If what you have does not seal properly then another idea may be having a local machine shop fab up a ring like the picture with a counterbore. That way you can add your RTV and when you tighten the nuts the pressure will remain even. The flange will also sit flush with the top of the tank and you may not need the extra bead of RTV around the diameter.

It would be awesome to have an "O-ring" groove around the outside edge and inner edge. Maybe even machined for O-rings around the bolt holes. But, all that machine work would cost a fortune.

I would not know the sizes needed because unfortunatly I do not own a jeep. I went on a wheeling trip a month ago, here in SoCal, with a buddy and decided that I must own a jeep ASAP. So here I am lurking threads and formulating a plan to buy and start a build of my own. I read about the potential leaky fuel cell issue and thought hmm I'll hop on solid works and draw up what my solution would be. If there are any vendors out there that already provide this solution I apologize.

I'm t minus 8 weeks away from having a co-pilot!

I still haven't figured out how to tell the wife.........

After messing with the back seat all day, I think we are just going to scrap it and build a custom single seat rear. That way we can do the SWAG container mount (or similar) beside it for the tools, etc.

Well, it went on like a matching puzzle piece! Perfect fit and the edges actually clamp down so that gap between the mount and base is no longer there (that we discussed earlier).


Lining up to drill the holes:


Plenty of room to close the door:


Holes drilled, top on, bolted down and ready to roll!

Artec Industries fuel cell mount:





That gap you see on the left side will go away once I tighten the bolts up to spec.

I may regret not wet sanding the paint, but I was in a hurry to get it buttoned up. Totally pleased with the fit and finish of the Artec fuel cell mount!

NOW AVAILABLE!!! ORDER HERE. INTRODUCTORY SALE $87.99



The RCI 2161a Fuel Cell Bracket is designed to add style, simplicity, and strength in securing your fuel cell. The RCI 2161a fuel cell is a popular choice for Jeep Wrangler owners due to its compact size and fit behind the rear seat. The problem with the fuel cell is that it comes with small aluminum tabs that break easily and allows the fuel cell to become unattached. Don't compromise your safety; secure your RCI fuel cell with this Artec Fuel Cell Bracket. Get a mount that's more stylish than two straps of steel.

Features two CNC cut and bent top cut from 16 gauge cold roll steel and two 10 gauge bases for uncompromised strength. Bases are strong enough to flush mount to sheet metal tub, or hold the entire weight of the filled fuel cell on bushings or welded to a chassis. 4 pieces total.

Fits 15 gallon RCI fuel cell model 2161a which measures 30x9x12. Bare steel finish, requires paint, powdercoat, or plating to not rust.

New sliders and rear armor are being built right now. The front is on the list, but a few projects behind.

Needs:
Armor painted
Resi shocks
Single seat project

Wants before November:
Front and rear air bumps

End-o-year project:
Rear anti-rock


All of those projects/mods will work with better axles too. So I'm shopping around for some deals, tough to pull that off though with some of the other stuff going on. But fun to window shop.


Couple of ideas for the back seat area:

Something similar to this, but for one seat:





Also, would like to setup something like this as well so I don't have any loose things laying around:

I really like the idea of having a Campbell hood on yours, and my, jeep. It would look slick, cut down on weight, and be unique. All you need is some custom aluminum inner fenders

Mallard ^ -I hope to have these rear corners off in a week or so, let me know if you are still interested in them.



So, a little project has popped up that wasn't in the plans.

(Cellphone shot)


ARB copper line got chewed up. 2 years of wheeling it nearly every other weekend with no issues, then this happens. The crazy part is, I ran the rocks at The Farm with no issues, trailer it to The Flats two or three weeks later and the locker won't engage after backing off the trailer. I must have done some crazy mall crawling in between then .

Greg Slade at 4 Wheel Parts hooked me up- new air collar and o-rings are in route. I hope to have it fixed by this weekend.
