Rear plate protecting the gas tank is rotted

What would this cost to replace with a galvanized replacement, and where can this be purchased? does this have to be welded in or are there bolts?

Thank you.

Ronnie it would help if you tell us what type of truck you have. They are not all the same, especially now with people importing trucks from overseas.

Many posts on the subject.
The plate is bolted on.
RN=gavly plate
SafariHP=alloy plate
Use lots of PB blaster...those bolts tend to break due to rust...
And do this with a nearly empty tank...

Happy wrenching...

Cheers...

Can you forward the exact link where you purchased the plate? Is it easy to install and does it come with the bolts? Thank you.

I think a lot of folks get it from Stephen, looks like they may be out of them at the moment:

SafariHP plate and get it powder coated satin black.

When you reassemble, I recommend some nice stainless bolts from McMaster Carr, coating them in anti-seize before you install them. With that combo, the bolts will come off easily if you ever need to access the tank or fuel pump.

Start with the Liquid Wrench penetrating oil or the PB Blaster well before you pull the old plate. I would hose those bolts down several times a day for at least a week. Tap them lightly with a hammer to help the oil penetrate.

You really don't want to shear the head off of one of those bolts, as it a major pain in the ass if you do.

To answer your question directly, about $200 for the part and about 2-3 hours labor to replace if you are paying a shop. Since you are in NY, I would call Mike at Manhattan Europarts and see what he can do for you.

Mike has been gone for 3.5 months now, but the business is still there - swung by last week.
