YJ Gas Filler Mod

I know a lot of guys have moved their YJ filler from behind the license plate to behind the wheel well like the TJ has. Does any one know if it is possible to move it to in front of the wheel well like the old Willy's has?

There'd be no advantage to moving it way up there vice doing it "TJ style" other than "older style" look. I've been searching around and can only find YJ-TJ filler mods. Anyone know if it's been done or even possible due to different tank locations?

The old willys had the tank under the seat so it made sense. With a wrangler, it's probably possible, but will be a job.

I know they were under the seat and it would be an...interesting...project, just wondering if anyone on here has bothered going that route

Never saw anything like that in the YJ section. It wouldn't be worth all of the work IMO.

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

Somewhere in the history of my '47 Willys, someone went the other way. They moved the tank from under the seat to the back (sort of like a Wrangler) and moved the filler as well. They put a heater under the seat.
