My fuel tank skid plate is in very bad shape. Can I put a couple of adjustable straps around the gas tank and hook them to the frame? Will it pass safety inspection that way or what can I do to get it safety checked without replacing the fuel tank skid plate?
Do you
have the same problem?

I seriously doubt any inspector would pass that. Just pick up a used plate at a junkyard.

Thanks for the help. I found a use one at a salvage yard is it possible to change the skid plate on my gas tank without taking the gas tank completely down or off? Thanks

You do not have to take the tank down, but you will have to support it in place somehow once the skid plate is unbolted.

Hello again I can't seem to get my emergency brake to work on my 2004 grand jeep Cherokee larado with a 4.0 liter engine I put new shoes on and adjusted them up til they just let the rotor go on and the cables are hooked up to the actuator but the shoes still do not open up when I pull the handle for the emergency brake I am wondering is there some thing wrong with the actuator and if there is are there a way to free it up to get my shoes to open up THANKS
