Fuel Tank

Okay I cut off the skid plate for my fuel tank or atleast thats what it looked like. 2 days ago my fuel tank fell out from under the ass end of it, I was wondering how many straps to hold it up and if the plate is supposed to be there to hold it there too?

^^^ he's got it.

The skid holds the tank up. The two straps just hold it to the skid.
