It would take longer to cut a hole in the floor than it would take to just drop the tank...

The last time I removed my tank, I did it in my driveway by myself with a jack & it really wasn't too bad. As long a you're careful not to break wiring/fuel connections, it's fairly smooth. You can look up gas tank skid install instructions for good pictures on the process.

That being said...if the tank is rather full it can be a PITA

Remembering my brothers and sisters who have gone before, and those who are still serving. Thank you all.

Semper Fi,

Rockwells in a jeep TJ with a built supercharged V8

I couple more pics of the 4-links done. This one you can see the supercharger setup as well ;-)..


We have swapped the steering knuckles and are atempting to put the steering arm between the bottom 4-link and the drive line. It's going to be tight but nice if it doesn't touch when flexing it out!

On topic, still no lockers. Send money. I did picked up a new center cap, probably sit in the garage for 6 months before I get around to install, lol.

I havent done this on my TJ but I did on my 85 300zx... twice.... with full tanks of fuel and it still wasnt bad... I was thinking about cutting a hole in the body but dropping a tank is EASY.

Almost savvy. A savvy version would recognize that two small screws into thin sheet metal is not quite as good as two larger fine thread machine screws into nutserts. It's also slightly more savvy if you keep the height tucked down as low to the dash as possible for better viewing sorta like this.
