This plate is simple in construction, seems fairly well made, but it lacks what to me is a critical element. There is NO side protection at all, unlike the 20 gal. one I replaced it with. The stock 20 gal. plate pretty much fully encases the tank, this one protects simply the botttom. I am going to make some side protection that comes up at least a few inches, it seems to me this skid plate leaves the tank very vulnerable to side punctures. Not acceptable IMO for hardcore wheeling as it sits from the factory, only really acceptable for a mall crawler.
will fit a 1992 jeep yj 2.5 4x4 5 speed

Hi Mike! As long as you have a 15 gallon fuel tank, then this skid plate will fit your YJ Wrangler. I'm not sure what the 2.5 cylinder YJ's had as far as size of fuel tanks, but I think they were the same as the 6 cylinder. In either case, just make sure you have the 15 gallon tank and you'll be fine.
