What models have the new mounts. I have a 2021 Rubicon unlimited with the 2.0 and so does my friend. they were ordered in late November and I picked it up December 30th. I ordered the Artec Aluminum Fully belly skid plate and it fit perfectly. The engine brackets bolted right up.

I think it's just the 3.6 from the people I see talking about it.

I’m bummed man. I need the engine/transmission skid. I wheel hard no lift. That piece of armor has saved my ass on many occasions.
I hope we see solutions sooner than later.

Has anyone confirmed it is just the 2021 3.6 that has the changes? Is the 2021 2.0 the same as previous year? Looking to buy some skids soon and wanted to make sure I get ones that will fit. If it helps at all I can take pictures and measurements under my 2021 2.0 to verify.

Yeah I'm also curious about this. Or if things did change, when? Is it all 2021s or only 2021s after a certain build date? Are there any pictures of the differences so we can check?

Also an interesting question. Mine is an early 2021...so I would check if I knew what to check. I have a feeling it's not easy to spot visually.

Yeah, like I have an early 2021 as well and pre2021 diff skids fit, while others had issues with their later 2021s

Here's mine:
Built oct 2020
2door, V6, manual, no etorque or whatever

They look identical other than it looks like I have an extra bracket on the top right of the picture (but it's probably because I'm zoomed out more)

Talking with Artec 4 weeks ago, they said the 2021 change only affects 3.6 engines. FCA changed the motor mounts to be the same as on a 2.0, so it was a move to reduce the size of the parts bin.

And before you ask, no, you can't just use the brackets from a 2.0 skid plate because everything else is different so they don't match up.

You sir are a gentleman and a scholar?
