did the gas tank lift today..
1st off, pics will be up when i wake up in 2-3 days
2nd.. Don't attempt this project without atleast 1 or 2 somewhat knowledgeable friends, and give yourself atleast a day to complete it.
that being said, it was well worth it. i kind of went my own way for sealing up the spare tire well and running the filler lines, etc, but it came out really clean
i drilled a 3 inch hole in the unibody and sent the filler and the other small line that goes with it through that, and capped the hole with a 3" peice of exhaust pipe.
I cut the stock gas tank skid and used the brackets already on it just by welding them back on the skid, like Agitatedpancake did in his wj
and for capping off the old spare tire well, i cut out the bottom of the well, made several vertical cuts down it about 1-2" deep, and then bent it out and welded it back in place, that way the tank could be nice and tucked up against it like in stock form
overall i gained an estimated 6-8" of clearance from what it used to be
my hitch and the evap. box thing are now the lowest hanging things in the rear end.
overall i'd say the project was well worth it, and i deffinately recommend doing this for anyone who wheels their wj anywhere near rocks
