Jeep JK/JKU Aluminum Fuel Cell with Steel Skid for Back Half Kit For 07-18 Wrangler JK and Unlimited MotobiltMB5013
The Motobilt Jeep JK/JKU Aluminum Fuel Cell with Steel Skid is a premium solution for relocating the factory fuel tank on a Jeep JK (2 door) or Jeep JKU (4 door) from the passenger center of the vehicle to the rear when you are looking to add space for a true triangulated 4 link rear suspension.
Designed specifically to function seamlessly with our MB3025 Jeep JK/JKU Back Half Kit, this aluminum fuel cell system simply bolts in place and makes the process of building a fully custom Jeep JK/JKU easy and fast. Our complete fuel tank system was expertly designed using the latest in 3D CAD technology to ensure a perfect fit. (ONLY FITS THE MOTOBILT JK/JKU BACK HALF FRAME KIT. IT WILL NOT FIT A FACTORY FRAME.)
The 20.9 Gallon (79 liter) capacity tank is constructed from 1/8 Inch aluminum that is precision CNC laser cut and accurately CNC press brake formed. The formed aluminum tank is professionally TIG welded and includes a CNC machined fuel pump mount which features an o-ring groove engineered for the factory Jeep JK/JKU fuel pump seal (Mopar 55366298AA sold separately) for fuel tight and leak free connection.
We've also included CNC machined aluminum bungs for the fuel filler and fuel filler vent. The tank accepts your factory Jeep JK/JKU fuel pump assembly (Mopar 68065575AC sold separately).
The front side of tank and skid plate features a recess which is engineered to clearance your differential cover for larger axles under full suspension compression. The rear of the skid plate is angled to increase your departure angle.
The aluminum tank is separated from contacting the steel skid by 1/8 Inch thick neoprene rubber which dampens vibrations, prevents galvanic corrosion between dissimilar metals and eliminates rubbing, scratches and rattling. We also include three (3) bolt-on rubber bumpers at the rear of the tank which simply bolt into preinstalled threaded bungs on our MB3025 JK/JKU Back Half Kit. These rubber bumpers act as a cushion and eliminate vibration and rattling.
The heavy duty 100 percent American made high strength steel skid plate protects your aluminum tank from rocks and trail abuse. The skid plate features weep holes on all four corners to allow mud and debris to be flushed.
