JLU Belly Skid Replacement UHMW Kit (UHMW Only)


Regular price$799.99
  • Estimated Lead Time: 3-4 Weeks

Want something impact resistant and slippery to help your Jeep slide over obstacles? We've got you covered. The UHMW material we have selected for this kit isn't just any plastic -- it is known for its very low coefficient of friction (it's comparable to Teflon®), high abrasion/wear resistance (10 times more resistant to abrasion than carbon steel), natural lubrication, and high impact strength.

These UHMW pieces are CNC cut to precisely match our JLU Aluminum Belly Skids. This kit includes enough UHMW to cover the entirety of our skid plate system on the bottom, and the additional hardware you'll need to attach it.

Currently available in the listed configurations, we are also working on JT Diesel, JT Gladiator, and 2 Door JL applications.

JLU 2.0 I4 and 3.6 V6 UHMW kits weigh in at 24 lbs
JLU 3.0 EcoDiesel UHMW kits weigh in at 29 lbs

Just love this and the low weight combined with UHWM plastic is amazing.

Todd Karmes
High Quality Skids

So it starts with the packaging to understand the pride NVM has in their products. Never and I mean never have I had parts delivered that were packed so well and with so much care. That should be all you need to know on what I found inside. The welds and mounting were perfect. I love the light weight of the aluminum but clearly there is no sacrifice with strength. I do recommend getting the UHMW kit with it, or it could be a bit of work to get it on later. It all came assembled for me and I checked for loose hardware and found none.

Slick and smooth

I have not yet had the opportunity to try them on the rocks although during assembly I slid the skid across the concrete and it seemed to move smooth I’ve had steel skids and plain aluminum skids and they are Grindy and loud sounding across rocks and concrete the UHMW material will be great as long as it can stay against skid during drags and bumps but I won’t be working them that hard mostly thanks

Skids work great, the UHMW lets it slide of the rocks when otherwise you would be high centered. Installation was straight forward with a few pieces of missing hardware I got a local bolt supply store.


Thank you for the honest review! Sorry to hear you were missing some hardware. We recently revamped our QA/QC checking process with the intent of reducing the chance of hardware issues like that for folks moving forward. We'll keep doing our best to improve and thank you for the feedback!

Really glad you like the UHMW! We have loved it on the shop Jeeps as well!

Buy them!

The UHMW is awesome, slick stuff. I don't know if it cushions a little, but today I set down hard on my new skids.

The wife's face twisted I had to get out for a look. As I pulled through a rock garden she covered her ears expecting a huge squeeze and me to fight the rocks.

I slid right over them, and couldn't even hear a squeak over my diesel clattering.

It's well worth the investment!

Why next venture?

parts inspired by the trail

Our team got into the game after rock crawling, wrenching, fabricating and being inspired to design and build parts for what we love to do: hit the trail.

what our customers are saying


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!

My rear Next Venture diff skid takes a beating! Best rear diff skid available. Well done!

Lee Bower

Quality is amazing, items fit perfectly. Couldn't be more happy; these are gonna help out a lot between the tons and LS1.

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!

Jeffrey Smith

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]
