experience. The M.O.R.E. video for this product provides a good visual of the workspace before, during, and after installation. Most important tip: don't tighten any bolts until the whole assembly is fitted in place. Contrary to the printed instructions, I found it easier (for one man job) to install front brackets and attach the plate to them, then do the rear attachment points. The plate felt very solid and secure after installation. The Mojave trip covered deep sand, rocky slopes, and seasonal washes. Returned with some minor scuffing to the skid plate, and a bigger scuff where a rear arm frame bracket got temporarily hung up on a rock. Everything stayed put, and it was nice knowing that all the previously exposed stuff had some protection from hazards seen and unseen.

    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.

    Great protection and looks, but hits exhaust.

    Love how it looks and definitely will provide some much needed protection. Installation was pretty straight forward after watching a couple videos. If installing by yourself, a small floor jack with a short 2x4 on top to lift the skid plate really helps. I installed the front mounts first and then used the jack to lift the skid plate into place. Installed middle back bolt (used factory bolt, I liked the washer on the factory bolt better then the one supplied with the kit) and then I installed the front two bolts. After that I installed the rear drivers side bolt and nut and then drilled the hole and installed the rear passenger side bolt. I tightened everything up and then I noticed the interference with the exhaust on the passenger side. M.O.R.E. needs to address this issue as it's mentioned over and over in posts and you can see it in pictures. I'm going to modify the skid plate instead of adding washers. I would recommend this skid plate, but I'd also recommend modifying so it doesn't hit the exhaust before installing.

    Yep. Front first

    Yep, as everyone else said, do the following... 1. Watch the videos first, but do the front before the back. 2. Don't tighten up anything until everything is in place. 3. Check clearance before and after tightening. 4. Drive it, then double-check the torque on everything. No issues, very rugged part, perfect finish (though it won't stay that way, haha), and a fairly easy and straight-forward install.

    Updated review

    I bought this skid plate over a year ago for my 2011 JKU Rubicon. It has worked very well and has saved my tranny and transfer case from some very large rocks which I slammed into. Well worth the money. However, changing oil is a real problem. Even if I leave the drain plug in the pan hole, the oil runs down the entire length of the plate and then runs off and makes a very large mess. Solution: weld two pieces of metal to extend the existing V shaped piece in the center to the edge of the skid plate. If you don't weld, try using JB weld or epoxy to install the V wing extensions. You can also try cutting a better groove so the oil drains directly down into your catch container. I've changed the oil twice on my JKU and it left a mess both times with over 3 qt of used oil splashed all over the concrete floor. Hopefully, you can install this fix before you install it. I have to remove the plate and do this so I don't have a mess to clean up. 2nd item: On my vehicle, the side of the plate touches the exhaust pipe. Solution: a) Trim the side metal so it has more clearance or b) Install a 1/4" shim between the skid plate and the nut so you have more clearance. If you use the shim, you will need 4 shims, one for each bolt. I do recommend this skid plate, but you need to really test fit it to ensure it fits correctly.

    Solid Product

    Install was a bit cumbersome to do alone, but not bad. Bolts are a bit to long near the motor mounts, I added washers to prevent the bolts from bottoming out on the motor mounts. I'll going to replace them with shorter ones. All in all took a couple hours alone in my garage, not jacked up or anything. But man this thing is solid!

    Nothing like Armor to allow you to sleep at night

    Installed easy by myself with some ramps. Hardest thing is to loosen up the drivers side engine mount bolts, not my room to turn the nut. Excellent fit; I had to cut/grind a small notch out where my exhaust turns across the back side to avoid contact. I suggest watching the you-tube video prior for some tips. I does collect mud and requires some good cleaning after a weekend run.

    Good buy!

    The item arrived in good shape with only minimal scuffing from transport but considering it is a skid plate, that is not an issue:) I have a 2010 JK 4 door and where the support arms are bolted into the engine mounts, you need one 1 inch bolt for each side and the package only came with one so I had to go out and buy another. After install, the plate does touch the exhaust in one spot and I think this may become an issue. The plate is tough and I installed it on my own, it was pretty easy though I did end up with some bloody knuckles but that is normal for me. I will be honest, I did not drill the 3rd hole on the cross member as instructed yet and it seems really stable despite it. It did change the sound of the Jeep a little but there is no vibration etc.

    My Mechanic said this is the best skip plate he has ever seen.

    Researched this skip plate for my 2015 Rubicon, and sent the reviews and product spec to my mechanic. We both liked the product and my mechanic especially liked the construction and care full attention to detail. He was impressed with the quality of the product. I purchased the skip plate and he installed it in less than an hour, since he has all the necessary equipment. This is a great product and with the free shipping a great bargain plus it looks great. I will be buying the other products from ET in the future.

    Fit really well

    Only thing was the bolts for the motor mount were too long should be 1.25 long, and the carriage bolts should be replaced with a hex hex head bolt, cause there is no room to turn the lock nut from the inside of the skid plate. Other than that it lined up and fit great.

    The first protection you should get!

    This was the first functional modification I made to my new jeep. The rubicon model comes with skids, but somehow decided to omit and oil pan or trans skid. Considering the oil pan hangs out this skid is a must! Great coverage. Put it on before my first trail run and so glad I did. Came out with scrapes all down it, which would surely have been a dented oil pan. Drain hole works great, no mess and just wipe out the inside a little after. Definitely wouldn't wheel without this.

    It is easy for DIY. Just take your time. It took me about a couple of hours, this being my first time. I could have finished in 1 hour if I wanted to. Looks great after finishing the install.

    It fits well and is very stout. Install was pretty easy. It was missing a nut and a washer which I'm sure is an isolated incident. I have yet to change the oil on my 2014 and though it does have a deflector on the skid I'm not sure if it will do the job of containing the oil. I will assume it will but I will be careful on the 1st oil change so I don't have a mess. I would by it again as it is a quality skid.
