        does this come with the tank straps?

        • This does not, this will just be the skid.

        Will this add ground clearance to the gast tank I was wondering if since this skid plate is thinner if it gives more clearance to the gas tank?

        • No. This skid plate covers the gas tank to protect it. In doing so it will minimally decrease clearance by its thickness. If you are looking for added ground clearance you will need to lift your Jeep.

            Rugged Ridge gas tank skid plate for tj

            Very well built, fit and finish was spot on. I recommend this product. This skid plate provides very good off road protection for the fuel cell.

            Rugged Ridge Gas Tank Skid Plate TJ Wrangler

            For my 2001 Wrangler w/TeraFlex 4" Short Arm Lift w/No body lift. This Was shipped quick and easy. Nice quality and very heavy duty. Direct bolt on. Does not require a body lift to fit. I would recommend if you are replacing a rusted skid plate or upgrading. Looks great. Seems expensive but the quality is there. Had a shop install it and it took them less then an hours. Shop rate was 2.5 Hours.
