Well I'm going to pick up a 87 MJ soon and it doesn't have a bed on it. It's got the 2.5 and ax-15 in it. 4x4 of coarse. I'm wanting to build a tube bed for it and I'm looking for ideas. Pics are greatly appreciated!!

Apologies, I was asking the OP if he had pics of his MJ currently. Unless the tank is out and not running then some type of mount/brace would have to be made.
Stock, the straps mount to holes in the frame and to the underside of the bed.

I re-used an XJ tank from a part out. just made a pair of rail mounts for the tank and there she sits. Sits directly above the gas tank by about 5-6" (i've never even touched it with the D-shaft, even tried to a few times ) I believe i have more details in my build thread.

I walked by it before the actual "blessing" occurred.
