First mod on both of my Jeeps has been a plastic tank. Both of the metal ones showed signs of rust. At least with plastic you know there is no rust fouling you fuel supply.

Yup platic, or polyethelyne, gas taks are the way to go. I'm on my third and final tank thanks to them. I've had it for 3 years now and everything is still good. www.4wd.com sells them.
