Gas Tank Straps

There was a webpage on the Homestead site that had a how-to on hanging the gas tank with straps instead of the skidplate, but when I went back to check it out again it says the page is disabled. Was this someone on the list? Or does anyone have a copy or direct me to some info on it?
I'm in the middle of replacing the tank on my 88' XLT and the skidplate is toast due to rust. I want to hang the tank by straps then build a new skidplate to cover, similar to the ones in recent skidplate discussions.

Thanks,
Greg

Re: Gas Tank Straps

You could steal some straps out of a s-10 and weld them up to work. Purely a suggestion though.

Re: Gas Tank Straps

Search for Hide away hitches, those fit up flush with the frame rails.
For the tank, id just do something similar to The Juice, make a new skid plate and strap, but design it so the tank will sit higher. Then get rid of the old plate, or cut and bend it so it will make the tank sit higher

Re: Gas Tank Straps

Your local Napa should have a strap kit. It's just large plumber's tape. Once you buy the kit, it should be painfully clear how it works.
