The JL version says it is for both auto/manual on the 3.6 version, so I'd suspect it would work. I'd bet they'll tell you pretty quickly.Congrats ! That looks perfect. I would like to buy that. I have the manual transmission. Do you know if it fits both the automatic and manual transmission ? Thanks.
Hit that rusty scratchy factory skid with Rustoleum Rust Reformer and it'll last a nice long time and won't look like crap. I've done that to the skids on my JK for 13 years and they look like new until you get inches away and see the scratches and gouges. Stuff works really well and stops the rust.Hell yeah I'm glad to see another person rock the skidplate from them,I've been running mines for about 6 months now,I wish I should've gotten the transfer case skid cause now the OEM skid is all scratched and rusty from all the rocks and dirt,but overall it's been pretty good,I've snapped 2 bolts though,im pretty sure it was from the impact of something,but I upgraded all the hardware to grade 8,so just Incase I hope it prevents those 4 little bolts from coming apart from were it mounts
The way I look at is, stuff that is likely to get hit ”a lot ” like, rockers, diffs, bumpers , steel is better. But in the case of an oil pan/ trans skid , I see as a little extra insurance. This thing is very stout, especially when all bolted up to the cross members, and the weight savings is huge. I also like it smooths out contact points, so less likely to hang-up.Question, does aluminum make more or less sense to use over steel when it come to skid and underbody protection?
Company offers a few JT products.
Super easy to install!I wonder why the Quadratrac parts are so much more expensive than the Asfir? Even with int'l shipping vs "free" shipping the Quadratrac combo engine/trans/skidplate is 50% more than the Asfir. Guess I'll find out today if the Asfir are a pain to install.
It really is easy to install,I'm a pretty big guy and my truck ain't lifted but as long you got a couple of wood blocks to sorta hold up the plate you should be fine,just make sure you truck is cold or otherwise "Colorful language" will be implemented when you get burnedSuper easy to install!
A lot of big name American manufacturers have had aluminum and steel options for a while, so there's nothing to worry about. Aluminum is softer, so in most cases it's 1/16" thicker than steel counterparts while still lighter.Question, does aluminum make more or less sense to use over steel when it come to skid and underbody protection?
The fuel tank skid plate is actually the same price (~$430 shipped at time of this post) from either company.I wonder why the Quadratrac parts are so much more expensive than the Asfir? Even with int'l shipping vs "free" shipping the Quadratrac combo engine/trans/skidplate is 50% more than the Asfir. Guess I'll find out today if the Asfir are a pain to install.
I will say that asfir customer service is great so far. They emailed today about my order since I put in that it’s for a manual gladiator and they checked to confirm that it was and asked if I was certain I wanted to still get them. I said yes and that I would update them if it fits and document the install. I’m pretty impressed so far.I’ll let you know. I just ordered one for my manual.
Hi there, adding on to the special forum discount -> we're launching a new website and we want to celebrate it with you!I just installed mine last night. It was here within a week of ordering, I couldn't believe it. Installation was straight forward, and hardware was complete (which is actually a big deal, I get so frustrated with companies when bolts are missing and I need to source them myself).
Also, I messaged them on FB and they gave a 5% forum member discount if anyone is interested going forward.
