Hooligan Offroad Skids

I just got a new skid system from a company out of Denver called Hooligan Offroad. Their skid system is stout and has some features that are pretty awesome. The oil pan, belly pan, and gas tank skids are one smooth surface front to back with no bolts hanging down. There's a door to access the front drive shaft for trail replacements and the heavy duty crossmember is made out of 1/4 and is beefy! Contact Josh at Hooligan Offroad if your interested.

Guessing you are in no way affiliated with the company either...

Whoa, IDK man. I see a ton of trapped heat and no where for debris, water, or mud to drain. That is a fire waiting to happen.

If that is all 1/4" steel, it must weight a couple hundred pounds. If it is aluminum, I wouldn't expect the welds to hold up to hard hits.

Looks shiny though.

Its $1800 plus shipping and im actually not associated with company other than he used my Jeep for instructions. Just a nice guy trying to start something new.

As for heat I monitor it like crazy and I'm yet to see any difference in transmission temps and engine temps are maybe 1-2 degrees higher.

The fire thing is only a problem if you don't maintain and clean your stuff.

And he uses a new crossmember that's included in the 1800 which is the part that's made out of 1/4 everything else is 3/16.

Does it completely replace the factory gas tank skid? or just bolt to it.

I've been looking for a complete replacement since my factory skid is getting pretty mangled.

Unfortunately in your situation it just covers the factory skid.

well, @Mark915 beat me to my immediate concern after the initial," wow; those are a really slick, stout-looking skid system!" was the 'notch' for the front driveshaft. I can verify and confirm my OEM and definately my Woods 1310 front shaft has had it's yellow sticker scraped by the automatic transmission fluid pan bolt once or twice during suspension downtravel and twisted; the green line





doesn't leave that stock shaft's boot any hope and might really muck-up a driveshaft if everything lined-up right. But man, the smooth bottom &the xmember et.al are swanky cool/


it's uncouth but we don't care 'round here; mind me askin what it costs?

edit:disregard: I see the price, thanks. It is quite fair, actually; I wish you could hold-up some photos of the crossmember for us

Looks like the rear shaft would have the same issue. My stock rear Driveshaft used to eat chunks out of my stock gas tank skid until I bfh clearanced the tank. That gas tank skid is too close to the rear shaft IMO

You're highly unlikely to find a complete replacement since that skid also holds up/integral part of your fuel tank hanger.Companies don't want the liability.

Most take off the skid (including dropping fuel tank) and hammer it back out flat - then add a new, more stout skid over top of it.

I ended up going a different route and moved my gas tank to the rear of the rig.

I did find is that there are two companies making complete replacements.
