Nothing special, just a unique paint job that definitely separated my Jeep from a crowd.

My fuel pump and sender unit access. It paid off when ihad to replace my fuel pump in 10* weather after dark just last winter.

On the outside:
  • hood bumpers so I can lay the hood against the windshield
  • LoD tire carrier and bumper
  • Outlaw I wheels
  • slightly color mismatched half doors in the summer

My most favorite mod which isn't visible has to be my York OBA, with the hand throttle a close runner up.

I didn't post it, but I've done the same thing. If you'd like dimensions on where to cut, let me know.

Also, I wouldn't recommend cutting with the fuel pump in place. You'll end up cutting through the wiring harness and fuel lines (not to mention throwing sparks on the "now leaking" gasonline). I did mine on my replacement tub before I installed it.

My Jeep was down for almost two years during the rebuild and a week after I got it up and running, my fuel pump went out. I was never so exicted to change an "in-tank" pump. It took less than 10 minutes.

LOL, I guess that I didn't do a write-up on this. Oops.

I had read somewhere of this being done to a Jeep, so I had decided to perform this mod while it was still warm out. Even though it had rained on me that day, this mod was going to be finished before dinner time.

This is what I had started out with. I had cleaned out everything from the back to make things easier to work on. I knew that there would be sparks flying when icut out the floor board, so I had eliminated all chances of something burning because of a spark.
http://s1107.photobucket.com/user/rk...F7451.jpg.html

We have a tin shop at my work. I had a co-worker bend me up some 24ga galvanized trim to use as a trim ring and a lid mount.
http://s1107.photobucket.com/user/rk...F7455.jpg.html

I had taken some measurements, not only of the floor, but also as to the location of the sender unit.
http://s1107.photobucket.com/user/rk...F7456.jpg.html

Before I had started cutting out the hole, I had dropped the tank a short ways and laid wet shop towels on top of the tank as to reduce the chances of sparking a fire. This also allowed me to clear the hoses out of the way so that I did not cut them. I had raised the tank back into place to check and see how everything was lining up.
http://s1107.photobucket.com/user/rk...F7457.jpg.html

Here are some of the tools that I had used. I bought a cheap circular saw to use for all of my (portable) metal cutting needs. I also had a set of metal shears used for metal roofing and flat stock, a hand grinder to smooth out the burrs, and a small assortment of hand tools(not pictured).
http://s1107.photobucket.com/user/rk...F7452.jpg.html

I measured my hole once again and cut the trims to their appropriate lengths.
http://s1107.photobucket.com/user/rk...F7458.jpg.html

Once I was happy with the fit, I predrilled holes through the trim pieces and the floor pan to install rivets.
http://s1107.photobucket.com/user/rk...F7465.jpg.html

I used the lid of an old 55 gallon drum as the lid for my fuel pump access. I measured the dimensions betweem the steps of the trim.
http://s1107.photobucket.com/user/rk...F7466.jpg.html

My first test fit went well. I had predrilled holes and tapped in some sheet metal screws. I used a #8x1/4" for the screws.
http://s1107.photobucket.com/user/rk...F7468.jpg.html

Once satisfied with the fit, Iremoved the access plate and sanded it down to bare metal. I then took a can of red paint and painted both sides to reduce the chance of rust.
http://s1107.photobucket.com/user/rk...12024.jpg.html

I am glad that I had performed this mod last year, as that my fuel pump had went out on me in the dead of winter when it was way below freezing.

It was bone-chilling cold when my pump had failed, but as I was working on my fuel pump I was grinning ear to ear because I took the time to make an access hole back when it was warmer out. Of all of the modifications that I have EVER done to all of my rigs, this is by far the BEST mod that I have ever performed.

In my opinion, you went through a lot more work than is needed, with the little metal frame and all. I just used a new larger piece of 16 gauge metal to make a panel, screwed it directly to the floor, done.
