Tank tuck almost done. Here's what I have so far tho.

Already tested the filler neck and it fills just fine. If ya don't like it drill through the unibody rails. I didn't have a hole saw big enough for it nor anymore money to get one.

Have to cut the box template out of the steel I got and then seal that up, cut the carpet and it'll be good to go.

Cut 5.5" out of the skid itself and then 4 5/8" out of the filler neck.

This pic shows where I was unable to cut with the metal sheers so I just cut it with my Dremel tool took a while but didn't want to have sparks by the fuel tank lol

filler neck is slightly more bent than I would like but it fills just fine no splash back or overflow issues.

Piece of the filler neck I cut off.

 

 

The fuel line box will eventually be covered with this so not worried about damaging it

Gonna try to get all the wiring done this weekend since has calmed down a bit.

 

Also looking for new shocks and possibly getting new springs as well as isolators.

Looking at the freedom offroad kit since it's on 300 bucks shipped with shocks and springs.

Got my spod switches mounted up. Not my favorite but I can reach all the buttons comfortably.

 

Also picked up the wood and hardware for my rear cargo area.

Worked on installing the spod today. Found out my cables are about 4ft too short so I got in contact with them to see about an exchange/purchase longer ones.

Anyways here the bracket I made up its kinda flex so I'd like to add some beefier bolts to it eventually.

Also saw someone with a wk do this neat little mod so figured I'd give it a shot. Need to find a mic bracket and then should be good to go.
