Before I cut it out

Almost done with my two year project. I did a rear stretch and welded in a new rear cross member using 3/16x 2x4 rectangle tubing as others have done. I did the old heat and bend on the tank to clear my 8.8 but I need just a few more inches. Any negatives to cutting out the cross brace that the front of the tank mounts to and either raising it up or replacing it with a 2x2 section of square tubing? I have a 1 inch body lift so I have room to move the tub mounts up.

dont think you will have a problem. i did the heat and dimple thing years ago and it leaked a bit recently from the dimple itself. strange thing it only leaked for a day.
