Awsome, side view to gauge distance between the diff and the tank skid plate.

Jeremy, I'm trying to get 4" out of your 3+ stretch and am trying to avoid using a fuel cell in the back to conserve space. It's getting 4 linked, only from the diff to the frame vs using the bridge you guys make.

Dave Watts says I have 3.5" to work with, since I have no rear cross member, i think I can push it back another inch or so and modify my PSC bumper as the rear cross memebr / mounting point. Headed to the shop now for fun with measuring tape!

I wouldn't let a tank be the limiting factor in your build. More wheelbase will make your rig wheel so much better that it's worth sacrificing space for a fuel cell in the tub.

What size tire are you planning to run?

Just my 2cents

A fuel cell may be perfect for Terrorchicken...

After wheeling with Jody a few times I have come to realize that he is ultra-conservative when it comes to fuel. He even turns his Jeep off mid-climb just to save some.

I run 37's, have no plans to go any bigger. Thats all a 2 door really needs and I don't have any manhood issues requiring 44's to compensate hahahaha. The target wheel base is 100" and I need to get right at 4 in the rear to get there, so if I can run the tank in the rear like this Genright set up, I'll be happy. The other factor in all this is that I drive the damn thing everyday, so crawling up into the tub every time I need to fill up just isn't appealing.

Now I still have the cell you have on the list, think I could mount it in the rear by the tail gate and fueling wouldn't be a big deal.

Trying to catch up as I just finished 16 hours of flying and waiting on the last 8 hour flight leg to go home!

It is very easy to install and very cheap, but it does not work for every one. We have not yet found an angel for a kit, like what would some one like to see for a kit.
