plastic gas tank?

who sells plastic 20 gallon gas tanks for cj7's? are they really better than metal, in the durability department? I just remembered how bad mine was leaking when I stopped driving the jeep to do the frame work...thought I would replace it while I had it out....thanks again, Ben

Re: plastic gas tank?

I saw some in 4wd.com catalog. I don't know if they fit the CJ7 but check with them.

Plastic tanks are better than steel since they won't rust and can handle twisting and minor bumps. They are however much weaker so a skid plate is necessary.

I used a factory YJ tank (20 gal, poly tank). It fits in the CJ skid plate too. (I bought a 4X doctor gas skid for it also)

I've got the factory plastic 20 gal in my CJ-7. Anything that would punch through this one will go through steel! Just in case, I got a Four X Doctor skid plate for it anyways. I would never trade it for steel!
