    EVO protek skids for jku

    So im looking for new skid options. After i installed my pro rock 60s i had to trim my smittybilt skid in hopes it would work. Turns out it still got caught on the front dif and the driveshaft knuckle would hit it during articulation. I may just shave it more but am also curious about the protek setup. I email them to ask about clearance and they said since i have exhaust spacers the cross over would contact the skid.... so my question is are any of you using that system with exhaust spacers and make it work somehow? Maybe putting some washers or a spacer of somesort to give the crossover some clearance? Thanks in advance for the input. Other details incase needed for fitment are: prorock 60 axles, metalcloak 3.5 gc, adams 1350 ds, and hoping the smittybilt transfercase skid will somehow work with it as well...thanks again!

    I run the EVO skids with pro rock 60’s with no issues. I don’t use exhaust spacers

    Edit: why do you need the spacers?

    Because even with the adams ds, the ds would hit the crossover at full droop. Granted that was when i had the d30...maybe thats not the case now with the 60...ill have to check

    I would check that out, I bet you can take the spacers out. I run 1350 drive shafts and don’t touch the crossover.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
