Thanks toms

I think I'll go with em too. Do you know what's the difference between the regular shackles and the boomerang Ones?

They are made to clear the frame/bumper in the rear during extreme flex and some people say they can prevent spring inversion up front. I say "some people" because I have not experienced it first hand and I have seen some debate about this ability.

Boss, BDS recommends shackles with some lift because their spring packs are "military wrap" style and due to that extra depth at each eye, it is common for the middle cross member of zero lift shackles to strike that "extra" leaf at each eye. I have my 2" BDS installed with zero lift boomers right now, but don't have the center bolts in them. Not sure if I am going to change that or not. Likely will if it appears to be harsh on the bushings.

Thanks firefighter,

You always have helpful advice.

Dumb question. How can I tell if I have a 15 or 20 gallon gas tank without filling it?

I don't know much, but hope I can help from time to time.

I think prior to the '91 model year, there were actually two different tanks used for this option. The 91-95 model years were the ones to utilize one 20 gallon tank with a longer vent tube stuck down that fitting to let the pump believe the tank was full at 15 gallons for those unwilling to pay the extra for the 20 gallon option. I have already done this change, but had my tank off at the time, so all I had to do was yank that tube out and cut it down. If you are unsure if this has been done to yours yet, I would run the tank down to as close to empty as I dared, then fill up to see if I can surpass 15 gallons at the pump. If so, it's already been done. If not, then go for it, its an easy and beneficial modification.

EDIT: Sorry, I just remembered that you wanted to find out without filling the tank. If you access the vent fitting on the corner of your tank (right next to the filler fitting) and pull the small inner tube out of it, you'll be able to tell. From the factory, this tube was around 9 - 9.5" long. If it is only as long as the vent fitting on the tank, the modification has already been done or it may have come from the factory with the 20 gallon option. The tube actually goes down into the tank itself from the vent fitting. The top of it will be inside of the vent fitting and fluch with the top of it. Sorry for the confusion.

Picture picture....

From the same people who sell the replacements, pumps, and senders...at the time I got them...cheaper than anyone else...

http://www.mtscompany.com/images/jeep/0062.jpg

0062 is the 15

http://www.mtscompany.com/images/jeep/0065.jpg

0065 is the 21

This site SHOULD be considered PORN for anyone that has tried to find a new replacement unit and goodies.

http://www.mtscompany.com/index.htm

With all sex comes STDs if your not careful....the fuel pump gasket they sell with their units is cork. I put it on while I had my other one in a box. The first fill I smelled gas until I got the tank a few gallons down. Dropped tank, put rubber OEM recall quality seal back on. No issues since.

Por 15 help!!!

Also,

yet another dumb question dont laugh at me...

I am getting ready to paint my frame and have a few question before doing so. Anyone that has used por 15 before will be able to help. My question izz when I paint the frame with this stuff do I need to cover up the bolt holes on my frame? My concern is that when I paint the frame and the paint goes into the holes and dries I wont be able to get the bolt in. Should I screw the bolt in and then paint it? I am worried about this and am not sure how to do it. This paint says it case hardens which makes me think twice about what I am going to do.

Please any advice helps bc I am painting it saturday. Its supposed to be 70 and sunny here

Also here is a pic of what I mean. Its of the front bumper bolt hole and one with a bolt in it.

There are two ways to handle the bolt holes. You don't want to get the POR in there, because it will make the bolts hard to put back. The POR will build up in the threads.

The first is to mask the threads with some tape. This takes time, and if you don't get the tape to seal all the way it will allow some POR onto the threads.

The way I do it is to not worry about the threads when I apply the POR, then chase all of the threads with a tap to clean the threads up. This also will remove any rust in the threads.

YMMV

Thanks guys. I knew it wouldn't be a big deal, but I was nervous for some reason.

Plymouth, I think ill just do what you said. Paint it and then use a tap. Probably the easiest and best way I think.

Thanks again

LOL. Use marshmellow earplugs! I bought about 30 at Ace, for a quarter a piece. Clean, prep, then squeeze them and insert in the holes. Later, when dry, pull em out. I did this for POR and Herculiner. Even if they don't pull right out easy, you can poke through with a screwdriver or just screw the blt in the remaining foam in the cracks and it will clean it out for you.
