Poly fuel tanks!

Maybe just to let everyone know who is thinking of buying one of these there are a couple things to know before hand.


1. The steel tank has the flange around the tank that bolts to the Jeep to support the front end of the tank and another mounting area at the rear of the tank.
The Poly tanks do NOT have a flange so there is no place to bolt it to the Jeep. I am going to have to fabricate a couple of support brackets to support each end of the tank.


2. The fuel inlet is a 2" OD inlet so you will have to get a 1" nipple and screw it inside of the plastic inlet and attach your fuel filler hose to that which is no big deal.


The bracket thing is kind of a pain in the ass though.


I haven't measured it but putting the poly tank up in there sure seems like it is a little smaller than the steel tank....maybe not though.

Actually, after looking at the new ones the installation kit comes with it so you won't have any problems other than the filler hose issue.


They come with brackets when ya buy it new.


I bought one from a member and it didn't come with brackets.
