Plastic XJ Gas tank swap??

Recommended Posts

The stock spare tire is 9.5 inches high which is much shorter than a Cherokee gas tank.


I looked at it for my 91 long bed. From memory, you will need a tank about 30 inches square and 9 or 10 inches high.


Ford F150 gas tanks are close with 18 or 19 gallons. Even at that you will loose some ground clearance and have just your bumper between your gas tank and some other car or truck that can run into you. I have a trailer hitch bolted to my frame, so have that in addition to my stock bumper.


Best solution is to replace your stock tank with another stock tank. You get them on Ebay for less than $100
