I’ve seen maybe one user post that they had this skid. Has anyone installed it on a non lifted Jeep?

The lift shouldn’t matter at all. This will just offer full protection underneath. It certainly doesn’t cause a loss of any ground clearance.

The lift part is important. My driveshaft is coming in contact with the driver side mount under compression and I wanted to know if anyone else installed this one yet.

Can you please take a picture of where it is making contact. I’m confident we can get this resolved.

With that said, usually aftermarket drive shafts are significantly thinner which is what I am running. None the less pic please.

I removed the front skid, but it was this mount

No modifications, just slightly heavier AT tires in 265/70/17 on the factory steel Sport wheels

This may be a waste of time but is your front axle centered? If it was even a sliver off I could see how this might happen. The other thing you could do is bend the bracket just a smidge in a vice and just mount it slightly off centered to correct this. The critical components would be protected. The other option would be to obtain an aftermarket drive shaft from a company like Adams. This will for sure 100% correct your issue.
