I was able to install my Warn gas tank skid on my 04 Rubi without dropping the tank. It was a pain since i was doing the install alone, but well worth it for the extra clearance, gave me about an inch over stock. I do run a JKS BL, and from what i understand Warn has re-designed their skid and does not offer any more clearance over stock....I'm not totally sure on that though. I have an older one i got prior to the recall/redesign.
I used ratchet straps around the seam of the tank to hold it up while i swapped the skids. I had the tank hella empty when i did this. Hope this helps.
