The ROKMEN gas tank skid plate protects your stock gas tank and gives you the piece of mind needed to attack the toughest of obstacles. At the same time it increases your ground clearance by 1 1/2" inches overall and 1" at the dimple over stock.

ROKMEN is the first to offer a formed dimple in the bottom of the skid to protect and maintain proper function of the factory pickup and sending unit; just like the stock skid plate was designed to do. It is the right way to protect your investment and keep you moving down the trail.

Constructed from high grade 3/16" steel that is Laser cut, CNC formed, and then fully TIG welded for the highest quality gas tank skid available.

Protects the stock gas tank on 97-06' TJ/LJ Jeeps®
3/4" of additional clearance behind the diff cover
Constructed of 3/16" steel for superior toughness
Available bare steel only
Full replacement skid, does NOT install over factory skid

Price: $250.00
Pros: Its Rokmen: Beefy, beautiful welds, affordable, and really tucks the tank up nicely.
Cons: Shipping - see last half of my review.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Being a Rokmen fan, I am always 100% happy with everything I have purchased from them. I chose their steel skid over other vendors for a few reasons; Price is affordable, constriction is awesome, thick steel that will offer me lots of protection. Dare I say this skid may actually be bullet proof . Makes the factory skid feel like a soda can. Really tucks the gas tank in nicely. Dave and Jeff did a great job of describing the construction and install in their youtube video - which helped me out a lot when I needed reference! Once Rokmen makes it in aluminum - I would buy it again in a heartbeat!

Only complaint I have is that Dave and Jeff dont box up their larger stuff, just slap a FedEx label and some wood to it. FedEx got to scrape it up more than I did. Nothing major or anything to worry about, I just like to be the one to beat things up. Shrink wrap!!!!

Pros: Well designed and quality product like all their stuff
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This skid is made very well and put my tank up out of the way plus the factory skid didn't fully cover the front left of the tank so now it's completely protected.
Makes it a lot easier to line up all the mounting points if you have someone to help.

Pros: Extreme duty.
Cons: HEAVY
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Another top notch product of Rokmen. I'd buy this again in a heartbeat if I didn't mind the weight of the steel. I used it as a jack point several times. Wacked it on ledges more than I can count. Lots of scratches but no dents.

Price: $210.00
Pros: HEAVY DUTY!, fits perfectly
Cons: HEAVY! difficult to get back in?
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Got this skid cause the LJ has more hangover in the rear than the normal TJ's My stock gas skid was getting to the point that I risked puncturing the tank. Skid fits perfectly to existing mounts and tank. And very heavy dute! I could take the rear wheels off and drag the a$$-end of my jeep across rocks and come out fine. With BL tucks tank very nicely for an added lift. Only downside is installation. I snapped the tube coming out of the fuel pump trying to remove the old tank and installing everything back up while raising the tank leaves VERY little room to reconnect the lines. A lot of "feel" for where the lines and mounts were was required. That being said would do this again in a heart beat. I now don't have to worry about anything while going over a big drop and a tank hit is inevitable.

Comments: ROKMEN is one of the best if not the best company i have ever come across! they are dedicated to building the best product all the time! i have not found a product that can compete yet! thier quality and customer service is the best! great skid! heavy duty! i would recommend the BL/MM before installing the skid. Great product, I will buy Rokmen time and time again! I would suggest getting it powder coated through Rokmen, great quality and good price as well.

Price: $219.99
Pros: Heavy Duty, amazing product.
Cons: None, I am sold on Rokmen products.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: After removing the stock skid, I couldn't belive how strong this skid is. I was able to do the install by myself in the driveway with just a floor jack. I havent had the chance to hit it on anything yet, but if I can dent this thing, it would have destroyed my old skid. I also like the extra clearance I got for my rear diff, which was the main reason for buying it in the 1st place.

Pros: very well built and designed
Cons: ?
Recommended? Yes

Comments: very well built and designed. higher ground clearance and extra protection is a good feeling. tank droped right in and all bolt holes lined up perfectly! It is a bit of work for the gain you get. I recomend doing this upgrade with at lift install. dame my install much easier when working on the rear.

Pros: super HD. added significant clearance.
Cons: weighs a lot. comes un-painted
Recommended? Yes

Comments: love it so far. got it as a gift. has the factory style "bump" on the bottom to further protect the fuel pump and screen. I am torn as to whither or not it being un finished was good or bad. some other products I have came powder coated and it hasn't held up. I hit this with por and its doing good so far.

Pros: Very heavy duty and a perfect fit. Install video.
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: My stock skid was taking some heavy abuse since I have an LJ, that extra 5" past the rear wheels causes me to drop the gas tank on more objects than a regular TJ. This new skid has taken a ton of abuse without issue.
