Go_Wrangler Well its in! I didnt unscrew anything, left the tank just were ut was I just crawled under and worked with the little space I had and used my hands to figure out where the hole was then just used a socket wrench, took me many tries, the screw kept falling but i think it was worth it

I agree. When I installed my rear bumper a few years ago, I used the same method you describe. I didn't pull or disconnect anything and I mounted the rear bumper in under half an hour.

If you get the filler neck tubes off and lower the tank some you should be able to get to the others and then lower the tank all the way and slide it out.
X2 & Make it easier doing it once the tank is near empty! Much easier to manipulate it on the jack and in-between stages.

Go_Wrangler Ok thanks I'll try that

Coyote_94YJ The gas tank is secured by straps to that skid plate so if you undo the 3 bolts in the front and the 4 in the back the whole thing will fall to the ground. You'll need to undo the breather line on top of the tank and the filler neck to get the tank out. The best way to lower the tank is with a block of wood and a roll around floor jack and a buddy to try and balance it on the jack.

Gas Plate question !?!?!?

Might sound dumb but... I never messed with the gas plate before... I just got my rear bumper in the mail today, it looks like it screws in from behind the frame, in order for me to put the bolts in to hook it up its gonna be easier if i take out the gas plate, but I think the gas tank is still gonna be in the way anyway Anyway, I took out the bolts holding the gas plate on one side and when I got to the last one bolt the tank just seem to drop, the only thing that seem to be holding it was the other set of bolts towards the front on the car... If I take out those bolts will the tank drop, is there anything else holding it? (I don't want it to come down on me) it was hard enough pushing the rear side of the plate back up and putting the bolts back... I left the bumper installation for tomorrow, idk what Im getting into.... ANY TIPS I gotta get this stupid bumper in ...
