Fuel Tank Options...

So in my 70 CJ5 I have a 10 gallon polyurethane tank under the drivers seat. Becuase of some things like I am sitting on a bomb and I want to rework my seat brackets for more headroom and legroom I want to get rid of it.

As far as I can tell these are my options:

1) Aluminum OEM-style tank mounted under rear
2) Polyurethane OEM-Style tank mounted under the rear
3) Fuel Cell style tank mounted under rear
4) Fuel Cell style tank mounted in back of "bed"

From what I can tell from poking around the Fuel Cell style mounted in the back of the bed would be the easiest. I am however not clear on how safe/legal that is and such.

Any ideas/comments/burns from the peanut gallery? [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Thanks

This is the best gas tank I've ever seen!

Re: Fuel Tank Options...

You've got braces where the tank would go in the back. Look at a 72 to 75? to see how they're mounted.

Re: Fuel Tank Options...

It's a shame to waste a good beer keg. [img]images/graemlins/givemebeer.gif[/img]

My suggestion would be get a "GAS TANK" and keep the keg full of beer.
