You would most likely have a 19 gallon, email jeep they respond quite quickly. If you're filling up 15-16 you are going to have the 19 gallon. Emailing jeep is nice because you get to figure out all your gearing and any other fun features you didn't know are on your tj

My TJ is a 2003.It clearly states in my owners manual that my tank is 19 gallons.I know changes were made in 2003,but the tank should be the same,I would imagine.

In 1999 a 19 gallon tank became standard. All you do to get the build sheet is fill in your name, address, and contact info, then the last 8 of the VIN and mileage. I'm not sure if it being a 19 would affect the gas tank skid that you have. I'm guessing your skid would just bolt right up

I did the build sheet thing everyone is talking about this morning......
It confirmed a lot of things I already new about my '98 sport (19 gallon tank being one of them) and filled me in on a few things I didn't know.......
It was a simple process.

I've got a 19 gal tank (had a buddy run the code on my tank a few years ago and confirmed it with the build sheet this morning) and even though I coulda sworn I was on fumes a few times I've never been able to get more than 16 g's in mine.
