Getting ready to install the gen-right outboard shock/coil over kit this weekend. Did you drop the gas tank? Just didn't know if having arc and spark that close is a concern. I have an unlimited is that matters. I will also be installing a currie rear anti-rock at the same time.

Thanks

Arc and spark won't be the concern-no issues there. Hell, I have a torch burn in my plastic tank! What IS an issue though is clearance-yes, pull the tank and have some room to work properly. Not worth it trying to do it with the tank and fight everything along the way. Pull the tank, get the welds in good then be done with it. Good time to clear all the gravel, dirt, debris from the tank anyway. Just be sure to plug the fuel lines good and get them out of the way, then weld away!

Best of Luck,

Mike

Bet you were missing a few hand hairs after that!! haha. I wish I had access to a plasma cutter, it would make things so much easier. :)

I've been considering doing the same thing. Post some pics of the process and good luck.

For those of you who have them, would you do it again? I guess are you happy with the whole setup or would you do something different?

I was behind the camera! That's my buddy doin the cutting, I just made the guide marks for him.



Would I do it again.......

In a heart beat! The rubi doesn't roll near as much now and feels more stable both on and off roads.

For example, prior to the out board, when I drove into my drive way, the jeep would side to side 2-3 times. After the out boarding, it simply wiggles once, then levels back out.
Honesty one of my favorite mods to date.
