Jeep TJ Transfer Case Skid Plate High Clearance Steel Wrangler TJ/LJ TNT Customs. High Clearance transfer case belly skid, skid plate for Wrangler TJ or LJ Unlimited. TNT New High Clearance Belly skid is perfect for those looking for added protection and clearance. Jeep Wrangler TJ and LJ Unlimited’s come with a factory belly pan that leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to clearance for the trail. With our High Clearance Belly skid you’ll gain 1 3/4 inch of clearance on 97-02 models and nearly 3 inch on 03-06 model years, a noticeable difference when playing in the rocks.
Why the difference in model years? The 97-02 TJs only came with the small 231 Tcase. In 2003, Jeep released the Rubicon model which had a much larger 241OR tcase, which forced Jeep to use a lower hanging belly pan. To cut costs, used the same belly pans on all 03-06 models.
Recommended use of 1 inch Body lift, 1 inch Motor lift, SYE for the 231 and CV driveshaft
