Thumbs up General Poll Genright Large Capacity Gas Tank

How many JK owners would be interested in a larger Capacity Tank built by Genright. www.genright.com Yes I am a Genright Product Pimp I know MichaelW has been on me to beat up on Tony for this product but if can show him a list with names of people willing to purchase a tank maybe I can sway him for build after the first of the year.
Just post up with your comments.

Regards,
Rick

I would like to see a nice one out there, especially if it's from a reputable company that I can trust.

I don't care if it's a smaller capacity tank, I just want one that tucks up above the frame rails on my Unlimited. I am very interested, as long as it isn't ridiculously priced. Thanks for asking !

A larger capacity safari tank would be high on my list!

GenRight makes some top notch shiat!

Larger capacity safari tank tucked up between the frame rails like the TJ tank with bullet proof skid plate and I'm there!

Just don't forget to relocate the evap canister while your down there.

Oh and if you need to remove the JK "trunk" to fit more gas I'm all over that.

Then when you are done, I want a air reserve tank to put in the old gas tank location.

I'd be very interested in a tank that was flush with the frame rails. There are several inches of clearance wasted with the current arrangement and I'd love to recover them and top it off with a robust skid plate.

If it's possible to increase the capacity, all the much better. I'd even be interested in a split tank arrangement with part of it on each side.

I would love one that is at frame rail level with the same if not more capacity. Or even a split system having one smaller one on the other side.

X2 My thoughts exactly.

Some form of armor option would also be a good idea.

Yes and no. yes it needs to be tucked up more to give back that wasted clearance. But then you have to deal with the skids for the t-case and tranny skids, which are just as low as the gas tank.

Getting the gas tank out of the way is definitely required, especially considering the flimsy skid plate that's on it, but maximize on the clearance the other skids need to be dealt with too.

Sign me up. I had an enduro tank on my TJ. Just get it up to the frame rails and I'll be happy.

I would get one in a hart beat if it was relocated behind the rear axle. I dont mind if I lose fuel capacity either. They would have to be able to use the stock fuel pump though... thats probably going to be a big deciding factor. Considering how low the stock tank sits, you have to think thats for a reasion. That fuel pump must reach the bottom of the tank. Maybe they could use a TJ or YJ fuel pump assembly? Either way I think I would rather drag the ass-end of my Jeep than the belly.

Come on Gen-Right, build a "bolt in" package with fuel lines and everything needed.


EDIT: I would not mind cutting the floor on the JK to remove that "trunk" and covering the hole witha nice sealed up lid for easy access to the fuel pump......

I'd be interested in having one of these. I'd like it to be flush with the frame rails and with appropriate armor. I don't mind giving up some capacity, but would be equally happy to gain a bit too. The key things would be flush with the rails, armor, and all the necessary pieces parts needed for install.

Keep it coming! I will need a guinea pig to test fit after the first of the year and yes it will use the stock pump and sending unit. For location..we need to test fit and measure for clearance. Also I have had interest in a muffler skid for the rear? what up with that? I guess I need to get under a JK and get dirty
