Re: CJ 20 gal Poly tank and exhaust??
I'm currently running duals around my stock steel tank. But the exhaust runs between the spring shackles and the fuel tank. The poly tank seems to fill this WHOLE space, from shackle to shackle. So I was wondering where the stock exhaust comes out.I haven't taken any REAL measurements. I'm still working a few repairs, and just getting ahead of myself a little bit. Thought I'd size it up......
The CJ5 and the CJ7 are basically the same animal. I think it's 8 1/2 difference? But it's all in the rear seat area. I've sectioned a CJ5 frame to a CJ7 years ago, so I'm assuming that the back half hasn't changed. And the poly tank will fit.
I'm not really inventing something just taking advantage of the factory options.
I'm not sure about the "legroom" comment. I don't know what you are referring to. It won't change with my tank swap..... I think maybe you are thinking it's under the seat? (older CJ5).
I'm not a fan of the fenderwell headers and side exhaust. Dumping out in front of the rear tires will be my last resort. And then I'll have to swap my mufflers for something a LOT quieter.
