Skid Plates for STOCK JKUR?

Have taken my stock '17 JKUR out on a couple of runs with a local club. HUGE FUN! Here in New England, we have lots of rocks that stick up out of the ground in the trails, so one picks one's way through, trying not to come down on anything fragile.

What do you guys like for skid plates to protect the underside of the Jeep? I think I have a gas tank skid plate already, but do you like to use skid plates for the transfer case, transmission, oil pan, etc.?

Jk's come factory with a decent gas tank skid, unless you're pounding on that pretty hard regularly you wont need to replace it. Look into a modular skid system. Something like the MORE belly skid or the Synergy full skid if you want to spend some more money lol.

I have the transmission and oil pan skid plates from Off-road evolution. Super easy to bolt on and you don't have to buy everything all at once. The gas tank skid will hold up but eventually will look like a potato chip. Another thing to consider is a cross member skid or upgrade it. I've bent my stock cross member and have a few friends who bent theirs as well
