So I had one of the fuel tank straps break off and basically dropped and shifted the fuel tank onto my drive shaft coming home from work the other day (and yes reading alot of posts regarding this, it snapped where everyone else who had this problem snapped), but, it also cracked the the plastic on the fuel tank protector where it bolts to the front fuel tank straps because of the weight of the full tank. I'm trying to find if there are any aftermarket fuel tank protectors out there that aren't going to cost me over $300 like the OEM protector? I've been searching, but, haven't found anything. Any thoughts?

Thanks for the suggestion. Looks like they only offer it in blue right now, which would almost look like I cut off a piece of recycling bin to cover the tank...LOL !

The OE cover is plastic, so rust doesnt apply...
True, but if you're replacing it anyway, might as well go for something sturdier that adds even more protection. Only if it makes sense, of course. If you aren't doing much offroading, then yeah I'd go for OEM or UHMW.
