We “armored” our Jeep

UnderCloak System

Our 2008 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is our daily driver so we’ve been skittish to do much off roading. In fact after the Wisconsin Jeep Jamboree last July, we swore off off roading until we figured out how to protect our daily driver.

There’s basically two methods or a combination of the two: (1) “lift” the Jeep or (2) armor it. Lifting allows you to put on larger tires which raises the Jeep up. This allows you to miss objects in the road that you would normally hit if not lifted up. Armor is just protection, usually metal, that you can add to the front, back, sides, and underneath your Jeep.

Our first Jeep, a 1993 Jeep Wrangler, was lifted about 4 inches. It could travel over most trail obstacles, but the ride was awful. It really wasn’t a daily driver.

Since we were worried that “lifting” our 2008 Jeep might ruin its rather smooth ride, armor it was!

This Wednesday we had the UnderCloak Integrated Armor System installed. Our Jeep is now a couple hundred pounds heavier as the metal armor is 3/16-inch steel . . .

    Hey that’s a great idea. Be glad that you aren’t in Taxifornia aka California. Her in the are I live they are having a rash of people getting their Catalytic converters stollen off their vehicle. That setup looks great. Maybe I should put one on our Jeep Grand Cherokee. They are suggesting that people have their catalytic converters welded to the vehicles and engraving your Vin numbers or Drivers Lic # on them.
