    Somewhere I heard or read that a Ford Ranger Tank will fit where the traditional auxiliary tank would go in the back of the frame of an FJ-40. Anyone know if this is correct and if it is, what year Ranger?

    Dunno about a Ranger, but I got good advice about a Sidekick/Tracker tank fitting back there not too long ago.
    I've got an early beetle tank back there myself.

    go with the sidekick/tracker tank.. fits like a glove.. but only gives you 11 gals.. but it has an intank pump. and it fits nice and tight.. so no departure angle probs...the best imo

    What year sidekick/tracker? How'd you run switching from tank to tank...assuming you still run with the original gas tank...

    I was going to run the beetle tank as an aux tank, but needed the space in the cab for my cage and to lower the seats. I was going to just run a transfer pump and always run the primary fuel pump off of the front tank.
