JKS Lower Control Arm Mini Skid Plates for XJ/MJ/ZJ/TJ (OGS115)
JKS MiniSkids are essentially miniature skid plates for the lower suspension arm brackets on the front axle. The clever design spans the front of each bracket to create a boxed structure for increased strength and integrity.
When properly welded to the axle and OE brackets, JKS MiniSkids prevent damage and deformation, and provide much-needed protection of the caster adjustment bolts and suspension arm bushings.
JKS MiniSkids are laser cut from thick 1/4" plate steel and folded for increased rigidity and proper clearance of the suspension arms. They are supplied in raw form and require painting following installation
Prevent Damage to Vulnerable OE Suspension Brackets
The lower suspension arm brackets on the front axle utilize cam bolts to adjust caster and pinion angle. Once damaged, it becomes virtually impossible for the vehicle to be aligned to factory specifications. Unfortunately, the brackets are extremely vulnerable to damage and frequently contact obstacles off-road, causing the thin-gauge metal to weaken and deform.
Featured Technology & Benefits
- Ultra-protective design utilizes thick 1/4" plate steel construction that is folded for extra rigidity and proper clearance
- Prevents misalignment of adjustment cam bolts to ensure reliable caster settings
- Spans OE bracket to form a much stronger boxed structure
