    Does anyone use a skid plate for the gas tank? If so, where's a good place to get one?

    Thanks

    Factory skid plate? Don't know if they have Pic&Pulls in MA or not but I have seen them there.

    Thats whats on mine & it works well. I'm sure you can still smash it if you try hard enough, but I have had pretty good luck with it.:thumb:

    If you'd've (sp,grammar?)caught me last week I'd've given you two of them, I cut them up to make use of the "metal" (read, weld filler)
