Just glad I am small enough to be able to sit under it without it being on jacks-thank you lift kit!
Very cool that yall do that together! And yeah I did my whole undercarriage in POR this summer while I was rebuilding the bottom half. It's just a messy PITA. I looked like a Dalmatian for a good portion of the summer lol

I think it was because the temperature started dropping... So today once it is warm I'll be out there with a blow dryer... I hope that's safe blow dryers couldn't set off gas right?
Spray some WD40 on the ends of the hoses. It will help slide it on. I did the mod a while back but got tired of my gas gauge being wrong so I just dropped the tank last week and swapped sending units. Hoses were sure tight because of the cool temps but wd40 helped

Now hopefully the front seal will not leak anymore. Still have the oil pan gasket to replace-my biggest leak.

AutobotWrangler took it through some 4 foot mud holes and overgrown trails with a fellow jeeper. Nothing like a mud covered topless jeep to ride into work on a monday morning!

It really does hold better and handles the elements better.
