    As Justin says the stock skid plates look to be made from used world war 2 era tin cans Land Rover found laying around the countryside. Don't trust that to protect your low hanging vulnerable gas tank. The Proud Rhino gas tank skid plate is made from 3/8 Aluminum to help keep the already heavy trucks weight down. They easily bolt in using existing hardware and no modifications are needed to install. Hit the trails with confidence knowing your gas tank will be there when you are done. $508 plus shipping.

    I took my petrol tank skid plate off to fix the gasket leak on top of the tank. It seemed anything but a tin can, especially when it was laying on my chest! The ridges and shape make the plate pretty tough, plus it goes up the side of the tank a bit, giving it some extra protection.

    I like it! Any chance there is a gear skid that will accompany this?

    My OEM was dented badly causing me to lose upto 3 gallon of fuel capacity. Bang the OEM back in shape, put on the LK8 plate... Problem solved :)
