Price: $280.00
Pros: Solid proven design
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Good design that works for many manufactures. I installed my skid in the fall of 2003 and it has impacted rocks more than any other skid under my rig and has held up without any damage.

Pros: Love that it totally replaced the stock skid and takes a lot of bumps and thunks.
Cons: none known yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Had my Kilby skid plate installed on my '01 Wrangler Sport shortly after I bought it in 2001. I think it was a pretty new product then b/c everyone in Mid-Atlantic Jeepers club was excited about installing it for me.

Price: $300.00
Pros: Sturdy, fits alright
Cons: Paint comes off very easily; rust follows very quickly.
Recommended? No

Comments: After the install of the Kilby Gas Tank Skid Plate for my TJ I was pretty satisfied. It looked nice, and was very strong. However, not long after I noticed some rust bubbles at the welds. That eventually lead to paint peeling off, and much more rust all over. I first noticed rust forming at about 7 to 8 months after I got it. Still in OK shape, but I will have to re-paint to prevent further corrosion. VERY DISAPPOINTING...

Price: $285.00
Pros: increase ground clearance and built tough
Cons: the powder coating is pealing off.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I put a foam in the bottom to make up for the lack of tank slump. I am disappointed in the powder coating. those let downs are replaced by the strong design and the increase ground clearance.

Comments: Awesome! Takes hit after hit. Just don't tighten the straps too much, it'll pull on the tank and force the fuel pump out, making a leak, which sucks

Price: $150.00
Recommended? Yes

Comments: AWESOME product that not only is a great skid plate but also RAISES the gas tank clearance over the wimpy stock Rubicon skid plate if installed with a 1" body lift and the EVAP system is slightly modified.

Price: $275.00
Pros: Quality, fitment, toughness, in a word . . . everything
Cons: N/A
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I'm running the CJ version, but I don't see why I can't post my review here (and I'm too lazy to start a new review). This skid went on in about two hours and is everything a guy running very little lift could ask for. I have beat the crap out of this thing on multiple occasions and the only damage has been to the powder coat, which touches up nice with a rattle can.

I purchased it from Jason over at Jeepin.com . . . free shipping and even saved 5% with the Jeepforum discount.

Price: $245.00
Pros: Tough, 1" more clearance, easy install
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Did the install by myself. It took an extra few minutes routing the filler tube but wasn't difficult. The fit was perfect on my '00 TJ right out of the box. Spend the extra money and buy the best the first time around, it'll save you heartburn in the long run.
