Skid plates for LS conversions

Hello, I just picked up a Jeep Rubicon with a LSX427. Curious to see if anyone makes a skid system that will work with LS conversions? Donít like the engine/oil pan/trans/transfer case being exposed. Any thoughts?

Most skids work fine with a LS conversion. You may need to modify the front skid mounts where the attached to the original motor mounts.

Also the exhaust can be a issue depending on how the routed it. Most of the ones we do in house will clear just fine.

Hard to believe that it does not make as much power or TQ out of the box as the LS3's that we have. Especially for 12k.

I didn't even think about the LS7, those things are screamers and probably not the best choice for a Jeep. I was figuring some kind of stroker LS3.
