Gas Tank Plate

Finding a gas tank skidplate for a late-model XJ in the junkyard just wasn't happening. The factory skid isn't the best to begin with, but it sure isn't worth the $100 people were asking for it in used condition. We found that Gen-Right was making a 25-gallon replacement tank that came with a 3/16-inch skid. So not only did we ditch the melting-prone plastic tank, we gained almost 100 miles of cruising range thanks to the bigger tank.
