Default Oil pan Skid

I have a 2000 TJ with the 4.0. I am thinking about getting an oil pan skid. What have you guys tried? Likes/ dislikes.

Medic or Nth Degree Mobility

Medic is better IMO you can slid down it and it offers tranny protection.

I bought Nth Degree Mobility skid this summer before heading out to Camp Jeep in PA. I love it to say the least :)
It's made of 3/16" thick metal it seems yet it's bent to very tight specs to hug your oilpan just right. At first I thought it was not going to fit but after spending a few hours of wrestling it in place, it fit with just mm to spare :) So by covering your vulnerable parts it saves you a lot of weight that full underbody skids give you.

If your style of driving involves pointing the Jeep and flooring it till you get there not caring of whats in the way, then you probably need a full length oilpan skid like Skidrow, Warn or Medic to protect your entire underside. But if you just need protection for your oilpan from an accidental contact with a rock while you crawl around em, then Nth Degree skid will work just fine. Not that it's not heavy duty enough to hold your Jeep up if our high center on it or something.

Medic x3.

Great guy to deal with. In fact, my TJ is the one photographed on the website for the 97-02 shortarm model.

The powdercoated pics on the site are of my 2000 TJ (The yellow one). Yours must be the uncoated pics of the 98.

I got the skid row. Jim hates it when he has to change oil, but after seeing how he bent it on some rocks up in DI last year he was glad it was there.

One side does, the other attaches to a contol arm bracket.
Someday I might even drive my jeep over to Dan's and you could look at it.
