So, I spent the day building a gas tank guard/rear slider setup for my EA81 wagon. Wondering if anyone else has done anything to protect the tank? For as much as I see built wheeler Subarus, I always wonder about gas tank vulnerability. I also wanted to build slider bars so that big rocks don't hang up the rear when walking off them. I wil try to post pics once the paint dries......just wondering if anyone else has done a gas tank skid plate?
I got a little mod-happy yesterday. It started with pulling my sway bars and sort of snowballed from there. I made a mesh sport grill by cutting out the old silver parts on the stock grill, painting it black and cutting some honeycomb expandable steel I got from the metal supply place. I also grabbed some aluminum to make a lightweight skid plate for the bottom. It isn't gonna support the weight of the car or anything, but it'll definitely protect against rocks and stumps in the trail. Tomorrow I'm going to the junk yard and pulling a grill guard off a Rav4 to see if I can make it fit on the foz. I'll let you guys know how it goes! Before After The front attaches to the stock threaded holes form the plastic splash guards. Bent it to wrap up the front and tuck it under the towing receivers. Attached the back under the existing subframe plate
