plastic fuel tank
just got back from the jeep jamboree in French lick IN, great time! while cleaning the jk, I discovered my fuel tank skid was now malformed and is pushing 2 inches into the fuel tank. obviously I need to upgrade the skid plat. question is my tank now holds 1 gallon less, is there any way to repair the tank or am I buying a new one?
You could drain the tank and try to press it back out from the inside, but personally that seems like more trouble than its worth. I punched in the dimple on an aftermarket skid plate which did the same to my tank. I just fixed the skid and have been using it. It's possible that the weight of a full tank of gas over time will restore the plastic tank to its original shape. Next time I have the tank down I'll check but not something I worry about.
mine looks like train wreck so does the cross member. I will move the tank before I put a heaver skid. If not for our Government the tank would not be were it is. the thing hangs down below frame by what 3". saving for a Gen right Jk tank that puts it in the back and then I will Flat belly this JK and gain the 3" under the jeep. Just need the $$$$
