cj2a fuel tank

Looking for an alternative to the under seat gas tanks, they just make me nervous to be honest. I know I can do a fuel cell but I am trying to keep that as open as possible in the back (going to be a fishing/camping rig) Just looking for any ideas that may be out there.

I run the under seat tank, a polymer one. Doesn't worry me much?
You can fit later tanks in the back from for say a postal DJ where the V brace is, and then come up with a filler of your own.

Have a race quality fuel cell and bladder made to fit in the stock location. Ya you are still sitting on it, but at least it is in a burst resistant double shell and much less prone to leakage in a roll if properly plumbed.

I had one...postal tank...not sure if I can find the pix. I had the filler neck coming out the right rear like a 5. Since the cap was vented it would puke gas when climbing waterfalls...or winching...80" wheelbase does not help. Had to remove the tank when I stretched the rear...pumpkin was too close. and a yes to removing the v brace in the rear to fit. I still wheel with the under seat tank...I have a rear seat for the boys.

I've been driving two different CJ-5's with this same tank since 1971 without a problem. If it blows up you'll never know it. If you mount it under the body you might live?

cut out the draw bar struts in back and build a tank that fits underneath. Not that hard at all.
