If you don't get any takers would you be willing to ship it?

I looked into shipping before, and it's about 60-75 bucks. It's probably easier to buy new after you factor in shipping. If I get no takers I can look into though if you want.

It would depend on your engine size. 2.5's have a smaller tank then the 4.0's.....

I held it up to the 04 yesterday, all the holes are still on the frame, see no reason why it would not bolt up. The 04s bolt to the straps that hold the tank on, so they did redesign it at one time. I like the simplicity of the new design, but it seems the older ones were a little more stoudt as they did not rely on the tank for support, but had their own support arms that go to the frame.

So you are saying the tank skid plate will repace my gas tank straps?

I actually changed plans to come back to PA next week. I'll be hitting the Rausch Creek comp on Sat.

As for the tank, it will bolt up. The 04s boilt to the straps, but the holes are still there for the old mounting style. I actually think the old style is stronger, but less convenient to access.
