Fuel Cell idea for YJ

Okay, i was taking out the trac bars my YJ yesterday and i started looking at the gas tank. It seems there is a large area of unused space from where the floor rises up and goes rearward(the riser that the rear bench sits on). i measured and it looks like there would be about a 32x34 area there between the frame rails that might be able to fit a fuel cell. i will eventually be going with a spring over on 2" BDS springs or something similar as well as a d60/14bolt combo. assuming i had no body lift, it looks like i might have room enough for a 6-10 inch deep fuel cell. not sure how much the 14 bolt would compress upon flexing, but being in the middle, the pumpkin shouldnt flex too much. only thing i can think of right now as far as problems would be the top mountings. far much clearance would i need on the top of the cell to clear the filler, lines, etc.? please help if you have input on this. thanks



- Jake
