I agree. I wish it didn’t lose what it does. It’s not tons but even at an 1” or so they could have done better. I think the more extreme you wheel the less that skid is for you.
I don't think I am extreme, but I am not into losing clearance.

Depending on droop amount your driveshaft will contact the extra cross member, and the quadratec skid plate it hangs down lower. I cut mine in half and added reinforcement and i still hit it. I hit it before coilovers too
I cut the Quadratec skids while I had them too. There is a lip on the front of the skid right where the drive shaft droops. Cut that off and no longer had DS interference at full droop.

However the Evo skid is much better in this regard - no driveshaft interference to speak of.

Take a look at ASFIR’s skid If your going aluminum. It uses the factory crossmember and has taken huge hits on my recently totaled Jeep. It will be going back on my new Jeep. It’s very affordable. Not made in America, it’s made in Israel. I highly recommend it.

Been researching for days now on which plate to get, and I think ASFIR is the one. Just watched their install video and it's very straightforward, doesn't look to lose any clearance, maintains the cross members. Affordable too.

How long did yours take to arrive from Israel?

Just verifying also that it fits USDM models? It says that it was developed for UK spec.

It only took about 3 days to get it from Israel. I don’t know if that’s the norm or not. They have really good customer service.

Yep, they already got back to me. They are fully booked for production right now, but can still be ordered 6-8 weeks delivery time. I don't mind waiting for quality product.
