It's hard to say for sure if it holds a full 30 gallons. It definitely holds quite a bit more than the stock tank. I put some fuel in it from gas cans (about 7 gallons) then went to the station and put 10 gallons in it, then drove about 50 miles and put another I think 17 gallons in it to fill it up all the way.

When the tank is full, the gas gauge will read full until you are down to about 20ish gallons then the gauge works like stock to empty.

I got the tank from 4wd but I don't see it on their site anymore. With rebates and such it was a good deal less than what is listed on the genright site. Other than the tank, I got a new fuel pump ~$200 from Oreilly's, some more white lithium grease anti-seize and hose clamps ~$20, and now the JCR nutstrips ~$50. I couldn't find a price for new filler hoses, but I do plan on getting some soon.

I didn't know Transfer Flow made one. I honestly don't remember when I first saw this one, but I bookmarked it that day.

Ya. It's a lot better than the 10 usable gallons I have had since September.

To anyone who has ever done a write-up: Thank you because I never realized how long it took to put everything together.

Re: Genright XJ Extended Range Gas Tank install

$1,000 for a gas tank. Jeeze.

It is nice, and id love to have 30gal in tank. But for less than $150 i can carry two 5gal gerry cans.

Or for about $200 i can carry two 4gal rotopax containers.

Both of those options are not nearly as cool as the genright gas tank.

Re: Genright XJ Extended Range Gas Tank install

Dunno - nothing says "expedition" like a couple of gerry cans on the rear bumper, unless it's a high clearance 1/4 ton trailer with gas cans.

Re: Genright XJ Extended Range Gas Tank install

Genright XJ Extended Range Gas Tank install

I have the same genright tank in my XJ and I'm very happy with it.

Fit and finish is top notch and I had no issues with my install. I don't have a tail pipe so I never had the issue the OP has with it.

I'm not sure I would have spent the coin on this tank originally, but I did some work for a guy and he traded it to me. Now that I have it, it really is worth it if you are into long range travel in your XJ.

I mentioned that. Those prices you are quoting are without mounts. This tank also comes with a 3/16" skid.

Mine was serial number 4XXX. Don't know if they started at 0001 or not or if the serial numbers include all of their tanks.

Re: Genright XJ Extended Range Gas Tank install

Got 'em on my site and had some interest but no sales. Looks like a sweet project though.

Re: Genright XJ Extended Range Gas Tank install

I want one.

It may be on the wish list for a while, but overall it makes a lot of sense to me.

You can buy it cheaper from other vendors including Serious Offroad.
http://www.seriousoffroadproducts.co...-Jeep-Cherokee

I like it. A nearly invisible way carry extra fuel in a well built, armored, frame-mounted fuel tank, instead of Molotov coacktails hanging off the back rack.
It also provides a lower center of gravity and less added weight due to not needing a bumper or roof rack.
If I could just get over the $900 price tag. A couple of trips through the Arizona Strip should help pay for it.

I think he was asking about the Transfer one. I couldn't find any info on it either.
