Let's just say I could tell a funny story about dropping the fuel tank skid to clean out the rocks and other debris that had accumulated. There is a reason why the first three letters in the word assume are there, and why you should never “assume” the fuel tank is mounted separately from the skid plate… I highly recommend that you do not have a full tank of fuel when decide to quickly drop the skid plate to clean out the said debris; don’t ask how I know this!
I must say, I am thankful I had my 17yr old son outside at the time, or I might still be lying underneath the Jeep, with a stunned stupid look on my face…
I never imagined the only thing holding the tank in place was the skid, wrong!
