Quick help: are 78 gas tanks off set to the right?

my new rear crossmember has five square holes punched in it. My new gas tank skid plate has four round ones. The four round holes line up with four of the five square holes if the skid plate is off set to the right or left. I was going to center it and drill new holes until i noticed that the off set would make pefect room for the exhaust to pass by. I dont have a new tank yet to see if everything lines up. Should i drill new holes to center it or leave it off set? Thanks for the help. Merry christmas![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

yep you can off set them to either side to accomadate for your exhaust. most CJs I've seen (including mine) have the tank offset to the right.
