Rear Fuel Tank mounting

I was fitting the rear tank on to my shiney new galv. chassis yesterday when I got to wondering whether the tank mounts should be sandwitched between rubber doughnuts above and below with the mounting bolts going through to the chassis. rubber just below or should the mounts be solid - no rubber involved at all?

Also factory skid plates a good or bad thing? How much load do they take off of the tank mounts?
The truck will I hope be making return trip(s) to Morocco and the tracks & pistes are pretty rough.

Diesels.....great when they're going and so easy to work on.

THe NAS Defender 90 tank guard/tank cradle mounts solid to the frame with no rubber washers between the frame and guard.
