If I added another fuel tank in a CJ3B under the passenger seat what's involved? Mainly trying to figure out how the filler plate is attached to the body.
Some reason you don't want to go with a rear tank? To me, the tool box storage space is highly desirable and I built my own since my 3B glass tub didn't have one and because I wanted a solid mounted passenger seat. If you have spent any time in a flattly, you know storage space is extremely limited.
Also, you can get a lot bigger tank in the rear.
Here is a good thread on installing a rear tank.

I built my own rear tank and managed to get 25 gallons by outboarding the rear cross member, moving the middle tub mounts over the frame rails, and using the extra space created with a 1" body lift. At 25 gallons, there really isn't a need for two tanks and I haven't used a Jerry can since the install either.
That's a good bit of info Duffer, I'm still negotiating on a couple of 3b's. I had a 42' model way back but have forgot about most of the things I learned about it. Always been partial to the 3b's.
