Thanks fellas.

So here I lay under the 90 replacing the gas tank skid with Safari HP's skid. I was pleasantly surprised to see I have a plastic tank...I thought they were all metal.

Plastic or not, its a good idea to remove and clean periodically as there is enough crud and gravel accumulation to puncture the tank over time:

Pic above shows 550 cord on each side of the frame and under the tank to hold it up while I replaced the skid.

Every nas90 truck I have seen has the plastic tank, and yes, it's definitely a good idea to pull that down periodically or at least get in there and give it a good hosing out.. The build up of mud which then holds moisture rots out the cradle and the chassis.. And last I checked you can't buy the rear nas subframes anymore.. Lube the bolts with anti seize when reassembling and spray periodically with boeshield..

Good to know, thanks! My frame looks solid thankfully.

A shoutout to nathanwind, Jason Lav, for the solid wing top mounts. Finally screwed them on with stainless screws after a year or so in the garage; perfect fit and finish. Must have IMO.

Refinishing my rear end as well... Replacing all hardware to Grade 8 or higher in zinc/stainless, sanding, painting with Eastwood, installed Safari HPs aluminum skid, new fuel filler hose, tightening up the wiring to the Wipac LEDs, etc. Pictures and reviews to come.
