Hazards abound on the road and off. Bits of tire rubber, small stones and other debris can turn into shrapnel when traveling at high speeds. They ricochet and skid along the underbelly of your rig, scratching, denting and puncturing as they go. Scaling rocks, muscling through thick undergrowth and navigating extreme terrain in the backcountry can take a toll on your rig, especially the undercarriage. The Jeep gas tank and suspension system are ready for light off-roading straight from the factory, but if you’re ready for a weekend expedition of hardcore adventure and exploration, it’s time for skid plates and an auxiliary fuel system.
Skid plates are crucial if you’re planning to spend much time off-road. They are heavy-duty armor that bolts onto the vehicle to protect the underbelly components. If the stock gas tank is worn or damaged, upgrade to a Wrangler fuel tank replacement. It’s unfinished and available in steel and aluminum. The Jeep fuel tank skid plates
fit over the original or replacement gas tank. They have a black primer finish and can be painted to match the other undercarriage accessories.
Extra Fuel Storage
A wilderness weekend calls for more fuel. The more you use 4WD and low gearing, the faster the rig guzzles. Finding secure storage space can be difficult when all your other gear also needs to be stowed away. Tire auxiliary fuel systems have a 12-gallon capacity and fit most stock and aftermarket tire carriers. The tank is fully grounded and vented with protection against rollovers.
