GAS TANK FILLER HOSE(RESTORED CJ W/YJ TUB

Here I go again,First of all I want to thank all of you for your comments and suggestions.Yes its true I restored my 83 cj7 and put a wrangler tub on my frame.Yes there was plenty of modifications,but now im down to the small stuff and im not gonna sweat it.I called around today to get gas filler hose prices,talk about overpriced.Has anyone been down this road.I need the lines going from the filler neck to the tank.(ANY SUGGESTIONS).Im thinking about turning my tank around to make the lines shorter because we all know the yjs filler neck is on the left side .By the way the tub is a 1989.I dont want hydraulic or water lines because of the vicious fluid.

I too am putting on a YJ tub on my 1986 CJ7... but if I understand you correctly... why not use the gas neck and filler your CJ and just drill a hole on the passenger side?

Yes junger Im using my cj gas filler neck.That is an idea (cutting the hole)that I thought about but I dont want to cut any holes in the tub if I dont have to.I think what Im going to do is buy the oem replacement hose and use my old hose and cut and coupling them together.Im not one to cut corners on anything I do.I have spent over six thousand already.thanks for the input junger

Well... I got a great deal on mine since the drivers side rocker panel was bashed in. I got it for $150!! at my local junkyard. I think its a 89 or so. They didn't feel like trying to remove everything, so they gave me the rollbar, pedals, and heater housing as well. I've already fitted my CJ tailgate and moved my body mounts on my frame. I'm going to buy some rear panel guards from warrior (the cheap ones) or some from off your rockers to relocate the gas filler. Basically, remove all all the corner metal and bolt on the new corners... I always try to stick with the KISS principle. I'm trying to decide whether to run a hydraulic clutch or not. Are you running linkage or hydraulic?

I went with hydraulic.Be sure if u go hydraulic to get the correct slave cylinder.Hydraulic I think is alot better than the linkage.By the way look at your firewall they didnt put the hole in it for the clutch rod (from pedal to linkage) How did you mount your tailgate?Im gonna do that to mine and mig my hinges to the tub instead of bolting.

Just finished this part of my tub change-out this weekend, I cut the old corner of my CJ tub off and used it as a pattern on the new tub. Used tin snips to cut the new hole and all of my hoses fit perfect.
Will fill the YJ hole with a piece of metal an a little bondo. The license plate will mount in front of this area anyway.

The only problem with hydraulic, is that you can't replace it on the trail. You can always fix mechanical linkage.
