I have a 94 Runner with 2inch body lift. I NEED to get my gas tank higher, but there is a bracket for a dog bone in the way. I real don't want to move my tank to the rear. What are my options. I Know someone out there has raised that <IMG SRC="smilies/rainbow.gif" border="0"> tank up. It's so low right now. HELP

Here's a 2nd gen lift writeup:

Gas tank lift

Or go to rear leaf spring and raise it in place <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

Thats <IMG SRC="smilies/rainbow.gif" border="0">. I don't want to put it there and I don't want leaf springs. Any other options that are cheap. BFH till it fits??

One of the reasions I switched from a 4Runner to a truck is that very same tank issue. On my truck it was easy to move the tank above the drive shaft and build a flat bed around it...

This most not be the same board I thought it was. My mistake, I thought this was the same board that slams everything anyone says,laughs at guys with IFS and claim to be hard core rock crawlers who have been there done that mod. I must have gone to the outdoor wire board instead. Sorry to hurt your feelings <IMG SRC="smilies/crybaby2.gif" border="0"> . I'll try to find someone who knows thanks. <IMG SRC="smilies/jester.gif" border="0">

It's sounds to me like you have answered your own question here and you've got 3 options:

-redesign the suspension to get the dog bone or arm out of your way (including switching to leafs)
-move the tank to the rear
-live with it

.......am I close?? <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

<IMG SRC="smilies/crybaby2.gif" border="0"> okay I am over it now <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0"> for a newbie..scratch that..individual asking for advice, you sure know how to keep people from responding. If what we have to offer does not suit your needs then say "thanks anyway" or "well you guys tried", but with your attitude I sure as hell will see your next post and say <IMG SRC="smilies/flipoff.gif" border="0"> Why bother, you would not take our advice anyway. Seek elsewhere if you want but know this, most of the "best" ideas come from here. So that said <IMG SRC="smilies/flipoff.gif" border="0"> Newbie

He was being a smartass! "One more" meaning one more dumb idea he does not want to listen to.

I am up this weekend for the Truckin nationals. Taking my boys for the bikini contest <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> too bad you guys are going to the Hammer J/K. Have fun. I will be trying to come up for the Jambo if I can get the Friday off. Lots of money too. But I will try my hardest to make it up some time before you guys get tired of asking. Thanks for the invite.
