Q James Meyer • 05/12/2020, 7:27:12 PM I have an RCI transfer case skid plate (with cross member) installed on my 2018 4Runner. Will this gas tank skid fit in behind it? Thanks.

Q Dan • 11/02/2020, 10:59:30 PM I noticed on a competitor website that their gas tank skid was not compatible with the TRD Pro. Do you have any issues with fitment?

Q Mark • 11/16/2020, 7:21:05 PM Does your skid plate sit lower than the OEM fuel tank shield? Another option I'm considering sits about two inches lower. Trying to avoid losing any ground clearance. Thanks

The quality of this skid plate is good and very clean welds. It was actually kinda hard to put on because I believe one of the arms is too short. Used a jack to jack it up and impact wrench to tighten up everything.

Great gas tank skid. Very thick and robust compared to stock gas skid. Does not hang low like some other gas tank skids, main reason why I went with victory. Install was easy. Very impressed.

The actual skid is very well made and heavy duty, providing excellent protection for the fuel tank. I ordered the aluminum version so it's pretty lightweight as well for how heavy duty it is. The only problem is is that it doesn't fit well without additional shimmy and moving so that you can prevent chafing against a fuel tank. I was able to use additional shims and washers to make it work, but it didn't work out of the box so to speak. Overall, I'm still happy with it and it's a good value and well made.
Note From Victory 4x4: Darrin, thanks for the review. Glad you got it to fit, but if you ever have an issue fitting any of our products please reach out to our tech support team. We would be more than happy to help figure out what's up.
