/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif Hi Don. Jeepchick and I went through this several months ago, trying to figure out what the tail end of the CJ should look like. A LOT of thinking and ideas were sifted, and a lot of good input by Jeep guys. Here is what happened: (1) We wanted to be able to FUEL our CJ without taking all day and spilling two-dollar per gallon gas, so that meant re-doing the filler. THEN I wanted to get rid of the corners on the existing lamps which always catch on my welding jacket and unsnap it when I move around the Jeep, and always seem to hang up on berry vines when we go through thickets. SO...........we got a Chevy van circular recessed fuel filler from a Jeep guy who had an extra, and we bought after market taillamps from NAPA which had side markers. We put the fuel filler high and on the right...sort of where the RH taillamp was...the lamps are low....about where the filler was. We use tractor lamps for backup mounted on the bumper. The fuel hose makes a gentle downward ninety into the tank. We of course bought blank diamondplate corners for the rear of the Jeep./wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif

/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif I have the original drawings that show the entire tail end. I'll send you a copy. Post your PO address to my personal e-mail and I will send you this stuff. We thought about ALL KINDS of arrangements, including a side fill, but ended up with this. This drawing is to scale and is for the '79 CJ7 I'll get the part numbers and write them on the dwg as well./wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif

/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif I noticed one of my moonguys/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif reading an article about putting the filler on the side. Would you like the straight scoop on that system??/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif

Don, We looked at a slew of possibilities for side mounting, and we have a nice article aout doing just that very thing. It was, however, easier to go to the high right rear spot and move the lamps. We wanted to change to a different lamp anyway. If you go in the side, you can use the late Jeep filler neck, OR the Chevy route van part like we did. The Jeep filler neck bolts to the inside of the Chevy recessed filler housing very neatly. Going on the side means some minor trimming to the inner panel of the body as I recall. You should get a big envelope soon with some Jeep stuff. I sent it on Wednesday from Monterey California. No, I wasn't golfing.....just testing those big noisy generators/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif No wonder I'm nuts.....my brain is vibrated loose from too much engine room time/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif
