Here is what I am trying to protect.

Protecting the E-locker was a main goal. It is tucked up and away pretty good, but it wouldn't take much to break it.

E-locker protected!

After the install. I Plasti-dipped the bolt heads. Its makes easier to get off if when I need to. Plus I love plasti-dip!

Mike, it is pretty stout. The shipped package was 22-23 pounds, so probably around 20lbs. It mounts around the drive shaft in the front and mounts to the rear end using brackets in the back. It is a very tight fit. All of the force from a hit would be transferred, but distributed to the rear end.

The sides of the skid touch the axle and the bottom rest pretty much against the diff. So it will take some of the force just not at one single spot. I really wanted to protect the e-locker also. I heard that thing is $600-700 alone just for the part. If you get under you can see it is tucked away pretty decent, but hit one rock jutting up in just the right place.
