Steel belly up skid plate for the Jeep Wrangler TJ or LJ


This is the STEEL GenRight Belly Up transfer case skid plate for a Jeep Wrangler TJ or LJ.


  • Replacing the factory skid plate with a lower-profile and more heavy duty skid plate.
  • Increases your ground clearance by up to 2-3/8" inches.
  • This high clearance, smooth bottom skid plate.
  • Precision laser cut and CNC formed from 1/4" thick cold rolled steel.
  • Stronger and twice as thick material than the stock plate to provide superior protection to your undercarriage.
  • Designed to work with the GenRight Double Triangulate rear 4 link cross member (BKT-1033).
  • 100% Made in USA!

Important NOTES:

  • Requires welding in a reinforcing brace (on the inside) to fit around your Jeeps drivetrain.
  • depending on your year and model Jeep, welding new 1/2-13 threaded bungs into the frame may be necessary.
  • A one-inch Body lift (BDL-9200) is required on all TJ and Rubicon applications for proper transfer case clearance.
  • Some exhaust modifications will be necessary.
  • Fits all TJ Wrangler models including the Rubicon and Unlimited LJ.
  • This kit provides the maximum amount of ground clearance possible, but requires some fine tuning of the rear pinion angle to eliminate driveshaft vibration.
  • A 1" engine Motor mount lift (DVL-9200) is recommended when installing this belly up skid.
  • Requires use of our transmission cross member kit (BKT-1050).
  • A slip yoke eliminator kit and CV drive shaft will be necessary.
  • Average install time is 3 hours and requires supporting the transmission and transfer case to install.
  • We offer this same skid plate in aluminum (SKP-2510) too.
  • We also offer this same skid plate for the Jeep YJ (SKP-4500) too.

    This is an excellent way to gain ground clearance and still maintain the protection for your drive line.
