cj5 tank skid

Anyone have any experience with aftermarket skid plates for a CJ? I see plenty of them for the newr yuppie jeeps, but what about the old stuff, seems like I don't have as many options. Kilby's is for 20 gallon tanks and of course I have a plastic 15gal, so that wont work. Tomken has one but its mounting doesn't seem that beefy [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wall.gif[/img]

Re: cj5 tank skid

Uh.... 15 gal plastic tank? 15 gal should be a steel tank..... plastic tank is 20 gal.....

Why are you looking for an aftermarket skid? Just curious..... I would think that you'd have the stock 15 gal steel tank... should be pretty easy to find the skid for that. It's the same tank in the CJ5, or CJ7.

Re: cj5 tank skid

My tank is an aftermarket replacement 'cause the original was rusted out. I have the factory flimsy skid, but want something beefier that will take some abuse.

Re: cj5 tank skid

My old CJ-7 had a plastic 15 gal. aftermarket tank that I put on. The steel tank developed several leaks.

Re: cj5 tank skid

I am also interested in the answer to this. I also have a 15 gallon tank in my '77. I have looked and looked for a heavy skid for it have not found anything. There are several nice skids for the 20 gallon, but none that I can find for the 15. Where is the Tomken skid you mentioned in your first post? If anyone knows of anything I would love to hear about it.
