    Question F J Cruiser extra fueltank

    I am a newcomer to this forum.
    I have just bought myself a 2013 F J Cruiser and would like to fit an extra fueltank.
    Apparently this can be done by Maniac 4x4 and Safari Centre.
    Is there any other companies who can do this besides the abovementioned?
    Thx for your help.

    Welcome Corrie. There are lots of companies who make/fit long range tanks on the FJ Cruiser depending on where you are located. I myself just fitted an Excel 85L tank to my FJ this week. It is a must on the FJ !

    Corrie, wherever you fit the tank, please only fit Exel tank, Iím on my 3rd in various Cruisers with no issues, and this is what I fitted on our 2012 FJ that I sadly sold in 2015.

    Hi, any fuelpump issues after fitting the extra tank?
    A few FJ owners did have problems it seems.
    Safari Centre (N1 City) tells me they didnt have any comebacks and no fuelpump problems.

    No problems at all. FR have been making tanks for years and Iím sure they know what theyíre doing now. I honestly struggle to believe that metal filings or shavings would be left in a newly manufactured tank.

    Thank you so much.
    Do you know where to purchase FJ Accessories in Cape Town area.
    Things like windshields/deflectors on the doorwindows and bonnet protector.
    I found canvas seatcovers at House of Henry, so that is sorted.
