    Evo Mfg Protek skid plates on my JT

    First mods are showing up for my Gladiator. I ordered the Evo Mfg Protek front axle disconnect and engine/xmsn skid plates for it. After looking more closely, I might end up getting the exhaust skid as well. The FAD skid plate is the only one that showed up so far, and I just finished installing it. Pretty easy install, maybe 15 minutes. It’s beefy and should help protect the part of the steering stabilizer as well as the FAD and the area it mounts to.

    The engine and auto xmsn skid plate gets here Friday, and I’ll be installing it immediately with plans to hit the trails for the first time on Saturday.

    That looks great and almost a must with the JT. I think you just made me spend money!

    The itch is killing me. Living in PA now though, I won’t need anything as hardcore as my last JK was with the double throw down suspension. In AZ it was nice to have it because I could bomb down fire roads at 70mph to get to the trail head, instead of bouncing around at 35mph or less. I plan on getting the 4.5” or 6.5” Evo Mfg suspension kit that Mel has on his Gladiator. What ever will let me run 40s without tearing the flares off.

    Brown Santa just dropped off the Protek engine skid! I’ll likely get to work on it in the morning.

    FYI to everyone with a Gladiator. The engine mounts are different, and JL skids that use the engine mounts as a mounting point for your engine oil pan skid plate will not fit.

    Were they sold as a JL skid or a JL/JT skid?

About us
“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.
