This is the GenRight Crawler™ Series ALIEN (formerly the RK Comp tank) Gas Tank to fit a Jeep TJ / Jeep LJ (1997-2006). It is specifically designed for guys wanting the maximum amount of rear wheelbase stretch, the kit and allow you to move the rear axle back as far as possible and still have a gas tank under the rear of the Jeep (not inside).
This additional space can be used to move the rear axle back up to 9" (8" on Dana 60) to stretch your Jeep Wranglers wheelbase to well over 103" for the absolute best departure angle and vehicle capability.
Just in case you did not know, the GenRight gas tanks are unique in that they allow you to stretch your vehicles wheelbase without cutting the frame and body as in the old days. This tank still mounts underneath, allowing you to still keep your back seat (or cargo area)!
Why is stretching the wheelbase important? Well, once you are on 35's or bigger you have lifted the vehicle and geared it down. Now you have added traction and torque making the vehicle feel more unstable than it once did. Here is why: the height-to-length ratio (that the vehicle was originally designed with) has been altered. We all do it in search of more ground clearance. So now you can re-gain the proper height-to-length ratio for greater stability on big tires ON & OFF road. Besides, everyone wants the better departure angle and improved driveline angles you get with stretching the wheelbase (not the body).
FYI: We also offer two other stretch models, for less stretch, see the standard COMP model for 7" or the EXT model for up to 5" of stretch.
Special Price offer is only good while supplies last!

The tank was ordered and GenRight followed through with delivering on time (appreciate that). We then found out that the rock crawler x factor 8” stretch kit calls for the shocks to be mounted where the tank mounts. We wound up frenching shock towers into the rear of the frame (blocking the GenRight filler neck). We then had to TIG weld the filler neck to the front edge of the tank and run a hose in front of the frame bend. Quality product, but I mis-read Rock Krawler stretch kit part of the description. It works with GenRight's Rock Crawler kit, not Rock Krawler brand's kit. But we made it work! Mike on Sep 24th 2018
