The more I think about it, the more I don't know where I'm going to run that damned cell. My cage makes filling it a real pain in the *** if I put it where I had planned to.

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

I was thinking you should sink it in the floor at the tailgate like Blaine does. Nice Aluminium skid and cover over the top.

I'd have to build a box to cover the top of it that flipped open to protect the pump assembly. And I'm sure I'd never get the damned thing sealed well enough. Plus skid plate the bottom. I don't know. We'll see. I may let you talk me into it.

As hard as it is, you have to look at the jeep one project at a time and just tackle it when time allows. When you look at it as one big project with tons of things still to be done it can be pretty overwhelming which I'm sure you're feeling. I've gotten pretty stressed out in the past thinking about how much needs to be done and the fact is, if you just tackle it one little thing at a time, a lot gets accomplished and you don't stress about it as much. Make it fun by working on things you want to work on, when you have time to work on them. It will all come together in the end

I've been spending a couple hours here and there working on a couple of brackets or cutting out parts and I try my best to not focus on how little is getting done each time I work. I just know that doing a little bit each day will eventually get the big project done and it becomes fun to see all your hard work come together.

Would something like this not work for you? It all but silences the pump noise, passes Ultra4 tech rules for a firewall, and is some serious blinging aluminum .










It's just sitting in my garage right now. PM me if you thought in any way it would work.

I had originally intended to run my cell at the front of the cargo area, with the filler right behind the drivers seat, up against my cage so i could still fit a cargo box in the back and a spare when I want to. My problem with mounting position isn't SO much about noise as it is filling position vs storage. I really don't want to have to unzip a window completely just to fill up, and because I wanted my seats/cage designed more for safety instead of aesthetics, they just don't leave much room for a fill up, even if I slide the seat all the way up.

If I move the cell to the back like yours, I essentially waste all of the space in front because of the shape of my cage, and if my top is on, I definately won't be able to reach anything.

Blaine and I had an interesting conversation about using the rear footwells as a potential site for tanks (plural). That could be an option for you, perhaps, and could also allow exterior access if you get creative. Aside from that thought, the next-easiest option would be a high-clearance tank in the normal location; that could be especially simple if you aren't as concerned about capacity as I am. Either way you go, filling from the outside is the way to go if at all possible, methinks.

That would be good except the filler on the side and low would be really susceptible to damage and really hard to go thru just behind the seat.

I'd select a recessed fill if at all possible, similar to the stock setup. It might be a tight fit or require some non-linear thinking, but I think the extra thought and fab work would pay off with a cleaner and more user-friendly install.

My doors and tailgate will NOT look that good when I paint them, no matter how hard I try. Very nice work, there.
