Great product. I wouldn't use Kilbys instructions. I would get them from http://www.4x4xplor.com/kilby.html

Dragged this thing through some grueling trails - no problems at all.

I have beat my kilby tank skid to death and it hasn't deformed from it original shape one bit. The powder coating is a little scratched on the bottom, but i have no complaints there, it did its job! Highly recommended, any monkey with a floor jack and a ratchet can do the install!

Great product for us guys without huge lifts. Works real nice when your draggin' your hinney off rock ledges, ect. Take smartshot's advice on the instructions at http://www.4x4xplor.com/kilby.html they are alot better than Kilby's. This is one that's definetly worth the money!

I feel a lot better knowing my fuel pump is no longer vulnerable. Have not been able to beat on it yet, but it's only been in for 10 minutes. I have no worries. Thanks Kilby!

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.

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.

Excellent!!! I've taken some severe hits with it and it's only got scratches on it! The kind hits that make your teeth chatter when you land.

Easy to install with 2 people but I don't recommend doing it by yourself without a trans or atv jack to hold the skid and tank in place.

Easy install, tucks up the tank, and looks great! I've used this thing on countless occasions now and haven't regretted a day since I bought it.

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.

A lot beefier than stock and 1" higher for better ground clearance. Pretty easy to install.
