Chris,
No experience with these jeeps but a google search for DJ5 Mail Jeeps gave me this site:

http://www.postaljeep.net/

I noticed they had some tanks. Couldn't hurt to check. Good luck.

There was a new one at the AMVCC show last weekend. I think I know who brought it. I'll see if they still have it and how much.

Were all these tanks the same? I thought there were some hard to get ones where the fuel filler came in at a different location. Mine has the fill neck on the side, the sending and pick up tube hole in the top center and two fuel lines providing return or venting. It's at the radiator shop right now getting boiled out. But if it needs work and lining, it would be nice to know what options are out there.

What year is your DJ5? The gas tanks are different on top. You have a picture?
