        4 2017 Rubicon - TerryM Installation Time: Afternoon

        Difficult to install.

        The front control arm skid plates did not come with enough fat shims for proper fit. My kit came with only 2 fat shims; it needs 4. I see later pictures that show 4 fat shims. Maybe, this is a later upgrade. The real difficulty came with the installation of both front and rear bolts. It required a great deal of effort to get the bolts to align and twist into the hole. I had to put a large strap on the ends and pull the arms into alignment on one of the front and rear control arms. Not all of the bolts required this much effort, though. 2 of the bolts went right in and 2 bolts were real bears. These plates offer great protection for the control arms, but the front bolts stick through quite a bit. This could make the threads vulnerable to rock damage. I'm going to put an extra nut on the bolt to cover the threads.

        Good protection, easy to install.

        The product is exactly as described, and installation was easy! Excellent investment since it's good protection for not much money.

        5 2014 Rubicon Unlimited - JoelE Installation Time: Afternoon

        Much stouter than I expected.

        I was expecting these skids to be thick as skids should be, but was surprised at how heavy and large they are. It will be nice to be on the trails and not have to worry when I have a hard hit, as I know I will be protected at the control arms, one of the lower parts of the under carriage. If you are playing in the rocks, these are an inexpensive must.

        Rugged Ridge control arm skids

        Great protection but first set didn't fit. Had to send them back and the second set fit fine.
