Mechanical Assistance needed - 06 LJ Gas Tank

Mechanical Assistance needed:

I am needing to drop the gas tank on my 06 Wrangler and replace the hoses for the evap system so I can get it through emissions inspection. While I am somewhat mechanically inclined I have never done something like this and I'm looking for a little help with the project.

I am located in Holladay and this coming week I have Monday and Tuesday off as well as next Saturday and Sunday. I'm willing to offer a little more than the usual pizza and beverages for wrenching assistance and I'll make it worth your time. I really have to get this done ASAP and I'm pretty much going to have to tackle it on Saturday at the latest no matter what. Thanks.


Over the mountains and through the woods, across the stream and up the slickrock, down the canyon and over the rocks to nobody's house I go.

Was throwing code 0456. Took it to the dealer finally and had them track down the leak. Not paying them $300 to fix it. I have the parts. Just need assistance in dropping the tank to effect repairs.

I'd offer to help, but I'd probably just break stuff and get in the way.
