Nth Degree Mobility Tummy Tucker Skid Plate - Reviews

Customer Rating Fantastic part... if you do the preparation

I have a 97 TJ with Automatic Transmission. I wanted more clearance, but didn't want to run more lift. After much review, and much reservation about the high cost of the Tummy Tucker, I bought one. Having done my homework, prior to installing the Tummy Tucker, I installed a 1" Body Lift. I also installed a 1" Motor Mount lift. With the Body and Engine lifts already completed, the Tummy Tucker installation was extremely easy. The increase in clearance is fantastic. This is a very well engineered and produced product. After the installation, I ended up putting a Currie Transfer Case Linkage adapater on in hopes of improving the shifting into 4WD.

Customer Rating Amazing product

This has got to be hands down the sturdiest high clearance skid out there.

Installation is a little involved, not as straightforward as it could be. While the installation instructions are good, it would have been way easier to install the product if more images / pictures were used. You have to try a bunch of things and kind of figure it out based on Nth Degree's verbal hints.

Among other things, you have to relocate your transfer case shift linkage- and one cool thing is that my TC shifter used to bind when stock, but now with the relocation it works better than new.

But it all came together and it's very sturdy. Not much of a vibration change, can feel it a little at idle but nothing else.

I did mine myself in about 5-6 hours with a couple breaks. A 4x shop nearby puts these in for $125. Looking back that would have been money well spent, but at least now I know what to do when stuff breaks.

Also, this was for my 2003 Rubicon. I had a CV shaft and installed it while I was under there. At the time my rig wasn't lifted, and the CV shaft was too long. Took it out and put the stocker back in place with zero vibes.

Customer Rating Fantastic clearance gains!

I'm running an 05 LJ, this meant the transfer case skid hung lower then most, and also that becoming high centered was a concern of mine as my wheel base was longer. I opted to go with a Nth TT. The quality of this product is fantastic. The fit and finish are great as were the in depth directions. Nth Degree's customer service is fantastic. The TT provides about 2-3" of additional clearence without going with a lift. I just measured the clearence between the ground and the TT today and it measured in at just over 15"! That is with an OME 2.5" lift, BFG AT 32's and 3/4" spacers all around. If you go with the Nth Degree you won't be disappointed. Like the first poster the quality and innovation of their TT caused me to order their: slider, oil pan skid, tranny skid and rear upper adj control arms.

Customer Rating Best upgrade ever installed
Date: Apr 25, 2005
Reviewer: A JeepReviews.com User from (Tacoma, WA)
This skidplate is by far the best thing that ever happened to my Jeep Rubicon. With this skid and a 2" budget boost I was easily able to do the Rubicon Trail and Fordyce Trail in CA without any clearance issues. These are both class 10 trails that require lifted vehicles. The quality of this skidplate is outstanding. You will not be dissapointed. As a matter of fact I've been so impressed with Nth degree's products that I have ordered most everything they sell for a TJ. Check out their new LA lift! It is sure to be the best lift on the market to date. No I am not affiliated with Nth degree.
