Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

The floor in my CJ2A has been repaired so might be a little different in height than original, but it measures right at 6 1/2" tall in the front. I bought the Beachwood gas tank web strap kit and was pleased with the great quality and the price wasn't bad. The straps were about 3/16" thick I think.

The clip is welded onto the top of the tunnel and sits 1 1/4" tall. It is also 15 3/4" on center from the rear vertical portion of the tub at the rear of the gas tank. I can send a photo or two if you want some. I am not sure if the dealers have them for sale. Does anyone know if Juan makes them for use in his new bodies?

: I have another question for the gas tank installation.
: How high off the floor is the tank when installed?
: How thick are the spacer pads under the tank?
: How high off the floor is the inboard forward clip for the long strap? Is it welded to the floor (tunnel) or is it bolted down? Are these available for sale for the dealers?
: Thanks,
: Jim
