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 JeepsŪ
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

Comments: This skid is an awesome skid. So far, IMHO it is the best full replacement gas tank skid on the market. I just installed it and haven't gotten the chance to whack it on the rocks yet, but there is no doubt in my mind this skid will take whatever I throw at it. I will send an update when I do. Now I will say I did have to add 3/4" coil spacers to the rear of my Jeep due to the added weight along with my Hi-Lift and rear bumper setup, but not to worry the protection and peace of mind is definitely worth it. I also feel the Jeep handles much better on and off road with this skid installed.

Since I already had some rubbing issues with the stock setup, I thought I would run into clearance issues with the rear track bar, driver's side shock, or with my aftermarket exhaust piping. Well I was wrong! Turns out this skid fits perfectly and actually gave more clearance the whole way around. I was just flabbergasted. This skid is the epitome of gas tank skids.

As for the install, it was easy and straightforward. If you follow the tips and instructions off the Rokmen YouTube install, you should have no issues. To me the hardest part was just lifting the tank back up under the Jeep since I did do the install solo. It would definitely help to have someone else to help line up and balance the tank as you lift it back up.

Comments: Heavy!! Great quality and easy install. It took three people to lift the tank + skid + 10 litres of petrol to put it back up while the Jeep was on a hoist.

Excellent gain in clearance!
I wish it came powder coated, but it did not. Shipped bare metal, no box. Received in less than three days prior to ordering. Excellent product, will buy from again.

Comments: Awesome skid plate. I picked it up locally and they had one that was powdercoated, which saved me a lot of time. I'm glad to get rid of the flimsy, bent up stock gas tank skid plate.

Comments: The extra clearance is much appreciated. My stock skid was just crumbling from rust and this works great. No complaints at all on the install. I sprayed it with bedliner prior to install.
