For the CJ or the TJ?

The CJ uses the skid plate to hold the tank up. It has one strap on it, for or five bolts in the rear and I believe 2 bolts up front. The skid plate is lined with rubber to reduce noise and friction.

I have no idea about the TJ

Sorry, yes it is for the CJ. I have seen a strap on both sides, I guess I figured there was two underneath the skid. So I could, pending the condition, reuse the one that is there right.
Thanks

You should be able to reuse the old strap and skid plate. The only reason I would think you couldn't is that it is damaged or rusted real bad.

I just got a new tank, skid plate and all three straps. The straps from quadratec aren't that expensive, so you might get new ones. I looked at my old ones and they were all beat up and unusable. You might luck out, but all in all it may be a better idea to go with new ones. The kit for a 76 CJ was like 49 bucks for all three straps. I also got the new sending unit as well. I went all new and together for the

tank
plate
sending unit
straps

was like $325 with the shipping. I don't know what your budget is, but I definitely agree with the motto of doing it once and doing it right. If it is in question, probably better to replace it.

I agree with the motto, but my budget doesn't at this point. I already have a new sender and am getting the tank. I will see what kind if condition they are in and take it from there. Thanks
