Fuel Tank Guard & Skid Plate for RZR XP1000

Thunderhawk Performance invented the first RZR Fuel Tank Skid Plate in 2007. Itís 2014, and the new RZR XP 1000 is built with the fuel tank exposed! So, Thunderhawk Performance designed a new Fuel Tank Guard & Skid Plate for the RZR XP 1000 that offers the same great RZR fuel tank protection that we have been known-for since 2007.

This new part is manufactured from 1/8Ē aircraft-grade aluminum for maximum strength & light-weight, and has been designed to protect the fuel tank from all angles. The Thunderhawk Fuel Tank Guard covers the bottom of the fuel tank where the factory skid plate leaves the fuel tank exposed, the back-side of fuel tank where the tank is exposed to rocks and debris thrown from the rear tire and also covers the section of the fuel tank above the trailing arm. This Fuel Tank Guard provides a strong "skid-plate" surface that will not bend and can support the RZR even when it is sliding over obstacles in the trail.

This part fits with stock or aftermarket skid plates, and is a wise investment even for XP 1000's that have aftermarket UHMW skid plates. UHMW skid plates only cover part of the bottom-side of the fuel tank, and the Thunderhawk Fuel Tank Guard adds protection to the complete back-side of the fuel tank, the remainder of the bottom-side and the area above the trailing arm that is still exposed to damage.

Here's a link for more details and photos of this new product on our website: Thunderhawk XP 1000 Fuel Tank Guard & Skid Plate


Thanks,
Harry

Looks great. I ran one on my 2010 RzRs 800.
Do you have one available for the 900Xp?

Re: Fuel Tank Guard & Skid Plate for RZR XP1000

i got these both for my rzr 1000 and cant believe the fit and durability of them. the gas tank is just sitting there just ready to be punctured or cracked, and the controller is the same.installation is a breeze and well worth it. its a huge piece of mind for a little cost. i will get a full write up very soon with pics for all intrested. thanks thunderhawk

Re: Fuel Tank Guard & Skid Plate for RZR XP1000

We will be adding an option to our website later this week for black powdercoat on the fuel tank guards and electrical system / voltage regulator guards. These parts are out for powdercoating right now, but will not be available to ship until later next week.

Thanks,
Harry
