skyj Wow I've been slacking in my Jeep forum reading lately. Sparrows thanks for throwing mine and the others links up to the dimple tank mod. I have been running mine like this for 2+ years now and not a single problem I did have to modify my pickup tube on my fuel pump (had to shorten it up) since I went to a in tank pump so beware of that. With the heating of the tank you got to take it extra slow that plastic is thick and can't be heated up too fast or you do it will burn a soft spot in it. I have enough room for a 4" stretch which I plan to do in the nearer future by cutting my frame mounts off and moving them back.
And as far as using waggy springs I love mine I used a combination of junk yard waggy springs and a main leaf from and xj. It works and flexes real good, in sua I dont get any axle wrap with the V8

I'm halfway through my own dimple mod. Haven't had a chance to heat up the poly tank yet, but welding in the dimple is super easy.

Oh and I stretched mine almost 4" in the back by moving the fixed hanger back around 2.5" (well up 3" which changes the arc of the spring ~1"+, and back 1.5") then used a 1" offset perch on stock springs SOA. Food for thought.

Cheers

Norcal_chris I did my tank. Used it for a month or so and then went for a bigger stretch. Took the tank about 3 months and it undimpled itself.

I used a propane torch and took my time. 3 cycles of heat and straps did it.
