Default Underbody Protection

I had a situation recently that made me appreciate how adding a bash plate for my automatic transmission might be a very good idea. Can anyone opine on whether also adding a separate bash plate for the transfer case is equally as important, or is that somewhat more optional? Seems to me the transfer case is slightly more off to the side and hence perhaps a bit less exposed.

Just trying to find the right balance of protection, weight and cost.

Incidentally, being UK based, I couldn't buy the Bush Skinz plates and instead bought an ASFIR plate for my intercooler/sump protection. It's very good - 6mm ballistic grade aluminium and was easy to fit.

Hi Kiwi1973,
I have the bushskinz intercooler, sump, trans and transfer case guards. I have crushed my intercooler when it only had the factory guard and my mate has ripped the wires off of the trans / transfer case on his NT. If you are going to do the trans may as well do the transfer case as well. The additional weight of the transfer case guard is minimal if you have done the rest. Just my thoughts.
