Fuel tank help
 
About 2 years ago, I replaced my original rusted-out fuel tank with a new poly tank. It was working fine until someone backed into my Jeep and cracked the tank. I am trying to avoid buying a new poly tank and can't seem to find any replacement steel (or aluminum) fuel tanks for my '93 YJ. Any suggestions? Can I repair the poly tank and just get a more heavy duty skid plate to protect it, or do I have to buy a new poly tank and hope this doesn't happen again? I'm really hoping to get a metal tank again to avoid this problem in the future...

Anything can happen but the odds are you're fine with another poly tank. Skid plates really aren't for rear end crashes anyway. There has been a poly tank, stock, on my 89 4.2 for 23yrs., without an issue.
