Once all that comes in the wj will be getting parked so that i can raise the gas tank before the bumper install. Along with finishing the fender cut, monstalinning, installing JCR stage 3 sliders, finishing wiring of the led lights, and installing the rocker switches for all the goodies. Also if time/money allows ill be installing the 231HD with sye and terraflex 2lo, but i need the rebuild kits first.
How much he sell you thay bumper?

Removed intake/exhaust and removed the pan from my son's new WJ. Piston #3 was broken, 3 pcs. of skirt in the pan. What I could see of the cylinder looked okay.Time to order parts and pull the head. The 1/2" 12pt 13mm deep socket is $19 for an SK! Glad I didn't have to buy a Snap-on.
I was amazed that the pan came right off never had that happen before

It's a Jeep, it's not supposed to work right all the time.

that's entirely up to you. i raised my tank a long time ago for clearnace issues, and i no longer have any. now, when i build a bumper, the tank's already tucked up higher than the hitch frame, so it's protected.

you can install and after market bumper with our without your tank raised. i actually think most bumpers are made to fit standard tank placement bc there's not a lot of guys that have actually lifted the tank.

but my $.02 is that it's a great mod.

it can wait. I just figure if i have to take all the bolts that hold the tank up out, might as well drop the tank and do the tuck. Plus the new bumper doesnt cover the tank as much as the stock on so its going to stick out like a sore thumb.

cool, thanks for the tip! Ive got a tank and skid out already from one of my part outs. I may use it to mock up an actual hd skid for the tank. Maybe 3/16 thick steel or something to that effect. Might as well right? lol

no reason not to if you've got the stuff to play. i've dropped on some heavy stuff though, and haven't done more than scratch my factory tank skid. and i usually try to glance off the side anyway so the hitch takes the brunt

Glad you asked. I parked it at storage and have left it sitting for two days wondering what it had done to deserve such complete and utter disregard.
Sorry, WJ, times are tough for all things 4-wheeled and gas guzzling when there's a motorcycle nearby to enjoy all this grand weather with.
