He said underbody protection in the section before the underbody shot.

There were a few plates there, but also some reinforced bars (much of which had scratches). Some protection is built into the part as well like the reinforced pans, etc.
Does the Rubicon come with every skid plate in the Mopar catalog, or are there extra plates to get there that don't come stock?

I don’t know anymore. But I think Mopar has more (like the swaybar plate), or at least other 3rd party aftermarket options.

I know that in 2012 that was the last year before they added some to all, with an added single plate for the Rubi (oil sump IIRC), yet you could still add more, especially 3rd party that was stronger and broader.

That plastic oil pan for the ZF8 looks pretty exposed in that video. (At least that's what I think it is.)

Yeah, not sure if it's plastic or reinforced painted steel.

There's a crossmember underneath there that looks like it will catch on a lot of things and get damaged.

Seemed like a couple of cross members that were ripe to catch on stuff. Didn’t look like a good off-road setup. Not sure why there would be those running across the vehicle without having good ramps/lead-ins on the front edges.

Very disappointed to see the diesel is only available on the 4 door.

Do we know any more details on this new manual transmission (D478)? Are there any current real world uses yet? (other than the JL of course) The only bit I was able to find out is that it is still an Aisin made transmission but even they do not have any information on their website.
