id give yourself all day to do the lift. had to take off the bumper, ratchet the tank up, then drop the skid. after that you have to measure, cut, remount the brackets, see if it all lines up, and then tack weld. once tack welded, you can take it down again and fully weld it. the only issue we had was the fuel line. we cut a 2" hole to run it through, but had to cut about 1" off the filler tube end so it would fit without any weird kinks or pinches. the cutting, welding, grinding is the most time consuming. i did it with a guy that knows what he's doing and i'd give it 4-7 hours depending upon your skill.

got the maglite brackets at ace hardware, but you should be able to get em at any walmart or outdoor store.

so now it's up between "nip/tuck" and "moneygrubbin ho" what do you all think?

I put mine on the driver side rear window. so it is on the side of the Jeep not the rear window.

shackle mounts came today. took em and dropped them off with the dude and saw his progress. he's got the main mounts made for where the tow hooks mount. .5" 2x4 for the beams, and he's going to do the winch box in 3/16" instead of 1/8" bc he wants the added strength in the winch box. everything else will be 1/8" and the tubing is 1.5" i believe. anyway, he's going to call me when it's ready. i miss my little moneygrubbin ho....
