Lift design problems

The lift I'm working on involves longer rear leafs, but that would move the rear axle back about 2" - 3". The problem is the gas tank. I'm sure someone has experienced this problem - is there any solution other than relocating the gas tank?

Re: Lift design problems

do you have a body lift? if so have you lifted the tank into that space as well??

83 CJ-7 TF-999, Original stock EVERYTHING when purchased. Now added leafs, shackles and shocks with new 33's. AND FINALLY PAINT !!!!! Now lets break something!!!

Re: Lift design problems

YOU MIGHT WANT TO CONSIDER MOVING YOUR SPRING MOUNTS ON YOUR FRAME, 2-3 INCHES SOUNDS LIKT IT WOULD MOVE YOUR TIRES OUT OF THE CENTER OF THE WHEEL WELLS.

Re: Lift design problems

I scored Austin JPR's '86 20 gallon tank and skid when he moved his back.
He had to go to a fuel cell on top ...

Re: Lift design problems

You really need to center it in the wheelwell, so I won't look you screwed-up, plus you need to make sure it won't hit the tank on full compression

If it comes with instructions, then it's not what the pros use.
