It’s no secret that Jeep vehicle owners are an interesting, adventure-seeking bunch. How else do you explain the off-roaders, the overlanders, and the general thrill-seekers who flock to the Jeep brand name? Jeep vehicles are incredible rugged, and one of the things that makes them so reliable and trustworthy is also one of the parts of your Jeep vehicle that’s relatively easy to forget about. So today, we’re saying thank you to skid plates, for being there to protect the bellies of the Jeep brand vehicles we love, so that they may live to ride another day, and another, and another. Check out this video below staring the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk and learn a little more about the importance of skid plates.

Just like an animal protects the soft parts of its belly, it’s important to protect the vulnerable components of your Jeep brand vehicle’s undercarriage. That’s why the Jeep brand equips all the members of the Jeep lineup with skid plates, and if you’re one of the proud owners of the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, you’ll also see rock rails in addition to your skid plates, which are already doing the tough job of fending off scrapes, rocks, boulders, and whatever else you can throw at them in order to protect things like your fuel tank, transfer case, or your oil pan.

If there’s a Jeep brand vehicle in your life with skid plates that you can thank, now is as good a time as any to say your thanks. If you’re still looking for the right vehicle, however, we’d like to invite you to join us at Lithia Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Grants Pass, located conveniently on 1421 NE 6th Street, Grants Pass, OR. Here you’ll find a fine selection of new and pre-owned Jeep brand models, so you can browse to your heart’s content, or at least until you come across that perfect adventure companion. Then it’s just a quick stop over in the finance department before there’s nothing standing between you, your new Jeep vehicle, and the open road.
