RIP noble Limited, questions for new Rig.

Somebody cut in front of my 88 Limited last week and the insurance company totalled it mainly due to its high mileage, 211K.
Not surprising.
Now I am looking for a new rig and I want to find something that will be compatible with all of the $$$$$$$$ worth of maintenance parts I had put on.
I know the 87-01 were generally the same and most of my parts will cross over but I did the internet mod to convert to increase the size of the gas tank and want to bring that over.
Before the mod, I could barely get 13 gallons in the tank and after the mod I always got 25gals.
There is something about having a 25gallon tank that I dont want to get rid of.

I know that Jeep converted the tank somewhere in the mid 90 where the fuel pump was on top and the tank was made out of plastic.
What year was that exactly?
Also, has somebody figured out how to increase the capacity of the newer tanks?
If not, does anybody know of the older tank can be retrofitted to the newer XJ's.
Also, I know later on the fuel pressure was increased so was wondering if this would preclude putting my older tank/pump combo in a newer Jeep.

I will buy any year XJ as long as I can tell that the previous owners took care of it and everything works but want to make sure that I dont have to redo all of the maintenenace that Ive already done once.
Thanks for everybody's time.

More comprehensive.

Perhaps my post was to verbose so I will consolidate it some.

Will an earlier model XJ tank fit into a later model XJ?
or can the same trick done to the earlier model XJ tank vent tube be done on the later model XJ tank to increase the tank capacity.

Where was the split for fuel tank between earlier metal tanks with the pump access in the front and the plastic tanks with the pump access on the top?

Oh, not too verbose at all. Perhaps it's the fact that no one cares?

I would imagine that the pump flanges will be different sizes, seeing as how the pumps are much different. Good luck on that one...

Thanks (most) of you guys.

I figured it was around those years.
I knew tealcherokee would come through as he helped me years ago when I first got the thing and helped me turn into a reliable backup truck.
Thanks mgertsch and Bowhunter46563, yuur input is greatly appreciated.

Keep us posted on how it goes. I'm interested in running a larger tank, but for some reason, everyone that carries the high capacity tanks only has them listed for the Renix rigs.

One of the newer 4wd rags has a listing for a company that makes larger tanks fro the Xj. I'll try to find it tomorrow and post it up for you. It would be either JP or 4wheel Drive and Sport Utility Magazine taht had the small blurp about it in the what's new section.

Same tank as me then.

mgertsch, If my information is correct your 93 should have the same tank as my 88.
Have you seen this link:
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/newre...te=1&p=2310488

Ive done it, works great, and I went from 13 gallon fillups to 25 gallon fill ups which is why I want to move the entire setup to my new rig.

If it doesnt retrofit Ill be finding a way to modify the newer style tank and Ill see if I remember to keep an update.

So far ive got a bead on a really nice 90 Limited and my trouble will be over.

I have a 20.2 gallon tank. I can get about 18.5 into it without topping off. I'm thinking about TIGging up a fuel cell that replaces the back seat. My target volume is 50-75 gallons.

I couldn't imagine having 50-75 gallons with me. I would keep forgetting how much it costs to fill up and drive around aimlessly all day. Then once I got to the pump I'd only put like 5 bucks in to get home.
