If you want a factory gas skid, try contacting Ranger1, He flipped his truck a while back and was selling a bunch of parts off of it. I think he still has the factory gas skid.
https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...ad.php?t=32911

You'll be better off emailing him, he hasn't been on in about two months.

Thanks... Yeah up front i rub on every little bump in the road. I am looking at moving stuff on the fenderwells that way i can pull the wheels up into the engine bay more. but until money comes along I will have to deal...

Trigger, thanks for the info. I am going to see what i can do about the gas tank plate. I only rub when going on and off the lifts and driveways... but can't be too safe...

I'm running 235/55 17 and I only rub on big bumps, but I've been doing it so long that most of the plastic is gone now. I need to rearrange my engine compartment, 'cause I really wanna tuck tire. The truck looks great. In fact it's almost exactly what I wanted, but couldn't afford at the time.

That looks SWEET. I love those wheels and the stance is nice and aggressive, yet daily driver friendly.

Good job.

Nick, what size tires did you end up with? 245-40-18's on the front?
I'm buying a set of 18's for mine and adding same lowering kit.
You have mentioned rubbing in the front. Is this on the inside or outside of the inner fenderwell or both?

I am running a 245/45/18 i think. will check in the morning and post while at work... I am rubbing on the outside fender well but only when hitting a hard bump... since putting the sway bar back on not so much rubbing anymore... kinda nice... Wish you were closer to me and i would help ya on the drop... just make sure you have patience, beer, and someone to help ya and to keep ya company.
