I have one and love it. I didn't get the D-ring mounts. I have a d-ring receiver that I install when wheeling, and I know i would have been running into those tabs when loading stuff in and out of the Jeep. I figured I would save myself the cussing fits and just stick to the d-ring.
Tank Tucks are a popular thing on the WJ, but I like mine how it is. I was originally on board, and was planning on a tank tuck. However, the factory spare tire well is such a great location to store tools, my compressor, bottle jacks, a set of grease clothes, spare fluids, etc. The best part is that I just crisscross a tie down across the top of the cover between the tie down areas, and it keeps the lid tight and everything in place when wheeling.
That said, I wanted to paint my bumper to match but didn't want the skid to stand out. So I painted it with flat black to blend with my tank. I like how it turned out, and I like the tank skid. It took a full saturday for me to install it, mark it up, remove it and trim it. Then I had it painted and re-installed it.
Installed the bumper, marked it for trimming to match the line of my fender flares:
I tacked on two tabs per side to secure my mud flaps for street driving, and I have quick release pins holding them on:
Complete...skid is painted flat black and blends in with the gas tank and undercarriage. I also painted the exhaust tip and pipe black with high temp paint:
