Rock Hard 4x4 Parts Gas Tank Skid

Rock Hard 4x4 Parts JK gas tank skid is made from 3/16" steel plate laser cut and CNC bent for a perfect fit. Removal of the factory skid is not necessary as the Rock Hard skid bolts right over it using factory bolts and one additional one on 2-door models and three additional bolts on 4-door Unlimiteds. Drilling is required for these 3/8" bolts. The two front factory bolts are replaced with tapered bolt head protectors to allow rocks to slide across them with ease and still allow you to get a socket on the bolt heads for removal. Sides are tapered along the full lenght of the JK for better clearance. Comes powder coated black with a slight texture.

These skid plates give me the piece of mind I need when rock crawling. This was money well spent.

I ordered the skid plate from Northridge4x4 for $350. Price included shipping. Skid plate packaging was great, no scratches or dings upon arrival. Very heavy duty, fits perfectly right over the factory skid plate using same mounting points. You are required to drill 2 small holes in your factory skid at the rear ends for 2 additional bolts. Installation was very easy, instructions are included. I had already put some significant dents in the factory skid which I hammered out prior to installing the new skid over it. I am totally confident that this will provide all the protection I need for my gas tank.
