Look in the FAQ under "Inside Gas Tank Locations"

My cell:




I am going to change the mount by laying the cell on the tub instead of on rubber mounts and running straps over it. Also, I am going to run steel braded lines inside the bad to the engine. I don't have a top and the exhaust is on the driverside.

That is exactly what I want to do,

Use the factory pump/filter/regulator.

How did you mount it ???????????

Yes, that is the factory one. You cut a hole in the cell and make three rings.

There are currently 4 threads that are "stickied" at the top, it's the one named "Important: The 'Official Jeep Talk FAQ' v2.0".

It has the original version of what iispms did posted and mentions part numbers and pieces made.

why do you want to lay the cell directly onto the tub, i heard that it may cause the tank to crack. Not that the body flexes that much, but the reason im asking cause i have that exact same setup/tank waiting to be mounted in mine when i finish with some other stuff................

Pumpkin, I think its a weight issue, with it elevated by 4 corners thats alot of fuel sloshing around and weighting it down...Tab's bend, welds break, fuel leaks.

when searching for fuel cells in a TJ i came across your post

i have been looking online for tanks and what not

i can find tanks for around 200 and then a kit that is 500 bucks??

did you have to buy some 300 dollars worth of hoses and ends and fittings?

any help would be greatly appreciated thanks

the kit i have found is the following

You can quickly spend a good chunk of money on fittings, hoses and misc stuff. $300 worth might be difficult to say, you can look up everything that they has listed there and put a price on it. Might be worth the convenience of buying it all in one place and only having to deal with one vendor.

I cant believe some vendor hasnt put together a single order parts kit for this yet...

maybe even with all the fuel lines cut to length, fittings fit, so you blot it in, and go... I bet it would sell if it was out there...

not my style (I like to do things the hard way cause im an idiot, and usually end up costin g myself more in tools, do-overs etc) but im sure someone would buy it.

i have been searching and clicking and reading and everything

found somewhere that a person used Hydraulic fittings instead of the AN fittings which could save a little money but then you just have to figure out which size fittings you need and blah blah

i would think it would be as simple as putting in cell and hooking up lines that are currently there from the old tank to the new cell but nope
