M.O.R.E. Oil Pan/ Trans. Skid - Anyone Using This?

I did a search - no luck (I still think we should have to click a button certifying that we've done so).

The company is Mountain Off-Road Enterprises. It's a Quadratec special for $275 - good price if it's decent quality. I'm getting ready to start trail riding this spring and an oil pan skid is #1 on my list of must-have trail gear along with a CB and sliders (more questions on those to follow, although I've had better luck with the search feature there).

It might help to know that I don't plan on hard-core wheeling (i.e. hopefully no full-weight drops on the skid), and that I will be running the stock Rubi BFG's for the next year, after which I will be going to a 2.5" lift and 35's. Trail riding will be mostly in the north east.

Thanks in advance for any input.

Also.. I have been holding off out of sheer luck on the oil pan skid.

I have been very luck to have zero damage.. the stock skids and disarmament have taken a beating and held up fine to multiple drops and full weight.

After some research I think I am coming with Claytons oil pan trans skids and their cross member.

They are in CT also ans a great company with good sales and customer support people !

i have the M.O.R.E. Oilpan/Transmission skid for JKunlimited. It made me stop worrying about the ledges that have outcoppings of 3' or greater coming into contact with the (very) weak steel of the oilpan on my JK. It also covers and replaces the OEM tranny skid-bar thingy. If you're running a 12 or newer, consider the crossover pipe you've got ...
I wrapped my crossover in high quality muffler /header wrap tape that prevents it clunking when extreme jolts make the skid contact it....
the skid is a great price for a very sturdy , well designed and capable of taking a hard hit piece of hardware. Worth every penny.

I have no idea why that link didn't come up... I searched 3 or 4 different word combos, too! Oh well, thanks for the link!
