Nope. Just the oil pan. The stock skids on the new Jeeps are supposed to be pretty sufficient and my new one comes with upgraded steel bumpers and rocker guards. Of course this is just the start and I'm sure I'll be replacing some stock stuff as it proves to be insufficient :)

Evap relocation. One thing I still need to do. It has a skid but looks like a nice target right in the center. Get it above the rear axle.

John- I thought I would throw this your way. I know you've been looking at the Synergy kit and I thought this might be a good option.
http://www.rivercityoffroad.co.....0-econ.htm

Seems pretty good. He also has some good deals on Rock Krawler kits with shocks.

Um...what?

I prefer the RoundToIt philosophy. I have several projects this is successfully working on at the moment.
