You probably dropped close to what a full bolt in LRA kit is.
Not quite, but close, Morgan -

The replacement main tank for FJZ 80 from Long Range Automotive is a complete kit with 37 gallons capacity (140 litres, not 105) and sells for $1,495.

That's an excellent product at a very reasonable price. I didn't realize the LRA tanks were available in the U.S. and now on my short list. For the price of a RTT you can have 37 gallon capacity...impressive! Curious if the tank would interfere with a Cruisin Offroad skid plate? Looks pretty close.

Thanks, sir. We are just starting to promote them, though we have been importing since last year. Georg has installed them at Valley Hybrids for years, as have many of our shop friends.

Jason and I have been talking and I think he may make them available to customers in BC, so suggest you give him a shout to discuss clearance. Love to hear what you hear :)

@RFB Your best bet to complete your aux tank project, is to monitor eBay au. There are dismantlers with big yards, that regularly post parts rigs. email’em and ask if they have a rig in their yard with an “sub tank” system. Confirm they will ship overseas and work out an arrangement for them to post the bits & pieces you need for a buy it now price.

Before you go any further, I’d suggest you confirm whether your dual filler is diesel or unleaded. I can’t remember all the differences off hand, but the diesel version is slightly more problematic in N.A. .

Assuming your tank has mounting straps, and a sending unit, you have most the hard parts to acquire in N.A. At a minimum you are missing the ECU controller DS under the rear Cargo area window, a pig tail connecting the tank to your existing harness, a pig tail connecting the overhead console via the A pillar to the DS kick panel, the transfer pump assembly, and the main tank pump assy is different if you go 100% OEM. (There are work around for this via the Evap line). And there are an assortment of options if you do not go 100% OEM

Unless you have an LX 450, There should be an exsisting harness plug for the system ECU under the back window, but regardless you will have to wire in the dash switch.

Hi, I am thinking about the cruisin offroad skid plate and would be also interested if it interferes with the LRA main tank. Did you guys test fitted that ?

Thanks,

Jorge
