its not a tow hitch, there use to be a swing out tire carrier, and it slide in there for support , also this isnt a DD anymore. and never gonna haul a trailer i have a ZJ for that. i have dozer weld on D rings for recovery. i had to remove them to install the new hangers. i will be welding them back on. here is pics of my recovery points.

Hey that is a good looking Jeep!
Actually that is mine.
The reason I sunk it into the floor was to give me space to put a tool box above it.
The stock pump does work but I have had a problem burning them out.
I have had to replace the fuel pump every couple of years, and this is a play toy so I do not put too many miles on it a year.
The only thing I can think of is the pump is not in the fuel all the time, making the pump hot and burning it up.
Over the winter I extended the fuel line in the sender so the pump would sit on the bottom of the cell.
Thought this would solve my problem but I had to replace it this summer anyway.
I will be going to a external pump this winter.
Make sure when using these cells you use straps to hold them down.
If you just use the tabs that are on the cell they will eventually crack and the cell will leak.

im going to strap mine down. ive been debating on cutting my tank like yours to put my fuel pump in it or to put a inline high pressure pump in. my stock pump is brand new and has a lifetime warranty . have you thought about installing the foam?

No from everything I have read the foam breaks down eventually and clogs everything up.
All my fuel pumps had lifetime warrenties too.
I do not use them though as I know why they are going bad.
It is from abuse not a problem with the pumps.
I guess I am a little too honest.

well ive got it driveable. it feels so weird driving it stretched and wider . ive got a few things to finish up before its trail ready, going to extend my front driveshaft and make some shock hoops. ive done this whole swap/stretch in my front yard, the axles, steering , shocks are all from the wagoneer, the steering box is from astro van, my drive shafts are from a zj grand cherokee made to fit. the only thing ive had to buy new was the RCI fuel cell. and my axle swap kit and hangers from Ruff Stuff


but here is some pics

My new RCI fuel cell has arrived. and i now noticed i screwed up a little, the tank TSEJEEPERS bought was a 2161a tank which is 30L 9W and 12T , i bought a 2162a which is the same tank just on its side. mine is 30L 12W and 9T . i dont think 3 inches wider is gonna matter behind my back seat. ill find out in the AM. if it is ill just move my back seat up enough to clear the tank if there is a problem . good thing is its not as tall so ill have more room and dont need to cut my floor out like TSEJEEPER did.

also TSEJEEPER i got a note with my tank, they No longer have tabs on tanks. the tabs were for location only and people were using them to hold the tanks and it wouldnt hold, tanks require straps.




also i love how seller packed the tank, they foam filled the box around the tank lol

What are you doing for the fuel gauge?
I have read that you can use the one that is already in the fuel cell, but I tried it and it did not work.

Interesting, I did not realize any vehicle came stock with a external pump.
