Grand wagoneer fuel tank

I have an 87 Grand Wagoneer and the fuel tank is damaged (spare tire holder came loose). I have been searching every where for one. I cannot seem to find one, and I am wondering if there is a tank from maybe another model that will not require major modification to make work. Right now I am running off of an 8 gallon fuel cell mounted in the rear cargo area, works but is annoying. Thank you for any help.

teamgrandwagoneer.com is very expensive and they have them for the J20's but not for the GW and BJs wants $385 which is a fair price but I just don't have that much to spend. I was wondering if I would be able to retrofit one from like a grand Cherokee or something because even though I have it vented properly I am still getting gas fumes in the thing and I just want something I can use just like a factory tank. I work for advance auto and I can get brand new tanks from spectra but we cant get that one either.

Actually now that I look BJ's doesn't even list an 87 GW fuel tank. The $385 you are seeing is for a skid plate. I would contact them and see if they can't get one. A lot of times they can get parts that aren't listed on the website.

The GW Fuel tanks aren't available new yet.

Here is a breakdown of the vehicles you can use one off of:

1980-83 Cherokee
1980-83 Wagoneer
1984-91 Grand Wagoneer

You could also post on the IFSJA.org forum in the wanted section, you would probably get a quick response.

If i were you i would just get a tank that fits the shape of your current tank and get fuel tank straps to hold it up. Because the Wagoneer tank doesn't have anything internally (like fuel pump and filters) you are not limited too much in what works or doesnt work. If you can mount it, then use it.

@Jake that is what I was figuring, but I was hoping maybe someone has been through this and knew what else can be used. I was hoping to avoid the trial and error but, I have posted on junkyarddog.com, and a few others hoping to hear back with good news. This just sucks I didn't realize off road that the spare tire holder had fallen, put it in reverse and punched a hole in the tank.
