Protecting a fuel tank

Recommended Posts

I bought a twin fuel tank from Frontrunner (South Africa), and it’s been fitted to my Defender 110 Td5 CSW. (It’s the FRLR47, one under the rear fender and one under the body on the passenger side -LHD vehicle; don’t know if any of you are familiar with this one.)

Though perhaps 2-3 cm above the level of the front-to-rear chassis member, it seems to me it’s quite low down; in addition, at the side, a whole sweep is fully exposed, well below the level of the sill.

It seems rather vulnerable to rock or other damage, and I wonder whether to fit a thick metal plate along the side and underneath. Or would the tank already be pretty strong, and built by Frontrunner with its vulnerability in mind?

Any comments, please?
