Why spend more on aftermarket, the OEM gas tank cover 82206122 is cheap, easy to install and does its job well.

Rear gas tank armor can't say enough good things about.. I spun and crashed rear first into solid rock and smashed the tow hitch into the gas tank. Bent the armor and I drove home...2 more weeks in fact till replacement ZJ was found. Tank never ruptured.

does what its supposed to do. and it keeps your gas tank from getting dented in when you could possibly bottom out

It goes the job done in protecting the gas tank. It could be a bit beefier, but what do you expect from jeep.

The stock Overland skids have held up well to the small amount of abuse they have received. I am pleased with them.

Purchased used on Ebay, but it was the factory gas tank skid. Glad I purchased and installed!

Better to have a skid then no skid! This thing will save your ***. Literally.

The Best $5 I have ever spent.
