so I got around to installing a new rear bumper on my TJ and I broke off one of the bolts for the tank straps while trying to undo it. Now I've got to drop the whole thing to replace what I broke.

lesson learned: nothing is as easy as you see on youtube.

It never fail, fix one thing break another. My biggest fear in my life is I may have to wrench on my jeep, because odds are against me that things will go smoothly

Funny story but not to you Iím sure. It happens to the best of us and is always frustrating to say the least. If you have to mess with gas and fumes be very careful if using a droplight. Good luck.

Thanks fellas. I really do not get upset, I just get frustrated due to lack of time to tackle the expanded project. It's all good though because that's really how I learn to wrench. I'm from the school of self taught mechanics cause I break everything I own...heck, you should see my other car!
