Think I figured out a solution to my fuel pump...

got my tank


And I think I am gonna modify it to accept a 98 Explorer 5.0L sender.....

Sender has a flat mount






And it will sit 1/8" from the bottom of the cell.

I'm sure it wont matter in a buggy, but I just took my jeep for a ride after putting the pump in the tank, with the tank in the cab. Suck. Noisy as hell.

single ended rams aint the best setup, but mine has been abused for many years, and always works. i can turn locked 42's with my pinky. the only difference is mine is mounted above and behind the axle, to hopefully protect it a little better. it has a rear facing steering arm on the passenger side.
aluminum tie rod in front running side to side. all heims, no tie rodes.

your build is looking great!

3003-H14 Aluminum Sheet - (ASTM B209, QQ-A-250/2) Excellent weldability, formability, with good corrosion resistance make 3003 Aluminum Sheet a popular and economical choice. 3003 Aluminum Sheet has a smooth, shiny finish and is popular for many cosmetic and industrial applications, including: decorative trim, fuel tanks, food & chemical handling, trailer siding & roofing, etc.
Non-magnetic, Brinell = 40, Tensile = 22,000, Yield = 21,000 (+/-)

5052-H32 Aluminum Sheet - (ASTM B209, QQ-A-250/8) Superior corrosion resistance, good weldability, with excellent formability, makes 5052 Aluminum Sheet a common choice for chemical, marine or saltwater applications. 5052 Aluminum Sheet applications include: tanks, marine hardware, boat hulls, etc.
Non-magnetic, Brinell = 60, Tensile = 33,000, Yield = 28,000 (+/-)

6061-T651 Aluminum Sheet - (ASTM B209, QQ-A-250/11) Offers a combination of increased strength, corrosion resistance, and machinability making it the most widely used aluminum grade. 6061 Aluminum Sheet is heat treatable, resists cracking due to stress, is easy to weld and machine, but limited on formability. 6061 Aluminum Sheet is ideal for structural framing, base plates, gussetts, motorcycle & automotive parts, etc.
Non-magnetic, Brinell = 95, Tensile = 45,000, Yield = 40,000 (+/-)

3003 will bend, 5052 will bend better and is a little stronger than 3003, 6061 isn't going to bend very well, more straight panel stuff.

Check here for alum drops, I believe HDPE is cutting board material for skids as well.

And I think this might be where I place the rear axle in the chassis, I lifted the chassis to where I want it to sit at ride height. I have just about 22" from the ground to the bottom of the chassis. With the rear axle there I should be real close to 36" long upper links.
