It allows you access to the top of the fuel tank (pump, electrical, hoses, vents, etc) without dropping the entire fuel tank assembly!
Simply remove the cover plate and you have full access to the top of the fuel pump module (fuel lines and electrical connections!).
The outside frame is made of heavy duty 3/16" laser cut and formed steel.
It drops into the rear cargo area floor (after cutting a hole), which makes it level with the top of the ribs in the rear floor section.
Then a 1/8" thick aluminum cover plate screws down with stainless steel button head allen bolts, as pictured.
Works with factory or after market fuel tanks.
Includes necessary mounting hardware.
The base plate (frame) is secured in place with any bonding type silicone adhesive and pop rivets.
Perfect for LS and other V8 conversions too!
Installation is fairly simple: just mark where to cut, drill a 3/8" hole in each corner and cut the floor using a jig saw with metal cutting blade.

Got this on my LJ when I did the higher capacity tank. Dropping the tank is such a hassle, so when this came out I knew I had to have it. Never going to need to drop my tank again. No fumes either!
What an awesome product! My fuel pump died in the work parking lot and this enabled me to just cut the floor and replace the fuel pump within an hour instead of having to have the jeep towed home etc. When the access panel showed up I just cut out the hole to the proper size and installed it. The cheap harbor freight pop rivet tool worked just fine for this project, but if you plan on using the tool for other things I might recommend something a little nicer.
This is super handy, functional and a clean look. Easy install and made me not have to drop the tank to change my fuel pump. Hidden bonus, made it super easy to put diff fluid in.
