Re: What replacement tank for my 87 YJ?
Replace it with the newer, 20 gallon plastic tank ( say its from a 93 when ordering). If your tank was already replaced with the newer plastic it will bolt right up(you 87 stock, tank would be the smaller, 15 gallon steel tank). If it hasnt been modified to fit the newer tank, it is a very easy modification, just adding another strap to the skid plate mount. Either of the tanks will fit, but you will need the propper cover/sending unit for whichever tank you use. Your 87 fuel pump, if it is an in tank pump, will fit onto the newer sending unit.
Swapping to the newer 20 gallon plastic tank is a good swap for anyone with an older YJ, and a little extra time, and an affordable junk yard in their area.
Wow, you can get a nice tan on your arms, from welding with no shirt on.
