    Hmm... His name is Tom - maybe he's going to trick the other guys into doing all that work for him. Probably have them whitewash the fence while they're at it, too... :happy175:

    THAT'S how you upgrade..."Need new shocks, honey...Ironman is a good brand, all the guys on the Forum say so!" (sorry, LeeAnn...meant it in the genderless sense)

    Would be nice if my local dealership would answer the phone or return my messages. I've called them three times. Once after every notice.

    As much as I would like one, I can't see how a skid under the tank would help with a rear-end collision.

    Check out the pics in my thread. It protects more than just the bottom. And when used along with a hitch it's solid back there.

    OH CHRYSLER !!!!!! Why don't YOU just give me the $356.00 for a Skid Row gas tank skid and I'll never bother you again??

    P.S. I won't even bill you for the labor to install...

    if it's a super high speed impact, probably nothing is going to work. We'd all be SOL RIP.

    How does that one compare to the OEM skid?

    For that matter, I didn't see anywhere in the article where they were talking skids. It was mostly grumbling about the slow pace of the hitch install.

    what else could they do for the protection of the tank? i talked to a bunch of the guys here at windsor assembly and they seem to believe that a skid would be the next step.

    I'd favor a ballistic missile defense. Failing that, rear mounted machine guns would be nice. Might make tailgaters think twice.

    Why didn't they just put the gas tank inside the vehicle, safely below the drivers seat like they were in the old jeeps? lol

    I couldn't do that because I have a hole in the floor beneath the drivers seat. It kills two birds with one stone: I use Flintstone propulsion and therefore don't need to fill the gas tank at all. Win-Win.

    I think a roof mounted GE mini-gun would be just about right.

    My Renegade was rear ended over a month ago at about 50-60kph while I was almost stopped, Hitch and receiver hook took most the impact but skid plate was dented in and touching the gas tank, I can imagine the tank would have been damaged if there had been no skid plate and I can't imagine if I did not have a hitch.
