Can I make reservations now for when you open your museum?

I do have to say that it makes sense you should have a Comanche Eliminator. It should fit right in with the theme. And that looks like a very nice one.

Looking for a 99 to 01 OEM factory gas tank skid plate.

Need a nice one, not dented or rusted too bad.

Re: 2 door Cherokee 01 with 25,000 miles... mild build for daughters first Jeep

How do they differ over the years?

I have one, which I believe is from a late model, but I can't tell you from what year. If you can tell me how to distinguish it from a '97-'98 vs '99-'01 I can try to figure it out.

Re: 2 door Cherokee 01 with 25,000 miles... mild build for daughters first Jeep

Oh and when I sourced an '97 and up skid for my '00 I drilled 2 more holes in it.
I replaced the nutstrips with aftermarket factory type ones, they had mounting points there for bolts so figured why not. Not really sure why there wasn't a hole on each side of the skid to correspond with the nutstrip though.

This is a 99+ skid




This is a 95-96 skid.





It is my understanding that the 97-98 XJ didn't have exact skid, but used the early ZJ skid. ZJ skid leaves a gap between tank and hangs down lower.

What I have doesn't look like that. The curved flap around the one side of the front would be hard to miss.

I am going to guess mine are all earlier.
