    Hello. New member with my first Jeep. I picked up a 02 3.7L Liberty Sport with 100,009 miles. Love it!
    I am in Michigan so am very happy to say that it has very little rust on the body. With all that being said, I would like to add some upgrades. I think first I would like some under body protection. I do have front skid protection but that's it. Any leads on the rest of the set would be great. Doesn't need to be new but should be in good shape and have all hardware as needed.

    Welcome to the forum.
    The Oem Transmission skid is Mopar 82210003, can still be found complete with new hardware @ a reasonable price. The Skid row plates are way higher quality though.
    The OEM gas tank skid, that would be fun to remove at a yard!;)

    I was thinking the same about the removal at the yard. We do have a couple pull your own part yards around here. I really don't think I will be doing any hard core four wheeling so the OEM parts should work just fine for now. But that being said, it really comes down to cost and the best value for the money spent.

    We also have a marketplace section, for sale & wanted section, feel free to browse or post.
    I wonder if Tom may have an extra OEM trans or tank skid?
