TJ Fuel Filler on a YJ Question..

I want to do the MOD from a TJ fuel Filler on my YJ..

My question is this:

If I have the entire Fuel filler and hoses from the TJ do I still need to place the stainless pipe in line?

I do not think the TJ hoses fit the YJ gas tank.

Do you know what was good about the good old days? I wasn't good, And I wasn't old!

I did the TJ fuel filler mod on my YJ some time back. I bought the SS metal pipes I needed from onlinemetals.

I do not know if we have a JF vendor that can supply you with the same pipe needed to extend the YJ hoses.

Here is how it gets done. I bought my pipe from onlinemetalsdotcom.

Dimensions are approximate you will need a TJ fuel filler bezel.

I DID NOT draw this diagram, and I can't credit who did so,.... because I am old and forgetful!

Two pictures of an installation; Not too sure if it is mine or not. Damn this getting old crap sucks





Fairly straight forward. Locating the TJ fuel filler bezel is critical. Too high and you are inside the tub above the wheel well..... Measure four times cut once.

you cannot use copper pipe instead of stainless?

just wondering if there is a more common metal that would work also?

I don't feel like working on anything at this time so i sold my yj.

I used copper fittings to splice the different size hoses together.

I guess you could, but does the gas react with the copper tubing?? Heck, it is only a filler pipe so contact is limited isn't it!?


CRAP! I overspent on this project......

Ha ha ha, I don't think it does. They use copper on all kinds of lines in different fields

Nice pics! I did the same to my rig many years ago and as you, I am getting old and forget the particulars, but reading this, it is exactly what I did when I did it for the very same reasons. Tried to find a way to go without the splice, but in the end, the splice was the only way. This is one of the best mods for a YJ, especially given the cost to complete.

And it is easier on the knees and back when fueling up!
