Have you ever heard the sickening sound of your plastic fuel tanks hitting something solid? and then realising you have to continue, because the vehicle (non LR) is stuck.
I promise you, that you will wish:
(a) that the damage won't stop you traveling the 80+ miles home
(b) that you had fitted the Mantec tank guard.

To be honest you have to be clumsy/trying too hard to damage the sump on a FL2, but the front bib is easily damaged.
God forbid that you hit a hidden solid object when crossing muddy water. Tangiers Orange - gone, missing her

saw that on ebay, and also saw a second hand sump and tank mantec guard but it was collection only from down south so no good for me up norf - FL2 3.2 i6 - There is no Replacement for Displacement

If my wife ever sells my stuff for what I told her I paid for it, there will be some bargains out there!

What the man said - I ended up with with my tank hitting the ground during one of the sections on my 2nd or 3rd Green Road runs. Looked underneath to check as best I could at the event but I was well wary until I could check the extent of the damage.

I fitted both the Mantec Sump & Tank guards before I did any more events.

I searched but did not find an answer...

Are the mantec sump/tank guards the same for all fl2's or is there a difference pre/post 2011?

I'm trying to find one to fit on my hippo but would hate to get the wrong one (if there is a difference).

Also if anybody is willing to part with theirs please pm me Very Happy

I think that the Mantec parts were designed very early in the fl2 life. I’d fitted the later bibs to the front of my car 2007 and had to take them off again to fit the sump guard.

The sump guards fit MY07 to MY12 (don't know if one was produced for MY13 onwards)
Not sure on fuel tank guard tho, but as it uses brackets I'd reckon one could get it to fit all models. 🌲 🌲 🌲 🌲

In Jan 2018 I installed a genuine Mantec front protection plate.
Picked this up second hand, although it is a '317' (model to fit later FL2) I went into the work shop and converted it to a '316' (earlier model FL2) plate. Drilled a few holes made packing spacers, job done. [in fact this plate will now fit ALL model years of FL2s]
