1976-1986 CJ Rear Body Mount Gas Tank Crossmember


This CJ body mount gas tank crossmember is 3/16″ thick, and it requires cutting out of the factory crossmember and welding the new one in.



A full gas tank can weigh 160-200 lbs, and the fuel is constantly moving as you drive.  Over time, this moving weight fatigues the vehicle’s crossmember. If your gas tank crossmember is at all rusty or cracked, this weight could cause a real problem. Take a look for rust and/or cracks. If you notice damage, it’s time to cut out the old crossmember and weld in the new one.

This crossmember fits 1976-1986 CJ5s, CJ7s, and CJ8s. It’s made of 3/16″ steel right here in the United States. You can trust that our certified welders pay attention to quality and correct fitment. Contact us if you’d like to know more about this part.

NOTE : If your factory CJ Frame is C channel and not a Boxed in frame you will be required to box in the area where the Rear Body Mount Gas Tank Crossmember mounts.
