Re: fuel tank skid
It's hard to get the bolts out but the rest of it's easy. It has to come down as a unit and you will be glad it does.
Put a jack under it, remove the bolts that hold the assy to the unibody. Let it down, disconnect the hoses (quick connects, have tools for them), pull it out and it's a walk in the park to put your tank in the new skid. I've done this 2x now and have to do it to a third WJ soon. I hate playing with gas so the tank is as close to empty as possible. Get a skid from an 04 so it's the heavy duty one. You will need a friend to help but it's worth it.
