You can do it without any welding.

Couple of techniques for how to attach the skid back to the frame rails after cutting.

Yeah no welding required. Cut out the wheel well, cut the mounting flanges off your tank skid, slide it up and bolt it in. It takes a little more than that but those are the big steps. Took me about 4 hours total and maybe $25 total.

Yeah my jeep projects are the cause of 90 percent of fights between the wife and I. I blame this forum for all of that too. If you want to learn to fab get an old jeep. Somehow I talked the wife into an old CJ5 a while back and that thing is where the torch and welder come into play.

Did that today also. They were always good until this morning when I gave a nice young lady a jump of my battery. After work went straight to auto zone. All better!!

Or daughters. Something happens every time. The last time one of my girls drove it, the heat stayed on. I was pissed, because I had already fixed the blend doors with one of those kits. I decided to just unplug the battery, I had to clean posts any way (stealership always takes my felt washers when they work on my battery). After cleaning up battery and putting it back together, everything ran fine.
