Gas Tank Skid September 27, 2014
Reviewer: Ryan Taylor from Concord, CA United States  
Came with no directions.  I needed to empty the tank completely to get it to fit in the skid then it was about 3/4"-1" from being bolted all the way up once it hit the floor boards of the jeep.  I removed it and shaved 1/2" off the plastic straps on the top of the tank for more clearance.  Once I did this I could get it close enough to start the bolts.  I loosened the body mounts to give me more room as well.  Then retorqued them once the tank was tight.  I think I am going to go back at put a 1/8" 3/16" body lift for a little more room since the tank is being compressed.    Other then that, I like the look and design.

TJ Gas Tank Skid July 31, 2014
Reviewer: Allen Carr from Saxonburg, PA United States  
The skid is very well made and no doubt will protect the tank. The steel component was nicely powder coated and presented well. The aluminum parts were a disappointment, they came straight from the laser cutter to the press brake and into the box. They showed up with the laser cut edges being completely sharp with no attempt to remove or soften any of the laser cut edges. Fortunately they are light weight and easy to handle so I didn't get cut, but for the price a little bit of deburring would go a long way. They also claim to use stainless hardware in many applications, but I guess this is not one of them because zinc plated steel is what came with this. A trip to the store for SS bolts is now in my future before installation. I do think this is a well built component and will perform great on the trail. With as much hype this company gets for building high end products I guess I set my bar a little too high.
