    EVO MFG JL Protek Rear Shock Skids

    The lower rear shock and control arm mount on the JL is the lowest and most vulnerable component for impact and damage while on the trail. The EVO MFG JL ProTek Rear Shock Skids give the strength and protection needed to help protect your expensive and important suspension components. Fully bolt on with no required cutting, drilling or welding, these skids box in the rear control arm and shock mount with 3/16Ē steel and offer a ramping flat face to help you sliding up and off obstacles. They comes with both driver and passenger sides skids, powder coated black for corrosion protection and ready for easy installation with standard tools.

    Nice, I may have these ordered up and ready to install when my JL arrives.

    These are a great investment. But put them on before you bend the shit out of the control arm mounts. Install would be easier then, I put mine on after and it was a good amount of work.

    Not to mention the shock mount is huge rock target.

    The front relocation brackets move the shock mount out farther on the axle. They are used so you can fit a larger diameter shock (like a coilover ). Without relocation a coilover would contact the frame rail at full droop.
