What a Pain!!!
Pull off,Bumper,skid plat, then drop fuel tank.
So he asks me if we can just cut a hole in the floor.
So the 5+ Hr job turned into a 1 hr job. Next time it will take 20 min.
What do you think??

Just sharing the information with everyone on something Widmayer and I did.

I think this is crazy. I just dropped one on a wj for the first time and had it back up in less than an hour.

Its not a jeep if it dont have 4wd.

you can replace a pump from start to finish in less than an hour, its just easier sometimes when you dont have a lift to cut out the floorboard

Its really not a hard process to drop the tank.. Ive done it 3 times now, probably quicker to drop it then start cutting and hope you dont nick or damage anything bad..

Although now that i have added a hitch and the gas tank skid, it would be a little more hassle.. But still I personally wouldnt cut a hole back there..
