Rock Hard 4x4 Parts JK gas tank skid is made from 3/16" steel plate laser cut and CNC bent for a perfect fit. Removal of the factory skid is not necessary as the Rock Hard skid bolts right over it using factory bolts and one additional one on 2-door models and three additional bolts on 4-door Unlimited. Drilling is required for these 3/8" bolts. The two front factory bolts are replaced with tapered bolt head protectors to allow rocks to slide across them with ease and still allow you to get a socket on the bolt heads for removal. Sides are tapered along the full length of the JK for better clearance. Comes powder coated black with a slight texture. Fits 2007-2017.

Proven by the most hardcore Jeep JK drivers on trails like the Rubicon, Moab, Rausch Creek and more, our skid plate system's design is the key to it's popularity.
With creature comforts like our RH4x4 exclusive "rock dome" bolt head protectors for the supplied mounting hardware and total Gas / Fuel Tank coverage - our skid system is undoubtedly the industry's premium package.
Our system is cut and formed from a single sheet making it smooth and seamless. This gives you a true skid plate without rock catching and high centering flaws found in low-budget alternatives. We do more than just protect your gas / fuel tank from straight on impact though - we have flared the sides of our skid plate upwards for side impact protection that also helps glide you off the obstacle rather than high center.
The RH4x4 gas / fuel skid plate mounts to your existing fuel tank support mounts for OEM fitment but with the added strength of 3/16" steel and does NOT require you to drop your fuel tank. With any other major vehicle upgrade does come the peace of mind of a professional installation.
Our skid plate system is the industry standard because of the confidence it instills in each and every customer. Each skid is laser cut from 3/16" thick steel coated in our weather and debris resistant powder coat finish. Strength is proven on virtually all Jeep enthusiast forums with glowing reviews. Since 2007 our skid plate system has been the undisputed leader in undercarriage protection.
