82 CJ7 Gas Tank Replacement

Would like opinion on steel vs. poly. It's basically a ranch jeep. Any recommended vendors?

Can you get a metal one? That year I thought they were plastic.

x2 on the 20-gallon poly tank. Check ebay, there's usually one or two on there regularly.

I found a better deal on my steel tank on Ebay... under $100. I already had the skid. Do you have a skid or do you need that too? You might also pick one up from one of the members who are parting out Jeeps.

After replacing 2 steel tanks within about 16 years, I went with a poly tank. The only downfall is that it fills slower and I think that's either because the fill tubes inside diameter is smaller or because there's some mould webbing from when it was made, obstructing the flow. I will remedy that during my rebuild.
