Fuel skid plate question

Putting back my fuel tank and coffin skid plate on my 82 wagoneer and need help. When I removed the tank it had a heavy duty home made cradle. I picked up a coffin for it and did some work and am ready to install. However since I didnt remove it, Im having a little trouble installing it. Can someone draw a crude diagram or point me in the direction of one and where all the bolts should go? I have the 2 book shop manual but havent seen it. Ive scoured this forum and have read a few different things but just get confused. I did learn the frame should have welded nuts, so that helps a bit. But on the driveshaft side are there any bolts...there has to be? Is there a long bolt somewhere on the frame side or is that for a different jeep. Thought I read about a long bolt? Thanks in advance!

I guess what I really need to know is of there is a bolt that goes throught either of the tank straps or on the inboard side that attaches to the body or any other point for support.

On my '90 -- and I think they may be the same on the '82 -- there is only one inboard bolt. It hangs down from the body brace, and goes through one of the two holes at the flange where the rear tank strap attaches inboard.

You lift up the tank/skid, and the threaded bolt goes through the skid/strap hole, and you cinch it up with a nut and washer. the inboard rear of the tank/skid "hangs" from this bolt.
