Rock Jock 60, someone else listed Pro Rock. I contacted Dynatrac but it seemed very difficult for them to put a quote together for me so made my decision easier.

Have some updates, Installed my Genright crawler tank last weekend.

Install was pretty straightforward, After carefully unplugging the stock fuel lines and Evap lines you can lower the stock fuel tank.



Next you need to remove the stock fuel pump, there is a steel lock ring that can be removed with a hammer and punch, then the fuel pump can be removed, be very careful with the float when removing the fuel pump you will need to angle the pump quite a bit to get it out of the tank without bending the rod.



Once the stock fuel pump is removed, you will be reusing the Oring from the stock GT in the new Genright. I used some white lithium grease after cleaning the oring to reinstall it in the new tank.



There is a small tab on the fuel pump that has to be removed, I used my dremel and zipped it off. The Genright tank uses a threaded aluminum ring instead of the steel lockring that the stock tank had, I had to sand the perimeter on the top of the fuel pump so the threaded ring would not bind and twist the fuel pump. There is an arrow on the fuel pump that needs to line up with the sharpie mark on the Genright tank.



The Genright tank has a simplified Evap setup, all of your stock tank connections attach no problem, the quality of the tank is outstanding. Here is a picture of the tank with stock lines reattached and ready to slide it into place and mark holes on the frame where the new tank will mount. The Genright EXT tank gives you 4-5" of additional room, I am hoping to be able to move my Rock Jock 4 inches back.



Once I had the tank in place, I marked the frame where two holes will need to be drilled. One for each of the forward ears on the skid plate, the Genright tank does not use the stock forward gas tanks mounting position since it is located farther back. I found it easier to remove the upper rear shock as the holes were very close to the shock body, once you drill the frame there are supplied spacers that go inside the frame to keep the frame from crushing once everything is tightened down.



If you have any questions please feel free to PM me, I did not take as many pictures as I should have and when I do my 4 link/stretch in the next couple months I am going to take as many pictures as possible. Gained an inch in ground clearance and 4 inches for the stretch. I did get some codes after the install, P0455, P0456 and P0457. I was able to clear two of the codes, small Evap leak and loose gas cap but still have P0455 which is Gross Evap leak. After I installed the Genright tank I used a buddies 5 gallon gas tank and the nozzle had a funky tip and when I removed it from the Fuel neck filler it was stuck behind the little trap door that seals after you fill up at the gas station. I bent the hell out of it and now it does not seal, not sure if this is why I am getting a code as all of the stock Evap lines are hooked up properly.

Here are some pics of the new tank installed.

Nice! I hate to hear about evaporative leaks, but they're not usually hard to trace and fix. Good looking tank skid, too.

Yesterday I decided to install my sPOD, figure out where I am going to mount my ARB compressor for the front/rear ARB's, raise my drivers seat up an inch with the spacers that Garza so kindly donated and mount a pair of HID's lights I have had sitting in the garage.

I pulled the trigger on an sPOD last week, it's a pricey bit of kit but I like the clean look and ease of installation for future accessories and where the switches are located.



Installing the sPOD was very simple and requires no tools other than a screwdriver, some wrenches and a 1" hole saw, you will need to drill a hole in the passenger side firewall to route the harness cable through. The stock plastic windshield header is replace with the metal one from sPOD.



The sPOD bracket is aluminum and mounts on the firewall using existing ground holes, I will be using my sPOD for ARB compressor, Front and Rear lockers, Auxillary HID lights, ARB fridge and Rock lights.

Mike did you still want to see these pics, I took some for you and can post them if you want?

Yeah. That would be great. Mostly I was just looking for a picture of where the back sheet metal and bottom of the tub comes together from underneath. Thanks again.

Those are some extremely useful pictures of the gas tank area; thank you. Now I can see exactly which pieces of metal are going bye-bye when it comes time to build my tank.
