Fuel tank skid ??

Sorry for the noob question, but before I go pull a skid at the pic-and-pull that I saw earlier, are they they same for the ZJ's? I have a 94, and the one that I spotted was from a 96. I know there are some changes, but was fairly positive that this would be the same, hopefully?!?!?

Thanks!
Robert

Only problem is you most likely won't have the nutserts on your frame rails and there will be nothing to bolt it to on your rig.

Check first and see if you have them installed or you will have to either buy them (~ $8.00 each from the dealer) or you will have to weld some nuts on to your existing rails to attach it.

There is thread floating around here somewhere on how to make your own installation tool for them too. They are a PITA to install correctly.

I found a supplier in Ca. that stocks them for about $2.50 each:



Also note that they have a tendency to spin while trying to get them out. I've had this happen to me several times in the junkyard trying to remove both transfer case and gas tank skids.

I do! I do! That's why I was pretty sure it would bolt right up, because they attach to the same bolts as the hitches. Thanks everyone, I'm gonna go snatch it up right now!

I got mine from a upullit place, and a couple mins of scrubbing and a bit of krylon, it looked brand new.
