I bought this tank in pretty much the shape it is in. I had started to clean it up, but kept getting side tracked and never finished, it has been sitting in my garage for way to long and could use a good home. As you can see from the pictures, it has some surface rust but it seems solid and should boil out nicely. This one has 4 holes through the whole thing that I believe were used for mounting. These have old bolts that appear to be welded in. I had always planned to just drill them out, but never got that done either.

I'm at the point now where garage space is more important than having a fairly large cruiser part laying around that will still take me a long time to get to doing anything with. I would rather see this thing get a decent home.

I would like to get $100 for it and really would like to avoid shipping as it is big and heavy. I would be happy to work with someone though to get it done via mudship. I am located in Chandler, AZ, in the Phoenix area.

The dark stain on the side is from some gear oil leaking out of a spare axle when we moved to Chandler from Tucson. To the best of my knowledge this tank doesn't leak. :)

Woods, for $75 I can probably get a pickup.

Do you have the straps?

I know the pickup looks appealing but if we can work out the shipping, I could really use this tank as my project currently has no gas tank. But I understand that you want it out.

No straps, just the tank. Basically what you see in the pic. Airon23 is first in line, but if we can't make arrangements for shipping, Mace is second.

Those tanks didn't use straps. They had huge lengths of threadall that ran through them and through the rear floor and it bolted into the floor.

Mace (Jason) is gonna ask you about dropping off this tank in Carefree - you can talk to me directly about how you want to be paid... The tank is for my FJ-40.
