If you're going to really get out on the trails or off in the rocks-- there's nothing that will change the rhythm of your day quite like losing your rear shocks or mounts. These rear shock & lower control arm mount skids are designed to give a smooth ramp up and over obstacles while also offering protection and reinforcement to your rear shocks and your lower control arm mounts on your rear axle. The rear shock/rear lower control arm mount on the Wrangler happens to be some of the lowest hanging fruit on the entire vehicle for rocks and obstacles to catch on -- since they hang down lower then anything else on the axle.

These skid plates are laser cut from a combo of 1/4" and 3/16" thick high strength HRPO steel, and CNC formed for a precision fit. The bolt on layer of UHMW (included!) that is located beneath the steel skid also makes it more difficult to get hung up on rocks since it's slippery and impact resistant -- it's the same material we use underneath our belly skids! Installation does require removal of the rear shocks/lower control arm bolts on the axle end and uses existing holes and hardware to attach.

 

These JL Rear Shock and Control Arm Skid Plates are sold as a pair of left and right skids that ship bare metal and will require painting or coating unless ordered otherwise.

JL Rear Shock Skid Plates

Just installed the JL Rear Shock Skid Plates on my 2021 392 Wrangler. Install was done with basic hand tools without ever lifting the jeep off the ground. Install took about 30 minutes and the fit was perfect. My jeep is now well protected with the JLU Aluminum Belly Skids - Factory 392 Hemi and UHMW Kit. The quality of Next Venture Motorsports products are some of the highest quality parts on the market.

They invited me and my whole crew in for a tour of the facility on our way to Moab. These guys not only produce amazing armor for your Jeep, they are really good people. So, I’ve been running their rear diff skid for 9 months and it has easily held up to everything I’ve thrown at it.

After this go around with Moab and Holy cross, the diff skids did their job and protected my Jeep. My rear aluminum bumper performed phenomenally on the trail!

Can’t say enough about Dan and his ultra skilled team! Dan was able to get us in for a skidplate with UHMW & sliders for our JKUR. The fit, finish and quality are just out of this world! Can you say “stacked dimes”? Absolutely gorgeous welds…

2 years later I'm writing this review. I've beaten the crap out of this thing hitting rocks, winching, draging it down obstacles, and now exposed to the Florida elements. The bumper looks like it did the day they sent it. You will not find a better company to work with that cares about their clients and their products!

Without a doubt, Next Venture Motorsports is my first stop for epic Jeep parts. Their JL aluminum front and rear featherweight bumpers are solidly built, easy enough to install, and crafted to perfection. I can't wait for more products for my 2 door JL!

AWESOME quality and customer service. 2021 Jeep 4xe! Return customer and will return again. Thank You Dan!

I like it because it lets you use factory fog lights if you want. They also have a featherweight aluminum option that doesn't have holes for fogs and is essentially a stubby bumper. I am very pleased with all of their stuff. [JL/JT Adventure Series Bumper]
