Somebody cut in front of my 88 Limited last week and the insurance company totalled it mainly due to its high mileage, 211K.
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.

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.
IrishChef: Confucious say, Its better to be thought as a total moron and keep your useless trap shut than to open it and remove all doubt.
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.

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.
