I have an extra stainless one that I would consider trading towards sw doors or some of the sw cage parts you removed

I will be in Mexico through nov 7th but I will be checking my email from time to time while I am there.

Aluminum Gas Tank Skid Plate?

I made mine.

Took measurements, went down had it bent up, minor finish work and installed it, easy really. If you guys are interested I'll give you a more detailed description of what I did and go and make some more. I forget the thickness I used, but it was a serious piece of plate. I play rough with the truck and haven't had any issues.

couple of things, guys/gals located in the rust belt you might as well forget about the 4 bolts on the rear cross member off, mine all snapped and left it at that.

Let me know, I'm thinking $250.00, who knows about prices of aluminum these days?

Steel with galvanizing could happen as well

The RN one is just a galvanized repro of the stock one, so it will be rust free, but its not what you want if protection is what you're after.

Guys,

I bought mine at Lucky8, the "Equipe" model and although it looks to fit, notice the picture does not have the rear step bumper installed and althought I removed mine to refinish it and install it back on I have not done so yet. Here is a picture of what it looks like installed.

sorry, I could not attached picture, size is too large.

Tom,

Couldn't tell from the post if you're happy with it or not... do you have a verdict? I'm also curious about the look as I couldn't tell from Lucky 8... If you get the chance, can you email a photo to dakonhunt@yahoo.com?

Thanks! Dakon

Here is a picture without the rear step, I have it bolted in a temp fasion so I can drive it and not have any problems. Its not without any modifications to bolt it on, I will have to cut-off the lip in order to attach the rear step, but can be done without major issues. Also the guard does not have any holes for the swaybar, not a big deal also, a drill can take care of this. The guard itself has two light cuts accross key sections to let you make a straight and clean cut to modify it in case you have to.... such as in my case.

The quality is very well, extreamly heavy duty gauge aluminum...this is a set it and forget it kind of deal.

Would I buy again? YES!!

I think if someone buys this with basic skills, they can make it work with minor modifications as I'm doing.

Replace or Cover?

Does anyone know if this Equipe skid plate replaces the stock plate or covers it? In Tom's pictures it looks like it replaces the OEM plate, but somebody at Lucky8 told me that it covers the OEM plate.

Last time I checked there is no someone at L8 other than Justin, he has been trying hard to teach Rover Dog to answer the phone, but he is quite stubburn with customers without Treats *LOL*


You have to remove the old cover and weld 2 tabs to the frame to bolt it on a NAS.

Mine is getting done next week with the new x-member.

I know this is an old thread but i just got an equipe tank skid and attempted to mount it today. Looks like ill need to cut the lip off in order to use my RN receiver hitch. How did you accomplish this? I dont have much in the way of tools here so just wondering if you had it done or did it yourself.

Reviving this old thread

What's the latest on the options for Aluminum Fuel Tank Skid plates? Who sells them these days? I'm interested in something that is thicker than the stock one. How thick is the one that ECR carries?
