    I am looking to purchase a factory gas tank skidplate for my 31 gallon tank and was wondering if there are any ways to measure skidplates I find in the junk yard to see of they will fit a 31 gallon tank.

    Thanks

    I'm pretty sure that they only made the skid plate in one size. The smaller tank just has a larger gap between the tank and the skid plate. /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    TRUE.....there was only one size skid plate foe the K/5's.It can be found under 26g and/or 31g tanks.

    might be a stupid question but....if I could geta cheap sidplate that was off of a 1990 blazer would it fit my 81'?

    The crossmembers should be the same but my only concerns are how the straps would differ.
