    wrong gas tank in 72 CJ5

    I bought a CJ5 in an auction that was listed as a '69. I bid site unseen and won the bid but it is not a '69. I think its a '72
    Either way - I got a good deal, but as I'm getting time to look int this thing, there is definitely something strange about the gas tank. this can not be the correct tank and its mounted through a hole someone cut in the rear deck.
    Where to find the correct tank and skid plate - any good sources?

    I don’t have any help for you, but congrats! Good looking Jeep, a little elbow grease and she’ll be great!

    Like everything it all depends on your budget. Omix ADA makes a full replacement kit that matches the original pretty well. If you want a more substantial tank and skid plate GenRight makes a bad ass tank and plate that I’m putting in my Scrambler.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
