Extended Range Gas Tank for Wranglers

Attention:

Genright is considering building an even larger tank for Wranglers. They are registered and taking opionions over on Rubicon Owners Forum. If you are interested or would like to chime in, please do so.

Their tanks are the only thing I don't like about Gen Right. Seriously why would I want to spend 800 or more to get a tank just because it holds an extra 5 gallons.

This company below makes a 26 gallon replacement for the TJ already.

I love it when someone post OWNED. It actaully makes me type so the less informed can be educated.

I have contacted Aerotanks and their comments were the following for fitment on a 2006 unlimited:

"If your going to try to fit tank you should try the 1997W but your check engine light will come on and you will fail the smog test if your state has one. "


It is also funny that the only thing I like about genright is their tanks. They are trying to fill a nitch market and doing it quite well. As for paying $800 for gas tank that gives you 5 extra gallons...I look at like $500 for the extra gas and $300 for the skid. Yes, that is still alot of money, but my rear tire carrier does not have provisions for a fuel can. I guess I could spend another $500-$1000 for one that does, but that seem counter productive. Plus, I'd rather have 5 extra gallons under the rig than hanging off the side.

Of course if money was not an issue, I'd buy the genright and the new tire carrier.

Now that brings us back to the original concept. They are trying to get feedback on building a bigger tank. There is a reason I don't have a genright yet. The 5 extra was not enough even with the skid to pony up the money. An extra 10 gallons would. So if this is something that might be of use to someone please post up so they have an idea of this new products viability.

My guess is the reason you are getting such abrupt responses is that you have into one forum, and basically said that there is a conversation going on in another forum that we should see... It's like walking into a McDonalds and handing out coupons for Wendys and Burger King. If they wanted our opinion, they could come ask for it. I am assuming that you either work for GenRight, or are afiliated in some way, or you are fishing for more traffic on the Rubicon Owners Forum. Just my first impression. And for the record, I think that the Genright tanks are all overpriced personally, their stretch tank is more than BTF or Koz, and you still get more room with the other 2. Have a great weekend!

Not affiliated in any way. Just want them to make a bigger tank so I am trying to inform everyone. Right now they are monitoring the ROF board so YES I am trying to drum up traffic for that thread.

You are right they are overpriced for what you get. That is why I have not purchased one yet. BUT, if they offer more gallons then it would be more bang for the buck.

Sorry if I stepped on any toes over here. Just trying to keep eveyone up on what is going on around the forum boards.

sorry I have to agree with jeeperman, you come across as associated with Gen Right. but anyway thats becides the point, my point and thoughts on this thread lean toward the direction of fabing up a gas carrier for your rear tire carrier, seeing how it was ment for more weight anyway. if you decided to go with that other tank that turned your check engine light on, why wouldn't you just go have it switched off? the local auto parts store should do it for free, or if your like some of us who like to mess around with their rig, go buy a code reader and turn it off yourself. Thanks for supporting the WF.

I think the only fast food company that would give out coupons in Mickey D's would be "White Castle".......

Not that I can vouch for him or anything (don't know him personally) but I can say that Beowulf is not affilliated with Gen-Right or ROF. That being said, posting a link to another forum is in very poor taste and personally I'd prefer the thread deleted. I have to disagree with both Jack and Beowulf as I like Gen-Right's products including their tanks.

Wow, I’ll make sure I never share data from another forum. Please delete this thread. I'll make sure not have the poor taste of ever sharing information on this board again.

Many of the other boards that I have posted this on were thankful for the posting and chimed in on ROF. Each board has its own etiquette. Once again I apologize for stepping on toes. Seems like it would be easier to ignore a thread that is so distasteful to so many.

Honestly I don't mind that you posted a link to another forum. No one forum contains all the information that exists on this small little inter web we all roam.

Also don't get me wrong I do like Gen Right's products and I like their way of doing business. I've gotten quite familiar with them over the past couple of months and the more I hear the more I like. They have a great thing going and I hope they continue to generate the right products for the market. I just personally don't like those tanks because of the price for what you get. I'm more interested in clearing the under belly of the tank and mounting it either in the bed or a fuel cell in the bed. Now when Tony starts making those I'm all over it.

We are not going to delete the thread, that's now how we work here, unless you were actually working for Genright (which I now know you aren't, just seemed that way before). Genright seems to build quality stuff, I just have found other companies that build what appear (can be deceving) to be comparable product for less. I have heard nothing but good about them from guys that have purchased and used their product.

You have made someone feel badly, for trying to share a little information, from another forum. I seem to remember having to join other forums, just to vote for someone trying to win a Diablo chassis. I also remember voting for our right to access public lands, (which also required registration, on a different site). I did not see this as advertising, or some one wanting us to join another forum. I saw this as some one actually trying to enlighten anyone interested in a larger fuel tank. Sometimes it is difficult to appreciate a helping hand, when it isn't something one is interested in.
