so i am talking to a guy that has a gas tank skid available near me for 75. its used and has some signs of wear (couple small dents and has been painted)
question is: is it worth it for 75, who makes this skid, and do i really need a gas tank skid?
Well for the price it's better than what you have now. I run a Savvy myself but from stock to something it ain't bad for the price. Run it a while, save your beans then sell it to someone else for what you paid for it.

Make sure to read the fine print...its 1/8" steel and won't fit with a suspension lift and a D44 rear axle. Probably because the clearance between the gas tank and diff is already pretty tight.

Will not be fit with hitches that mount underneath rear frame crossmember.
Another thing to consider is clearance. With a BL, some skids can be tucked up higher. I've gained 1.75" clearance with the Savvy GTS and it's tough as nails.
Any 'overlay' skid will result in a slight loss of clearance.
