Help....I need to replace the fuel tank skid plate (20 gal tank) on my 95. The OEM is completely rusted through. I began to unbolt the original and quickly realized that it was actually holding the plastic tank up. I bolted it back up, fearing the tank coming down. Any tricks or ideas on how to remove the old rusted one and install the new one w/out the tank coming down. I also ordered new straps in that the old ones looked pretty rough.
Must say, the warrior replacement skid plate wasn't cheap....$180 with shipping.
