Picked up a comp tank off pirate for a good price and found a few issues when I went to install it.

First the tank hangs 6" below the frame a good inch more than my stock tank.. so much for 1" more ground clearance genrite claims. The tank hung as low as the centerline of my rear at ride height. So my solution was to notch the rear crossmember up about 3" and slide the whole tank up to almost touching the tub. The front mounting tabs wouldnt work with my coilover towers so they got cut off and I used shock tabs welded to the bottom of the frame/side of the skid.

The next issue was my sending unit was 3/4" to long for the new tank. So I measured twice cut once and shortened up the pickups and remounted the fuel pump. You also have to mangle up the float.

So much for a simple bolt on but now only it hangs down 3" from the frame and clears my 3.5" stretched 8.8.

That looks like the Comp tank. If so you do have to make some modifications to install it and get the 1" extra clearance. And as you discovered you have to shorten the fuel pump module needs to be shortened.

Well the suspension works great but could be alot better with some shock tuning. I'll start messing with it in a few weeks once I get a valving kit.

Haha yeah... I'm most likely picking up a pair of radflos for the rear. For the front I've got some shaft bumpers that will go on when the shocks come apart.

I entered in a local tough truck event at raceway park this past weeekend. The jeep held up great and was actually pretty fast through the course. Theres was a ton of mud but plenty of go fast motocross track with some drainage tubes/rocks to climb. I ended up with a 2nd place finish in the 35" and under class.

so this winter we're putting in door bars, lower door panels, window nets, rear amber light and a bladder fuel cell in it so you can do some real racing?

right?

Looks like a lot of fun. I always think your YJ is more like a sleeper with the body relatively stock.
