    YJ Crawler Skid Plate

    Posted by Troy Merritt on May 20th 2022

    The Crawler is so clean and heavy duty. It took me about a half an hour to drop the tank and original thin skid plate. Had to run to the parts store for 5’ of 1/4” vacuum line for vents as one was gone and the other to short to reach. It would be relatively easy to lift the Crawler up and into place with a transmission or motorcycle jack. If you don’t have that a regular jack and a friend are definitely advised. Total time with parts run and cleaning was about 3 hours. Outstanding product Genright!

    Initial perception review. Just received this the other day. Wow! This thing is extremely heavy duty. American made quality from Genright. Definitely won’t have to worry about my fuel tank, once I get it mounted.

    This gas tank skid plate is heavy, I needed a helper to install it with the gas tank half full. That said, it was not difficult at all and the fit was perfect. Getting ready for both Rubicon and Moab this year. This is a welcome addition.
