Hey Bruce,

Honestly, the previous owner(s) have done quite a few things to this rig, apparently in an attempt to build a cheap hauler that could be used for off-roading as well. Aside from the body and gas tanks, I doubt much is stock.

Do not try to remove the bracket & straps from around the fuel tank unless you want to buy all new straps.

Thank you for the tips about the straps! The tank itself doesn't seem awfully hard to remove.
