2012 Offroad Evolution Oil Pan Skid Plate

Been hearing some good things about Offroad Evolution, and particularly their Oil pan skid plate. Anyone out there have one and could share some knowledge?

BAM. Me, "wonder what that was?" Tom, "pretty sure it was the top of something coming into contact with the bottom of your Jeep."

I just installed mine today and it's very solid, and well made. The install is pretty straight forward. The only thing is the 2 bolts towards the rear of the pan is not fat finger friendly, so if you have sausage fingers like me, it can be a pain to get those last 2 bolts in. Other than that, I'm very happy with it.

We have sold quite a bit of these. We also have a set coming for our JK. They are great and the price is easy to swallow as well! We have zero complants about these. They are a great option...

Cool, if you find a trick for getting the 2 bolts tightened up please post up. I got mine relatively tight with a pair of needle nose pliers (there's not enough room for a wrench or socket at all).

Mine have several nicks in the powdercoat from rocks that just happened to go airborne during some obstacles. Could they have dented/cracked the OEM pan? IDGAF because I have the Evo skid. I have a tendency to push my limits and do dumb shit in general, like trying to follow a 6" LA lift TJ with selectables, 4.56s, and 35s through the park. (That was before the RK lift)

I have the full Protec system and strongly recommend it. Ask Jason- it was almost the first thing I did on my rig. I don't hesitate to try an obstacle because I'm confident everything is well protected.

On the other hand, if you have or need exhaust spacers, the Protec is tucked up so tight that the passenger side of the crossover tube can rattle against the crossmember skid at specific engine loads. Some have been able to tweak everything to avoid it. I'm not that lucky, but I also haven't put much effort into it. Just be advised- it may take some fine tuning if you run the Protec system with exhaust spacers.

I'm looking for my '12 also, this one looks good. I wonder what the weight is though - lightness is key for me. I'm also looking at the Asfir since it is aluminum.

IIRC, I think the weight on the shipping box said 13 lbs. but I could be wrong.
