    Looking under a number of KKs and KJs with the intent to buy, I saw almost no skid plates.

    Under mine I believe I saw none.

    I'm trying to find what I'm missing.

    From the adverts I see a front (plastic?) air dam or skid plate?, a transmission skid plate, material unknown, and a tank skid plate which appears to be a metal box.

    What was the original on the 2008 Liberty Limited?

    3? Or more? Which?

    This looks like a good time for the junk yard, but they are few and far between here in Utah, unlike when I was in Los Angeles and we had quite a few with a good supply of cars.

    Thanks

    I have the build sheet, which is available to anyone on the web, for my recently purchased 2008 Limited. It shows skid plates on the build sheet. I think they were an option.

    Thanks

    That's what I was starting to think. Factory or dealer options. Most of them didn't have it, as most of them never went off road.

    I'm only thinking of mild off road, to get my atv to some trails. So I probably don't need them at least initially.

    How did you get your build sheet? Just came with the purchase? Or is there a source?

    Just got all this online. Nothing came with my purchase of a 12 year old Liberty!
    I do feel lucky though that this Liberty was so well optioned.

    Also I got the original window sticker

    If I remember correctly it was called the skid plate group.
    Here are the OEM "KK" skid plates.
