cut a hole in the gas tank? can someone explain? i also found a good used fuel pump for $20...maybe something i have to go with (christmas and all kind of killed the ole wallet)...

Please raed the swamp linky! It's the first line, you cut a hole in the cargo area to access the fuel pump.

ok, guys, maybe a stupid question, but how do you lift the carpet up? i've got these brackets that i can only imagine are for luggage tie-downs that are above the carpet but stuck on to the body...how's this work? should i just cut through the carpet?

here's a pic to what i'm talking about:

You got more difficult problems after removing the carpet...like how to safely cut a 8 to 10 diameter hole in the cargo bed !!

Easiest way is to loosen the bolts that hold the tank, 2 in the back this will drop the tank enough to clear an accidental slippage with a drill, tank should be empty and you should try to not smoke as much as normally.
Cargo rails? I wasn't supposed to pull those out, sorry I removed mine when I put a rubber floor in.

Before you go cutting a Jeep, understand my ZJ is a utility vehicle, it is made for work.
I fill the back with tools and parts, my dogs are always back there, it has a tent and chairs mounted behind the spare, it has 4 MRE's under the seat, I carry 5 gallons of water and 2 empty 5 gal jerry's. I backed it into a dumptruck and laughed, some one locked up the brakes and hit me pretty hard in the rear, I didn't even lower the radio, I just smiled and waved at her and drove home. I squeezed it through Bonnaroo traffic twice with 12 people hanging on the sides, my point is I don't count scratches, I use the truck and hope to keep it for awhile, so for me it's nothing to cut a hole in the back, even if I have to drop the tank to do it, since next time it will be easier.
Those cargo rails had always annoyed me, they make it uncomfortable to sleep back there.

yeah, i don't mind getting those things out (or scratches or prettiness), but how do you get the damn things out? it's not a bolt/screw that holds it down, looks like it's just supposed to NOT come out!
