Custom Transmission Tunnel

One mechanical issue since the Arizona hibernation days and the Diablo DED was the fuel tank. The custom cross-floor tank had rusted so bad that a fuel filter was fouled every 5 miles, resulting in plenty of problems on and off the trail. With the old tank being replaced with a stock Jeep unit in “Gas Tank Upgrade” (Mar. ’10), I also hacked out the floor for more tranny clearance to raise the crossmember. This helped ground clearance tremendously, as I had whacked the tranny pan and nearly killed it. I now have a tranny tunnel, which means maybe an Advance Adapters Saturn overdrive in the future?
