after replacing about four fuel filters and my fuel pump going out, i dropped my tank. the fluid in the tank looked more like river water than gas. i was going to replace it with a new tank from bj's but would like to put a tank in the rear. any clue where to find one?
You could have one custom made, but usually my experience it is more expensive. The other are done on small runs which usually saves some money. Plus if I am not mistaken they have to be pressure tested. But believe me when I say I have seen just about everything out there, even a beer keg or two.
Haha, yeah, or ironically an oil drum. It would be cheaper if you could the measuring, designing and maybe even some of the prep work yourself, but if you're looking to just get it done buying one would be better. Personally, I'd get up under there, take all the measurements, come up with my own design, buy and cut all the aluminum then take it to be welded. But that's tedious and if something gets messed up you'll be the one to blame.
i was just wondering what kind of vehicle you got a tank out of mine has about 50 little holes in it and
have been hunting for a donor so any help will be nice
im trying to keep my build as low cost as possible
I have a poly tank from my '73 J4000 someplace (aftermarket) that fit up to '76 Jtruck (maybe later if your tank fills in the top middle) Later J truck ones fill in through the front corner of the tank.
As for a tank to fit behind the back bumper, I test fit an '84 to '86 XJ tank (because they have no fuel pump in the tank) and it looked good. Nicely tucked away, but only @20 gallons.
