From your post, I m not sure what rusted through (tank or skid), but if it was the tank, then I would suggest replacing it with a poly tank. By doing that you do not need the plastic liner.
When I replaced mine, I got it from MTS (they also supply them to Quadtrac, etc). They were very helpful and also told me that their tanks were an average of 1/4 in thick eliminating the need for the liner.
Plus poly does not rust inside or out. Poly is the best way to go if the tank is what you are needing to change.
Below is a photo I took when I changed my tank from a 20 gal, back to 15. The 20 gal is still in the OEM skid assembly held in by the strap. The strap changes with the size of the tank. Your lines have to be installed before you bolt the assembly back up. Be careful not to pinch or kink the lines when you reinstall.
