So I’ve been surfing all nooks and crannies of the interwebs and can’t find a single manufacturer that make a underbody armor kit for the 2.0 ! Please let me know if anyone finds one or has insider knowledge on upcoming products ?

Good news I have now seen the skid for the turbo from Artec. It should be on their website in a week. 1699.00 aluminum and confirmed it will be only 80 pounds and after removing the factory fuel tank skid and cross members gaining a inch of clearance.

I emailed Artec last week this is what they said.

We should have the testing of it completed next week after Easter Jeep Safari so release should be withing a couple weeks after we want to make sure the product is 100% up to par before releasing

Sincerely,
Artec Industries

I've seen the skid and it fits perfect

I wonder how this will affect engine cooling.

I have the full Metalcloak underbelly skids for my 2dr 2.0 turbo. They used my jeep for measuring and prototype. I have had them on for a couple weeks and they fit perfectly. They cover everything, including the battery and battery lines. No way any of that stuff could get hit. It is awesome. Look for them to be available very soon.
