Extra Gasoline

So - many of you know I travel a lot off road for work... many times in areas without services or gasoline or cell coverage.... I carry rotopax containers for gasoline (I can lift the 3 gallon containers no problem)... but am thinking about having a Long Ranger installed. Any one have this done? The other tanks either require moving the exhaust, or ? The Long Ranger has very good reviews... looking for first hand experience. Planning a trip to the tip of Baja this year, avoiding main roads a lot... then hopefully Central America next year. It would be great to have an extra 20 gallons or so under the body - great placement for the added weight.

That's pretty cool. Frankly given what Jeeps are (or are supposed to be) I am surprised there is not a "dual tank" option

I like how they call their protective armor a 'bash plate'. I like that term better than 'skid plate' which us yanks use! I think I'll adopt 'bash plate' as my new term.

I forget who I saw with this system. I'm pretty sure it was on Jeepforum. It was too pricey and way too much than what I was looking for. I'd be happier with a tank half that size. Honestly, if my 2 door tank had a full 20 gallons, I'd be good.

Where did you get it from. I know they are an Australian company.

I didn't say I got it. I said I was thinking about it. I'm just in the process of gathering information, and first hand experience can weigh heavily.

I do think we travel differently - different locations - different needs... I can't tell you how many times I've pulled into a town in Mexico, only to find they are *out of gasoline until manana* - and by manana (tilde missing) that can mean a week.

Overlanding is considerably different than wheeling. And third world countries can mean obstacles we don't encounter in the (what we like to think of as) the modern world.

I am considering getting the same setup. From what I can tell you only have to relocate the evap canister. The only person I have found online that did a write up is named Wherethehellisjames and he is not on this forum. Just google his name and long ranger.

Thanks. I think I saw that on Expedition Portal (Wherethehellisjames)...
I relocated the evap when I first bought my jeep Thought it was sitting in a rather stupid place...

Thanks again.... post info if you do this - OK? I believe there is a place in Oregon that does the instal per warranty...

It looks like an interesting option for those who need it.
I'm not sure I like the way the exhaust pipe runs right up against it, but maybe it's okay with whatever "heat shield" they put in it.

How much does it cost?

It doesn't fit on the 2012s, unless you monkey with the exhaust.
