What are you doing about the filler location? Did you bring the tank up all the way into the tub, or only partially into the tub?

Sorry just saw this.

I'll take a picture tomorrow.  I put it up on the rear bar.  No room for it anywhere else.

That fire extinguisher will be hard to get to if the fuel tank ever catches fire.

Yeah mine is similar but using the stock YJ filler neck with the TJ bezel because the TJ neck is too long. They test the cap during smog so I need to retain a factory type cap. Going to use a combo of CJ hoses to get it angled to the tank correctly.

I'm in Sacramento at the VA clinic so I'll get pictures later today.

Not my picture. And if the gas tank is on fire the car is gone. Usually it's a fuel line that ignites.  Plus my gas tank is under the jeep, so I should be safe
