Poison Spyder Gas Tank Skid

Does anyone have any experience or know anyone that has the Poison Spyder gas tank skid. It looks pretty badass and the price isnt to bad either. Any feedback would be appreciated.

thanks

The only feedback I have is, I'd like to get one as well. Something I noticed about it differing from others is; My RE track bar hit's the factory gas tank skid, near the very top. The PSC skid eliminates the skid in this particular area, giving the track bar room to not rub. Am I making sense? I know what I mean, but it's hard to describe without pics.

You make complete sense

That is the nice thing about the PSC Skid and why I am planning to put one on as well. They put alot of thought in their designs and I am happy with everything I have ever got from them.

I looked at that one, but I chose the Warn skid. It raises the tank about 1" and totally removes the factory skid.

If I look at the PSC pics correct, then the factory skid stays on, and that implies lost ground clearance, to some degree. I am sure it is tough, however.

The Warn skid was $180 in the 4wd Hardware holiday catalog. I picked it up fast. Q-tec was like $240, if I remember right.

psc

Did you install the rock knockers and tube fenders yourself? Was it easy? I'm thinking about adding them to my rig soon. What about the SYE and CV Driveshaft. Was it easy to install?

The knockers were easy just a pain to prop the Jeep up and grind the spacers down...the tube fenders were another easy bolt on with the hardest part being cutting out the old fender or fabbing up some new supports. About a full day of work between the two projects with jsut some hand tools and a jack

The SYE was also fairley easy just a little messy playing in the TC and the DS dropped right in pretty much.

I suggest you getting a Kilby Skid over the PS skid. If you aren't very mechanically inclined then the PS skid is the way to go because it goes directly over the top of your stock skid, BUT it also hangs a little lower than the stock skid. With the Kilby, it raises you tank 1" and totally eliminates the factory skid. You can tell a big difference in clearance betweeen my buddies PS skid and my kilby...

At your earliest convience, could you post a picture of the inner side of the Kilby skid, adjacent to the track bar? Much appreciated.

I just got the Metalcloak 4 piece aluminum/steel skid and I absolutely love it! Its a high clearance skid plate and it weighs a bit less than the steel alternatives but you still get the steel where it counts. You cant go wrong with it.

The skid Poison Spyder uses on Daddy Long Legs is the Savvy Aluminum gas tank skid.

Go here for all pix of the skid:
