Propane Tank Sheet Metal Modification

Problem: Propane cover hangs too low and catches on brush when off-roading.
Solution: Remove the cover to get a few extra inches of ground clearance. And build a sheet metal
ramp to roll over brush smoothly.


1. Sheet metal from junk pile
2. Some fasteners
3. Sheet metal shears


1. Remove the OE cover
2. Use the existing screw holes to mount a new cover fabricated from scrap metal. I used an old
PV inverter case.
3. Make sure there is a slight ramp to it.
4. Paint it.
5. Done.


Original propane cover hangin’ low with a sharp front edge to catch on brush and stuff.

Finished product – cover removed and adding a little ramp/brush guard in front. Got 2.5” additional clearance.
