    JK 101=no dangling tips. Forum tip: next time buy rock crawler type high tuck exhaust. But MF sounds so sweet.

    I don't have much. Dent in window frame, bent exhaust tip, rock chips, and little minor scratches.

    Armour I never leave home without it. If I may put 2 cents worth in my rubicon rock had skid plates under all the essential equipment but the oil pan. I did not know this and crushed my cross over pipe. Lucky that was all and not my oil pan. One new pipe later and now armor under my oil pan, I feel better especially on the rocks. Can't see a pan under your photo. Just a word of friendly advice to save you an expense on a pipe or worse an oil pan.

    Agreed. Right now, I'm just protected with the stock belly armor. I don't do much, if any heavy duty wheeling. Just a small trail I hit every now and then. No rocks. But, there is an off road park a few hours away, that I will at some point hit up. And I'd like to have some belly armor by then. Unfortunately, the chit ain't cheap. And there are a few other upgrades I'd like to do first.
    But I do agree. Belly armor could end up saving you some hard earned cash in the long run. Some more great advice offroa798.

    Thanks. Just thought Id share. Lesson learned the hard way. Also I took for granted my jeep came with all pans I even looked and thought I saw an oil pan skid. Wow no pan. What was I thinking- LOL
