I took the body off of my LV frame this weekend. Broke ever bolt except for three. Had to pull the gas tank skid plate and tank. Those captive nuts on the front side of the skid plate were a real PITA.

There's this strap, bent around the cross member right in front of the tank. Anyone else have one of these? What's it for?

I'd say PO, look at the condition of the other metal, this looks like it never had any paint on it.

Yeah, this looks like it has the same amount of corosion on it as everything else. I'd say PO too but it's in a bitch of a place to put anything.

It's not attached to the sway bar, the bolt goes in between the sway bar and cross member.

It's a '66 FJ4523823

The fastener is 9/16 (.5625") or 14mm (.562498").

One guess is it might be a factory fixture that they left on maybe?

I guess it's just MudMonster and I who had the ultra-rare, extra useless bracket option. Sounds like a good selling point for an ebay ad.
