  • High-Strength

    Simplified Bushing System
    Our simplified bushing system provides protection from creaking, while simplifying the install process to help reduce installation mistakes by service departments.

    Compatible With Mopar Skid Plates
    Engineered to integrate perfectly with the Mopar Front Axle Skid Plate. Whether your WK2 came from Jeep with the Off-Road Adventure Pack II or you decided to add the Mopar skid plates afterward, our WK2 Sump Protection Plate is designed to integrate perfectly and provide a smooth undercarriage.

    Compatible With Our Entire Product Line
    Already own our WK2 Lower Front Guard, WK2 Recovery Hooks, WK2 Recovery Points, WK2 Nudge Bar, WK2 Transmission Protection Plate, WK2 Hidden Winch Mount or WK2 Off-Road Front Bumper? We’ve designed the WK2 Sump Protection Plate to integrate perfectly with all of our products.

    Ease Of Use
    Our Access Panel version makes it extremely easy to service your 5.7L V8 WK2.

    Easy To Install
    We provide easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions. If you're half-way decent with a wrench you can easily install this yourself.

    Industry Leading Corrosion Protection
    We utilise E-Coat (Electrophoretic Coating) to provide the very highest corrosion protection available for steel automotive parts. Deposited from a water-based solution using a high voltage DC charge, the process coats all wet surfaces with an extremely tough and highly corrosion resistant finish that is unlike any other process. On top of that industry-leading electrophoretic coating we apply 80µm of extremely durable powder coat (advanced polyester thermosetting powder). Finally, whenever possible we build our products with highly corrosion resistant materials and fasteners (stainless steel, aluminium alloys, etc.) to provide enduring protection against corrosion when a coating is scratched or damaged off-road.

    Bolt Head Protection
    Our Bolt Head Protectors are engineered to keep critical bolt heads protected from off-road obstacles. They feature a slotted design that keys directly into the product with no possibility of spinning or moving when hit off-road.

    Real World Testing
    There aren’t many off-road companies who own a WK2 as their daily driver, or regularly take it all over Australia in search of off-road adventures. In our opinion, that extra testing and passionate attention to performance leads to superior products.

    Top Quality Finishing Touches
    We include all the details that matter. High tensile zinc plated bolts for maximum strength and corrosion resistance. Wedge-Lock washers to create bolted joints that are extremely resistant to loosening. Anti-Seize for bolted joints that are resistant to seizing. A Chief Products Shop Rag for all the dirty jobs around the garage. All packaged with extreme care to arrive safely and looking great.
  • Bolts into existing mounting points in the frame, no drilling or cutting required. Replaces OEM/Mopar plastic 'Belly Pan, Front' (part# 68037063 - 68091772 - 55079191).

    The Only part not protected ... is the Sump!

    Needed nudge bar to mount spotties. Ended up going the whole hog and got Chief’s bar, sump protection plate and transmission plate. As with the others, packaging, engineering and mounting hardware is absolutely FIRST RATE. BUT ... the sump protection plate protects most stuff down there EXCEPT for the sump. It should more realistically be called a front axle protector, lower engine or radiator protector. But not a sump protector. So now I have a yawning square between It and the transmission protector with the completely exposed sump, leaving just two options - put the flimsy plastic original cover back on (meaning removing both protection plates again first -aaaaargh!) or leaving the sump completely vulnerable. Poor nomenclature Chief. How about releasing an actual sump protector to match the other fine products?

    Great Plate

    I received my sump plate and was immediately impressed with the fit and finish of the piece. I wound up purchasing the access panel version for my V8. Installation was straightforward and easy, however, I didn't realize that I would need to install nutserts in order to install to the recommended method. I installed the sump plate using the existing holes in the lower radiator support. I found that the four M6 bolts that secure the panel to the lower radiator support wound up bottoming out on the unthreaded shank of the bolt before tightening the panel. I had to run my bolts through a die in order to seat the panel correctly. This is a minor negative and not that big of a deal to me. I will be removing the panel in order to install the nutserts very soon. At that time, I will acquire some new high tensile bolts with the correct thread depth in order to finish the installation correctly. Like I said, this was a very minor negative and I am so far impressed and very pleased with this panel. I can't wait to see how it holds up to the trails this year.

    Serious Business

    THIS PLATE IS BEEEEFY!

    I installed this on my 2017 Trailhawk to replace the factory plastic belly. Fitment was spot on, absolutely zero fab or modification needed. Install was easy I was able to complete by myself in around 20 minutes using only hand tools. The biggest aspect I was impressed with was the size of the access hole, it seemed a little larger than the factory cutout.

    Overall really nice quality, I will continue to recommend these products!

    Fantastic product

    I needed to replace the plastic belly pan on my Trailhawk after cracking it in an overland trip. Came straight to chief. Product arrived packaged very well. Installed easily. Fits great and looks even better. No brainer.

    Necessary

    Trail rated WK2 came with a plastic "belly pan". WTF?! This plate is not only necessary, it looks great too! Quality workmanship, great fit and easy install! A must for WK2 owners. (If planning on installing lower front guard, order the bare bones sump plate. Save yourself $70 US cuz the bolt protectors come with the lower front guard).
