1999 WJ Rear Skid Plate and Gas Tank

After 15 Chicago winters, the skid plate on my '99 WJ GCL is finally rotting. Unfortunately, I also have a fuel leak. Without being able to confirm where the leak is coming from, is it possible it's only one of the emission hoses or fuel pump lines?

I'm about to shell out the cash for a new skid plate, but while I'm dropping $100 on shipping just wanted to check with you guys first before adding a new tank and hardware to my order.

The tank is a poly, correct? It simply sits inside the skid plate, right?

Please advise.

Re: 1999 WJ Rear Skid Plate and Gas Tank

The tank rests on two large straps, not on the skid plate. You can/need to remove the skid plate first, to get access to the strap bolts.
Yes, the tank is some kind of plastic stuff. A leak can come from several places. Does it always leak, or only with full tank, or with engine running?
