    DOes anyone see a problem if I don't have a screen for the fuel pickup inside the gas tank?

    I was thinking of a good inline filter outside the fuel tank.

    Is the pick up filter 4" long or so ?
    You may need to extend the length of the pick up tube then to be lower in the tank.
    Because you will run out of gas much sooner because of the loss of length.
    Loss of length...hmm....don't anybody go there.

    Does the tank tilt towards the front or the back? Mine is not installed yet.

    Tank should be level with the frame. If your Jeep runs downhill, it will be downhill.

    That is how I thought the tank should be set. I will pay more attention to the pickup location inside the tank.
