Does a larger gas tank for an 06 WK exist?
 
I was just wondering if there was a larger gas tank that could be installed on the 06 WK. If anybody knows of anything, please let where I can find it. Thanks.

The 2008 update is slightly larger, I think a gallon or so.
I also recall one of the Australian aftermarket companies developed a long range tank, have a look at ARB.

The one from Australia is from a company called Long Range Automotive and goes in the spare tire location (WH over there instead of WK). I believe there is also a company in South Africa that does one but the name is escaping me at the time.

Thanks for the responses, I'll try putting my google skills to work on this. I used to have a 97 Tahoe with a 33 gallon gas tank, so I'm a little desperate to get that back :)

I can't find anything on this. Can you guys point me in the right direction with a URL?

There is a guy in Jeep Commander.com (Huypilot) i think.. that had a tank made for his XK which is located in the spare tire location and can handle 30 gallons in addition to the stock 20 gallon tank.

Here you go. Looks like it is a 69 liter tank = another 18 gallons

They're not listing anything for a WH/WK?
Worth an email to them though for sure.

I remember this now, it meant most guys were shifting their spares to a roof basket.

Fourth one from the top on the Jeep list: JEEP GRAND 99 ON
I believe that would translate to 1999 and up Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Id believe that prolly wouldnt fly too well in the states. Fuel tank in the spare tire well would be a disaster if you got rear ended.

Read: Ford Pinto

Also, the NTHSA issued a warning not too long ago for 1993-2004 Grand Cherokees saying that due to current gas tank location, these vehicles MAY be more prone to fires in rear-end collisions.
