Re: Article on lifting gas tank because of body lift

i don't think it will work on YJs because of the crossmember that goes above the gas tank. it will work on TJs though.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

Re: Article on lifting gas tank because of body lift

I raised mine up about 1.5" when I had the body off. I cut out a section of the upper lip of the crossmember, made some drop brackets to bolt the tank to the top of the frame rails and re-bent the stock skid plate to bolt up to the back of the frame instead of under it. The tank can still be removed from the bottom if needed.
