Gas Tank Skid Plate

Hey guys. I just purchased a 03 Liberty a week ago and was thinking about purchasing some skid plates starting with the gas tank.

Can you guys tell me if there is a difference (besides the price!) between these two?

Mopar OEM
http://www.autotrucktoys.com/liberty...-PRD19463.aspx

Skid Row
http://www.skidplates.com/GasTank_02_KJ.asp

I dont want to spend the extra $200 bucks unless its worth it.

Any help would be appreciated. This is my first Jeep!

Thanks,
Aaron

Mopar is thin metal, works but not very heavy duty
Skidrow is heavy duty, think way thicker metal
Its much like the Kilby I have , heck you can jack up the whole rear end of the Jeep by the gas tank skid
couple of other places have them as well , let me check if they are offering them or not right now
Kilbys are only 285 according to their website

autotrucktoys is expensive
oh and there is one for sale over on LOST right now, stock Mopar
