JEEP WRANGLER YJ WHEELBASE STRETCH KIT
The Motobilt Jeep Wrangler Wheelbase Stretch Kit is designed to use Jeep XJ rear leaf springs on the rear of your Jeep YJ (1987-1995). Installing this kit moves the rear axle back about 6 inches. The kit incorporates a custom rear bumper and shackle hangers in one part. The shackle hangers are positioned high on the bumper to keep the overall Jeep ride height lower for better center of gravity. The ends of the bumper are tapered in to allow better clearance for the shackles with the rear axle at full droop. The kit comes with a custom set of leaf spring shackles designed to clear the bumper in the range of movement. The rear bumper also features 3/4" thick d-ring recovery mounts that pass through the bumper and welded on both sides. The bumper welds to the back of the factory cross member and has two side frame plates to cover the sides.
This kit does include new spring shackles as noted. The shackles are CNC laser cut from 1/4" high strength steel plate. The shackles measure 4 inches center to center and do have a 3rd cross bolt for additional support.
- The bumper is 3/16" laser cut steel plate
- 3/4" thick d-ring mounts
- incorporated shackle mounts
- moves the axle back 6 inches
- measures 42.5" wide
- Includes new shackles and shackle spacer
Motobilt offers a solution for relocating the fuel tank in your vehicle. The Motobilt MB5005-3AN was designed to fit in the back bed of your Jeep, truck, or buggy. It is 30"x12"x9" and can fit behind your seat if you choose too. The tank has a capacity of roughly 15 US gallons.
The Motobilt fuel tank is CNC cut from 1/8" 5052 aluminum and formed on a press brake, is TIG welded for ultimate strength and includes a large D-ring style cap. This can be converted to remote fill by purchasing a different filler neck system.
The Motobilt MB3000 fuel cell mount will fit this tank perfectly. The kit consists of three parts: the main under tank plate and two clamp bodies. The under tank plate is CNC Laser Cut from 1/8" high strength steel plate. You can weld your own mounting brackets to the bottom if needed or utilize the 8 bolt holes already in the mount. The 2 clamp down bodies capture the top and all four sides of the tank and bolt securely to the mounting base. These parts are CNC Laser Cut but from 18 gauge steel. The parts are formed on a hydraulic press break. This mount will ensure your fuel cell is mounted securely.
The Motobilt tank features 2 #8 -AN fittings and 1 brass roll over valve on top of the tank which are tig welded into place. The fittings are for: Vent line with an included roll over valve pre-installed inside the tank.
Fuel pick up with hose and mount inside the tank. A return line fitting.
This fuel cell is used for applications where you are extending the wheel base and the rear axle would contact the factory fuel tank. It would also be used in situations where more ground clearance is needed.
This Fuel Cell DOES NOT mount in between the frame rails. It will only mount inside the bed of the Jeep.
The Motobilt Fuel Cell Mount for the MB5005-3AN was designed utilizing the latest 3D CAD design software to ensure a proper fit. The kit consists of three parts including the main under tank plate and two clamp bodies.
The main under tank plate is a one piece design unlike some of the others on the market. This design cost a little more to manufacture due to the large plate. It eliminates the sharp edges coming in contact with the bottom side of the fuel cell. This can be important in some situations where you may have body and/or chassis flex. The under tank plate is CNC Laser Cut from .125" high strength steel plate. You can weld your own mounting brackets to the bottom if needed or utilize the 8 bolt holes already in the part.
The 2 clamp down bodies capture the top and all four sides of the tank and bolt securely to the mounting base. These parts are CNC Laser Cut but from 16 gauge steel. The parts are formed on a hydraulic press break. The dimple died holes are optional. Read below.
The Fuel cell mount is shipped bare metal. You will need to paint or powder coat the part. The bolts required are not shipped due to the different mounting options. The fuel cell (RCI 2161a) is not included with the mount. Images shown with the fuel cell are only to show how the mount installs.
