I have a UJOR Aluminum gas tank that I just pulled out of a 2014 V10 (replacing with a 55 gallon tank out back). Comes with all the mounting brackets. This is the lock ring style tank, 2009+



54" long, 14" wide, 11.5" tall

$1200 local pick up preferred.

^^^^ I still have the tank. It's taking up valuable space in the shop.

I took this to mean that you liked the brackets on the brake lines, now I see you are talking about the "ends".
I will remove the clunky brackets from the middle as you mentioned today.
Got any pics of the brake lines?
Sway bar/brackets install pics?

Not sure if this one from Jsweezy is helping. My brake line comes out of the hole behind the shock, a'la e-series..

Pictured above was the original way we did the brake lines (Jsweezy's was the first conversion documented...converting my van from a Quadvan to my kit, I didn't have to do much of this since it was already done to start). After a bit of experience, we started routing the lines to where the eseries lines come out at the spring bucket. The Fseries lines come with the bracket you can see at the end. I think I remember swapping the left for the right so they line up better with the van brake line. Anyway... good that you brought this up. It's a minor detail that gets lost in the grand scheme.

Yep. And just to be clear that van had them put back to the rear like in the last photo before I sold it. Much cleaner.

I also found you can connect the brake line and RSC cables with zip ties and using a spring zip tie them to the top of the control arms so they are always out of the way of the tire.

I'll get a picture and post it up on how I have it on my van now.

Edit - and yes you have to swap the sides of the stock brake lines when using those brackets otherwise they face the wrong way when installed.

Has anyone here setup a quick release system for the sway bar? I'm wondering if there is a truck kit that might work before I try setting something up?

Yup.....this is the setup that Boulder offroad did for me. Larger sway bar mounted on a custom made bracket, at first there were end links, but after breaking a weld and removing the sway bar down in Baja, I had them add in disconnects when I returned. They swing up and connect to the upper pins
