Icon3 skid plate made out of B2

I have 3 bronco II hanging out in the weed row. I was thinking about using the skidplate for the gas tank off the bronco and trimming it down for my ranger. What do you guys think?

that actually might work nicely. You would prolly have to cut it down a little bit. It has been a while since I saw a B2 gas tank skid but doesn't it have a bend in it already.

Go for it. Then let us all know how you did it.

Hes not talking about using the b2 tank skid as a tank skid on his truck. hes taking about cutting it down some to use as a Front skid plate,
