XJ Engine/Transmission Skid Plate Install

Author: ThePhantum

XJ Engine/Tranny SkidAfter installing my transfer case skid, I installed this engine/transmission skid plate from Skid Row on my 97 XJ.

This write-up describes how to install this skid on a Jeep TJ. Even though that is on a TJ, there were no major differences in the process. The only thing I have to add is that there are two part numbers for this plate on an XJ. One for a 10" cross-member the other for a 14" cross-member. You can see in the sketch where I measured it.

For my application it was the 14" cross-member…easy, huh?
