If you've got a Rubicon and want to gain some clearance under the front bumper and give your swaybar disconnect housing more protection, you need one of these Rubi Skids from Expedition One. Heck, if nothing else it gives you a good excuse to cut off that stupid bash bar that hangs down under the front bumper. The skid plate itself is pretty simple, and comes with all the necessary installation hardware of course. It's available powder coated (what I got) or bare metal. Installation should take an hour, maybe less.
First things first, off with the bash bar!!
Next, remove the bottom rear bolt from the SmartBar housing as seen already removed in this photo:
Next, remove the locating bolt that goes through the rubber isolator mount.
With that bolt out, the Smartbar housing should be free to rotate around. You may need to loosen the swaybar mounts on the frame to get the housing to rotate all the way up. Flip it up and mark the plastic shield under the radiator where the housing plug hits it -- you'll need to clearance the plastic shield here. I used a regular box cutter utility knife; since the radiator is right there you'll want to be careful what you use to cut it with.
The hardware kit should include a long bolt with a jam nut threaded on. Take this bolt and use it to remount the swaybar housing to the rubber isolator, threading the bolt into the empty hole from earlier. You can see it in the top right of this photo:
You'll probably also need to relocate the wiring harness tab to a different housing bolt (something I've already done in the photo above).
