NAS D90 Alloy Tank Guard Source

Anyone have a source for an aluminum tank skid plate that will fit a NAS D90.
SafariHP is where I got my last one but they are out.
Thanks in advance.

The best ones ever were Slickrock Fabrication's. Dave Lucas has closed that down many years ago. Perhaps Jason/Natahnwind could pick up the torch and run with it again ?

I had one made years ago for my 90 as well as just recently for my 110. They are pretty simple to fab up. I can't recall if on my 90 I removed the stock cradle and just used the bar that was there to hold the tank in or if I just had an aluminum one made that went over the top of the stock cradle as a skid plate. But regardless I am sure you could remove your stock on and take it to a metal fab place like I did and have them bend you one up real easy. As a thought.

I think I still have the cad files or at least a drawing might be willing to pass it along to the right person.

There was a wanted thread going a couple or so weeks ago about some being made up in stainless. I know I'm going to grab one. Not sure where they sit currently.

Depending on what alloy it was I doubt I'd want a stainless one. 8 or 10mm alum on the other hand.

I had an aluminum Safari HP skid on my old D90. It was awesome. I powdercoated it black:

That was a good looking truck. Even with its carpet.

Odd question Chris, did you get those Km1s siped or did the center treads just do that on a trail?

That's definitely a sipe job. Looks just like mine.

Tank guard looks really nice blacked out.

One of my Km2s looks exactly like that and I never had it siped, honestly I think I spun on a rock and it happened.
