    Extra Gas Tank

    I would like to install an extra gas tank in my 1951 CJ3A. I want to mount it behind the rear axle, up under the floor. Any one ever do this? What is the best tank to use?

    Welcome Paul Pouliot,

    A post '72 V6 or V8 CJ 5 gas tank mounts behind the axle. The hitch V frame would have to be removed on your Willy's frame, and the fill hose will have to be fabricated into the body.

    Another popular idea is to remove the tool box on the passenger side, and there are manufacturers that build a gas tank that mirrors the driver's side. A crossover hose can be used to fill both tanks without having to turn the Jeep around to fill the passenger tank.
