    You don't unless you fab something. Honestly, I'm not certain the exhaust loop skid is necessary.

    Now that you have been using the skids for a while, any new thoughts? Rock catcher, exhaust loop skid needed, oil changing complications or any other concerns or dislikes?

    I try really hard NOT to put rocks and obstacles right down the middle of my Jeep so for the most part, I don't even feel the need for skids like this. My main concern has always been about the transmission cooler lines and for that, I'm glad to have this. So far, I haven't had any issues with it but most of that is because I don't make it a habit to hit it. I still think the exhaust loop is unnecessary and may eventually remove it IF it becomes an issue as others have reported. I installed a Fumoto valve soon after installing this skid and oil changes are a snap with it. I just hook up a hose to it and drain right into a jug. No mess or fuss what so ever.

    Fumoto valve

    Eddie,

    Which fumoto valve PN did u use for the JL? The website only goes to 2017 and I want to make sure I get the right threading. I have a 2019 JLU Rubicon.

    I have Fumoto valves on all my vehicles. The JL is the only one without a engine skid. Any suggestions on a engine skid for a 2.0T JL?

    With the exception of the exhaust loop, I would think that this engine skid should work for a 2.0T as well.
