TJe0454 got it. and added a personal touch.

Wesboy 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.

If your Jeep has a DANA 44 rear axle with a suspension lift with adjustable control arms and it is adjusted all the way to the rear, than this skid plate will not fit. Will not be fit with hitches that mount underneath rear frame crossmember.

Mikekaz1 Sorry to hijack. But I've herd alot about the improvements in the 03 and newer tj's factory ones. Can someone post a pic of them. I'd like to see the difference

Ibuildembig Id run it and wouldn't look back

DevilDogDoc 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.

IslandTJ LOL TJe0454 beat me to it.
06-23-2011 01:31 PM
IslandTJ Your existing 2001 skid really isn't much of a skid, compared to the 2003+ models. I needed a skid as I banged my tank often and even manged to put a dent in it.

I wonder if that skid is the Tomken skid that mounts over the OEM skid.

TJe0454 looks like a tomken

do you know what brand this is? and there's quite a bit of difference price-wise between a $75 skid and a $329+ship one.

99TJCrawler How thick is the skid? You want one that is at least 3/16" steel. If it is, that's a good deal. I would recommend getting one if your are doing any off road ventures.

gas tank skid

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?
