85 gas tank position

So i have been looking and watching videos on 1985 CJ7s and I was wondering where is the gas filler hose suppose to be on the back driver side or passenger side? I am just wondering. Plus does the rear door suppose to fold down or open horizontally?

All CJ7 fuel fillers were at the right rear corner of the Jeep below the tail gate. The tailgate dropped down. The spare tire swung out.

Some guys put YJ tubs on their CJs because of rust. The filler is on the left and the tailgate swings out.

I believe he meant to say below the TAIL LIGHT, not tailgate

Whoops! I was too busy thinking instead of typing. Good catch!

Those hoses can be a bear to get on. If you do like me and have to remove them a few times because you have to drop the gas tank (two times) becuse you installed the gas tank wrong (by crimping the smaller hoses on top), then it really loosens them up!

Well I believe i have an odd looking jeep now. LOL. Cause my gas cap is on the right behind the license plate. Kinda sucks but hopefully maybe i will get that changed down the road. Right now just wanting to get everything right on the Jeep. Do any of you know how to get maybe a little more horse power out of the 4.2 engine? I am looking to buy somethings to get it running better and maintenance wise. But i was it to have a little bit more power since its the original engine with 86,000 miles on it.

Will the wrong tub being on the jeep de-value the resale dramatically

You wouldn't replace it just for fun, so a galvanized YJ tub might be worth more than the rusty bucket it replaced.

Of course my opinion is skewed because I don't value restored jeeps. That's not what they are for & it isn't natural.

The "wrong" tub would definitely put me on alert. If the original tub was rusted out, what about the frame? And since modifications had to be made for it to fit, how well were they done? Who did them?
