fuel tank mount

On the YJ, does the fuel tank mount to the frame or to the underside of the body?

body lift?

So, if a person does a body lift and the fuel inlet is attached to the tank and the body, how does the extra lift distance get accounted for?

No worries with a 1" lift, there's plenty of hose.

thanks

Thanks for the input. I did a little research and saw how it was mounted. Now will just have to wait to see what I actually find when I drop it. It spent its life in Minnerustota, or should I say Maxirustota. But the skid plate looks whole yet and I got a good set of straps with the salvage vehicle. Wish the skid plate has been there too...

Has anyone cut the bed of the body for access to the top of the tank without dropping the tank?

Are you taking the tank out for a reason? You don't need to for the lift.

frame off

Actually doing a full frame replacement. Was needing to find out how things come apart to figure the best way to approach. Plan to put it back together with a 1" body lift and 2.5" suspension lift.

Will probably drop the tank and prep the skid plate prior to lifting the body.

Was wondering about the access as I have an Avalanche and it is common to cut an access panel under the rear seat to access the tank/fuel pump. But that is under the seat and away from any normal use.
