yes, definatly do not just bolt it down with the 4 tabs. They are not strong enough by themselves.

I used threaded rod. Welded a nut on the one side and fed it from under the jeep. Than used a nut to fasten the lower tabs down, than made a cradle to hold the top and compress the cell so its snug.

so when getting this cell, I assume you get one that does not have a sending unit and sump. You remember the part number by chance? Summit is about 30 minutes away from my house, so the next time I am up there I will just grab one. An I assume you just open up the tailgate to fuel up? And does the cab smell like gas fumes being that it is inside the rig?

Yes I have to open my tailgate to fill up. When the gas pump clicks off you are done. Do not try and put any more fuel in it.
I have never had a problem with fuel smell.
I just left the sending unit that comes with the cell intact. I do not think you can buy them without them.

you just cap off all the ports on the cell other than the breather since you ran your stock pump/sender? What ya cut the hole in the cell with for the pump/sender and did ya just use the factory type seal?

There are 3 ports that are located on the top. Fuel out (to engine), Vent (has a check ball for rollover), and Fuel in (back to the cell from pump). The stock pickup is JUNK! If your off-road it does not like having under 3 gallons or so. People take the stock pickup out of the jeep and cut a hole on the top of the cell and put theirs in. This is what I'm going to do mid winter. I run an external fuel pump that sites under the jeep. I have zero issues. You will get the fuel smell unless you mount the vent line to somewhere outside the jeep.

Anyone got a part # for the fittings need to go from a -8AN SS line to the fuel rail on 4.0L I figure I might as well run all new lines to and from the motor. Just cant seem to find the adapter needed.

I am trying to throw up some ideas on how to mount up my rear shocks, I have read to mount them close together at the top and far apart at the bottom, any suggestions on best way to mount them up?

You drive this thing everyday? Or just sometimes? If sometimes then mounting them at the angle you described /\ would be fine, but personally I like mine to be as close to straight up and down as possible.

Options:

Mount em like you said.../\
Outboard - more work, some welding, some fab, best results (IMO)
Keep em in the somewhat stock configuration and use extenders for the stock upper mounts (something like the M.O.R.E. extenders) - easy to install, almost the stock way

I outboarded mine and dont regret it at all.
