CJ7 progress pics

Hi all

Just wanted to share some pics I took when working on the '7 today.
Put on rear SS brake lines from Classic Tube and fit the new 15gal. plastic tank. Thanks to a lot of helpful jeeper's in here, I have now figured out the proper way to mount the brake backing plates . Just need some small parts before I can finish the rear brakes.

Why won't it show the pics?

Oh, okay then. Thank you....but that sucks a little, 'cause when others want to see the pics, they have to click the link instead of just seeing them imediately?

I LOVE that gas tank skid plate. That thing is sharp, but everything else looks great too!

How come the rear diff is offset?
It looks like an AMC 20?
Off set?

Sharp gas tank skid. I have always seen them advertised but never have seen one on a Jeep. Jeep looks good.
