Barstow industrial supply. Bunch of nice people and for having a monopoly in that area the prices are not that bad. Shameless plug coming up.

Kenny did you get a 15 or 19 gallon TJ tank? It would be bad ass to gain inches under the belly and mileage per fill up.

19.5 gallon. Has the roll over valve removed so it uses all 19.5 gallons

I thought they were the same. Just a difference in the filler tube length. There is a quick fix mod for it in the TJ section. Or was that the YJ I forget easily.

I never found any dimensions on the 15 gallon tanks but they were early model TJs when the 19 gallon was optional

I thought their stretch tank was expensive at $800 but this one really hits the wallet....

Wow, the more I read about the price of some of these things the happier I am about what we paid for the TJ. Between the Atlas, the Genright stretch gas tank and the Armor, I'm feeling pretty good

Something to considure, it says that you fill both tanks at the same time so how do you seperate them?

People have been using transfer pumps to simplify things

Yeah I'm lucky to get 250 out if a tank driving in the high desert. And driving at 60 helps so much with gas mileage it's ridiculous

I decided that I'm going to wait until I pay mine off to do any radical mods ... reasons are two fold ... one, it's under warranty until I pay it off so I don't want to void something I paid extra for ... two, no payments equal more money for mods ...

I have a list compiled in my head of all the mods I want to do and they will all require structural changes voiding my entire warranty ... stretch, shortened frame, flat belly, D60/14bolt axles ... until then I'm gonna learn how to weld, fab and build axles ... I've still got a couple years left on payments so I've got time

Agreed. I think Jery cans would be best.

Plus if it does have the engine crap the bed, it will get an LS. Trans/tcase not to worried about. Interior wise meh should be fine just need to keep it dry.

I've already had my steering system replaced under warranty. New tie rods, drag link, and ball joints. Not to mention some transmission cooling work done. If I don't have to pay for it yet I don't wanna ... lol

The big one that I'm holding out for is if I blow up my D30 ... lmao

With a jerry can you can alway thumb a ride to the gas station. But then with 45 gallon capacity you be in Utah before you run out of gas.

I would like to do something. 2004 Rubicon 3 1/2 RE lift 31 inch tires. I've owned this jeep for year and a half and I haven't even had it disconnected yet. I've done some hungry valley with four-wheel-drive parts last year. I've also done fire roads to Bear Creek for fishing all the way to highway 330. Have also driven the fire road above the snow lifts in Big Bear. I would like to try Cleghorn because it seems like a lot of people do it and it's not too difficult.

I would also be super interested in doing a trip with some fellow jeepers. I just moved down here from Santa Barbara so I don't really know the area too well for trails and such. So getting some tips from the pros would be awesome!
