What kind of shape are you looking for? Trail beater? I'll have a take off soon as I have a fuel pump to replace and I might as well do the new cradle. It's rusty, but hasn't been landed on. It's on the truck in Portland waiting for the work to be done, otherwise I'd snap a pic. So if you're not in a hurry, or looking for fancy, let me know and I'll bring it up to you.

I'm not looking for an original type replacement as mine is in good condition. I'm looking for a HD replacement for better trail armour.

Hey speaking of rear skid plates. I'm looking to change out that questionable stock unit for either an aluminum one of the 8-10mm variety or 3/16 stainless type to fit a '95 NAS D90. I don't need sway bar holes. If unavailable I'll make up some and offer balance on the board. Thanks in advance.

Ha I suppose your right. I have about 19 irons in the fire. What's one more? I'm trying to get ready for a 3 week trip around Utah. I'll work on it and go from their. What is the preferred material and thickness?

Stainless is probably preferable (314 ) but as for thickness.... Thick enough not to push into the tank if you come down on it...

You probably know better than I do...

304 or 314 not enough difference. 304 more common. I've felt that 3/16" was sufficient for most hard drops. I'm leaning more towards stainless over 5052 aluminum today and for awhile. I would probable add a number of lightening holes in the angled portion for ventilation and maybe take a little weight out too.

This thought pattern I'm having on bottom of skid plate I would like some input. With the thicker (8-10mm) aluminum...counter sunk screws could be used. Preference Y or N? I've only scratched bolts over the years but never just wasted them so I couldn't get them removed/replaced. I guess I'm just looking for some input

What about using something like a carriage bolt... To rx head or something that will slide... Never been a big fan of aluminum for armour... To brittle... Rather have something that will dent than snap and be the thing that punctures the tank.

Good point. 6065 is much more brittle than 5052. I'll have to dome scratch a bit on all that. Lots to think of here. Any stainless bolt is not really high shear. Titanium maybe but stupid expensive. It will be fine with stainless I think. I'll just work on being a better driver

Do you need to go with ss hardware... Galvanized steel would be stronger... Not as pretty though lol... Galvanic Btwn ss and galvanized isn't bad

This isn't an argument. It would be just as strong, less money by pennies but the smallest scratch leads to rust. Just another thought is that I can shine up the tank side good prior to install for reflective reasons to keep my gas cool as possible out on those desert trips that I frequent. That cool fuel is horsepower in these things. I'm just thinking way too much I'm sure. I should just fold some up and I'm sure it will be just fine. I think we have some good ideas here. How soon are you looking to have this?

Ok great Mark! This started as your inquire but has evolved into more. I'll pursue on my end more in hopes it will morf into something. Keep in touch with some thoughts. I'll do some more research on my end. I'm up their in BC @ Pacific Central station every other Sunday. Maybe we can touch bases on this. This tank guard thing does need more attention.

Sweet! The light skid guard on the 90s always made me nervous.

I notice you guys discussing counter sunk bolts and thought I'd just send a pic of this front skid I installed this past weekend with the same feature. I bought this used so don't know who made it. We'll see this weekend if it can't handle the job.
