Fuel filler hose

After 2 hours of beating the gas tank up to get it pulled out, I have since found out that the fuel filler hose I bought it just going to get kinked up once the tank gets put back into place. I have found some fuel filler hose made by Gates thats supposed to be able to bend almost 180 degrees without any problems. Anyone heard of this line? Or have any other ideas?

Why don't you just get a filler hose specifically for a jeep? It's not something that you want to klooge...

Would have been a good idea to tell you all the info. I have done some mods on the rear to reinforce the side and I have some tubing going by inside the fuel filler area. A stock jeep hose won't work, it's like 2 90 degree turns before you reach the tank from the filler area.

Well, that shoots that down The Gates tubing sounds like it's supposed to do what you want. Try checking on the street rod sites, they're always having to do weird shit like that. Anyway good luck with it.

Tubing going by inside the fuel filler area? Curiosity is going to get to most of us here. What did you do? Why? Pictures!!!
