I pulled out my leaking gas tank..the CJ5 is in my townhouse garage and the tank started leaking after I was using the impact wrench trying to get the bumper off. I think I shook some rust loose...lol. I am in the process of pulling the cancer ridden body off to do a body off resto and fiberglass body replacement. My single car garage is a bit full right now...and my wife asks everyday what that smell is...lol (usually PB Blaster) But, the leaking gas tank was pretty bad. The stale gas smell permeated the house. It's all good now...leaky tank in the back yard and happy wife again.

I just filled mine up with sand... MY bro in laws and I went to juniper dunes in WA.

Don't eat vegetables from a garden that was formerly a cemetery.
