Did you change your license plate (rear) location ???? That was one
of the worst ideas ever having gas cap under the plate --- I do not
have 3 hands every time I fill it YJ up. I also have a 4 banger, manual,
1995.

thanks, Randy PS: I have a 16 yr old PITA teenager and I would
trade him in for three 5 yr olds in a minute !!!!!

I pulled the plate off and i have it attached to my spare tire/carrier for now. I am trying to figure a good place but it has been there for a while now. No problems so far with not having a light on it at night. But it sure is nice to have the tank clear of it. I am actually moving to a TJ filler neck as soon as i have some spare time to do it. I hate the location of it and the pump turning off and gas going all over everytime i fill up.

So as a few of you know, I am putting xj rear leaves in the back of my jeep flipped around to stretch the wheelbase 6in. I was going to move my front hangars around, and redrill my perches to only get 3-4 in and keep the gas tank in its location. But that is no fun... right :haha:


So I did this.




At this point my wife came outside to see what all the racket was and Was doubting what I was doing and asked why I was ruining my jeep lol.

test fitting my spare tank.





And finished










I moved my rear seat all the way up so the rear holes on the bracket were in the front holes in the tub and it looks like i can split the difference and gain some more leg room.





Now i just need to grab a TJ style filler neck and make it on the driver side and make a removable cover for the tank and Its finished.

Now I have plenty of room to stick that axle back. Oh also If you didnt notice, I cut the stock rear crossmember off and welded in a piece of 1.5x4 .250 wall. The sides will have fishplates, and that is what i will mount my rear hangars onto.

I will take some pics when i change it up again. Basically i used the rear boxed section of the tub that goes across under the tailgate as a support. It is nice and flat. I just drilled some holes in some 1x2 box tube i had and welded those flat to the flat part of the tub. The back of the stock skid bolts to this and the lip of it is supported as well. The front i welded some angle iron to the front of the skid and it bolts to the front of the tub right at the hole i cut.

So the skid is the cradle and is bolted to the tub, and the tank is attached to the skid like it is stock, with the 2 straps.

Xj rear springs are in. Axle is wayyyyyy back. Tires are almost flush with back of tub.

thinking im gonna shorten the rear shackle an inch or so to bring it down a little, but the spare tire and hilift are not on there so that may bring it level as is.







I tryed to keep as much as i could in the back to make it looks less agressive to appease johnny law. We will see how that goes.

Looks good! I have this planed for my jeep as well. Only thing that doesn't look so good is the shackle angle, I think you would be way more happy if the shackle angle was more like 30*. It should ride Nd flex better that way...

I actually have that in the plans. I am moving my front mount up closer to the frame and back a touch to make the shackle angle a little more angled. It rides nice now, but the added angle will be nice to firm it up back there. More angle=stiffer rate.

From my experience, anything from 20-35* will ride better then a 90 or 45...
