Both the flapper issue and tire size are warned about early in the tread. 33's for tires.

Starting my install but realized my kit is missing the brass plug for the fuel balancer !!?!!??
Charcoal canister moved forward. Getting ready for the L bracket install when I noticed it.
Any idea on size of the brass threaded barb?

Looking forward to reading what you think about the tank after a few weeks of usage.

Btw... put the front fuel tank bracket all the way back against the rib, don't do what I did above it's too far forward...


This is correct


Just leak testing and skid install left to do
