Well since I did this at Paragon:



I realized that I needed to get some protection for my oil pan.....and since I have a 4cyl there aren't many options. So I went with the highly recommended Skid Row engine skid.
First thing you have to do to install this skid is to reverse your pass. side control arm bolt so that the bolt is facing inward...you will use this bolt as one of the mounting points for the skid.

Before switching:



After switching:



Now that the bolt is switched around you can slide the skid onto the bolt (do not put the nut on until the end of the install)...the bolt slides into a hole in the side of the skid.



After sliding the skid into place, swing it up so you can attach the rear mount to the t-case skid....in the instructions it says to loosely install the bracket before putting it into place, but we had better luck not attaching it at all and putting it all together after we had swung it up into place.

rear mount:



It screws in with 2 screws..the skid and the mount sandwich around the t-case skid, so it wont move up or down once in position.

After getting the back part into position, you can now mount the front mount (note the 6cyl version is a little diff. here). The mount goes from the front of the skid to a hole in the bottom of the motor mount frame, attach bolt and tighten down.



After tightening down all the bolts you will be done....it helps to place a floor jack underneath the skid while you are working on it because it is big and heavy.

Finished pic:



You can see how much coverage you get from this skid

Here's the hole in the bottom of the skid so you can change your oil without having to remove the skid every time:



View of the coverage from the front:



Side views:





I feel alot more comfortable now that I have this under my jeep

The install was pretty straight forward, and took about 10 mins. once we got the control arm bolt switched around....If you have any questions fire away Very Happy

so far no complaints...i also have their gas tank skid and it took a beating at paragon with no problems at all Very Happy

I've changed the oil, but i have that fram sure drain thingy....the hose comes right through that hole so it's easy to do, never tried it without the sure drain....the only thing i can tell you is that you should lay some sort of disposable pan on top of the skid for when you take the filter off...the oil lands on top of it but not bad enough for it to be a real complaint Wink

And yes 'drack I took the pics the next day...it was a little dark out by the time we finished up Cool
