Bump to this thread. WTB aftermarket fuel tank cradle (wish I was handy enough to make one!). What are my options and who do you like? Lucky8 and SafariHP don't show any cradles for 90s on their website. What am I missing?

I have a Southdown but I prefer stock galvanized if you are not using as a skid plate as I have seen the tanks wear with aftermarket plates not sure if that includes Southdown or not. ECR I believe had a note about the issue at one point.

Any theories as to why the tanks wear with non stock skid plates? I don't recall there being any type of isolation between the two when I swapped out to a SG skid plate. Do the after market plates allow movement of the tank?

Any plate does double duty as the cradle. Movement shouldn't be an issue.
