I dont like the look nor how low the skid plat and side covers hang down. The tank itself is probably around 5 inches higher and I think removing them would clean up the look from the driver side. Besides protecting the tank from puncture I dont think they play a purpose correct? My trucks driven on the street 99.9% of the time and on sand or gravel roads the rest so im not worried about puncture all too much

Wonder if aftermarket tanks manufacturers make use of that space to make the tank bigger? Or is there a different Ford truck model that fills the whole area up with a larger tank? Just seems odd that there's any room at all because there's almost zero space between my skid plate and the tank.

Titan sells an optional skid plate for their replacement tanks but it's just another layer of the same material for the underside


my OEM also had a side shield I could see a u-joint failure maybe spiting parts that way ??

as far as removing the shield for looks ? i would be less likely to go for it if it wasn't Diesel but it is:eek:


the only time I ever almost popped a tank in any vehicle wasa stock height truck at the landfill I backed over a bar and it tried to flip up and impale my tank

I've wrecked more tires going to the landfill then I can count. Once I came home to see a three foot piece of thread 3/8" bar sticking out my rear fender, wasn't impressed with that.
