*OEM gas tank skid removal required. For easiest install, remove skid when tank is near empty. See instructions for simple ideas on removing OEM gas tank skid.
* From what we have found the crossover pipe may need to be modified slightly by heating the crossover pipe with a small torch (map gas or propane ) and pinch the pipe some with a c clamp to clear the oil pan skid (don't worry it crushes down from the factory next to where you would need to pinch) A majority of JL/JT will not have the contact, but due to factory variance from Jeep's factory, there is a small amount of affected vehicles.
*Due to mid model year changes from Jeep, August 2018 and earlier build date JL's have a different fuel tank then September 2018-current. If you have an early model 2018, please call or email us so we can make sure to get the correct fuel skid for your application on the order before it ships.
