Re: Skid plate for transfer case
on that note if you do decide to get the gas tank skid, you will indeed have to drop the tank. If you have 2 people you can do it in about an hour without having to disco the lines. Otherwise you'll need to disco the 3 fuel lines/breathers and 1 electrical connector for the pump. Its actually not that bad of a job. Just make sure you have the fuel line disco tool as they're all quick connect fittings. Also run your tank close to empty otherwise the damn thing weighs a ton. A spare floor jack is also a must to raise and lower it evenly while you mess with the retaining bolts.

Point of the story is once you start you can never quit owning the damn things...
