I didn't have to completely drop the tank, but I did have to wedge it around a bit to clear the bolts. If Jeep had simply installed them with the nuts on the inside of the frame (closest to the tank), then it would not have been an issue.
Yeah that's the problem I had. I was not worried about keeping the stock shackles so I just hacked em up to get everything out. Now that I have room to work the upper shackle bolts should not be an issue. One thing is for sure, the new ones will be going in the opposite direction!

Yeah , those main eye bolts suck , I am on my second Yj and in both those bolts were seized . The fist time I spent a good amount of time tryng to pb blast them and beat them out before I took a sawzall to to them . Second time around I tried the impact gun with the same result so I just took an angle grinder to them with a cut-off wheel , took 30 sec .

Yeah these will be getting the sawz all treatment as soon as I get back to work on it. I'm lucky to get a few hours a week on this thing.

Finally got the front axle under this thing. Still need to hook up my hydro steering but it's sitting on at least two tires now. I still need to cut the perches off the rear 9" and weld them where I need them. Hopefully next Saturday it will at least be sitting on all fours. I was strapped for time but I will be taking more detailed pictures next week.

I need to have this thing done by the first weekend in October and it is looking like I will be done by then. I still need to install my SYE, hydro steering and brake lines. I also plan to remove the front fenders until I can get some tube fenders built.

The sye is very simple just make sure you have rtv and a good set of snap ring pliers, and if need be, get a new chain and whatever you need to fix with the chain

Oh yeah, no problem with the sye. This will be the third I've done. No problem so long as all the parts aren't wore out like the last one I did.
