Bronco fuel tank swap

Looking to add some extra capacity to the rear with the bronco tank swap, but also want it to be a plastic tank in case I do the WVO conversion later on. Does anyone know if the stock tanks from the 90-96 broncos were plastic or steel? I'd like to know before I start crawling around underneath rigs at the junk yard.

VO conversion, TS 6 Position Chip, E Fuel, 6637 Filter, EBPV delete + PCV Reroute, Diamond Eyes 3" Downpipe

STEEL. All Broncos from 1980- 1996 used the exact same gas tank.

Maybe this is useful for you if you go to a steel tank tho.

Stock would be steel.
I've seen quite a few plastic bronco replacement tanks on my local CL lately though for dirt cheap.

Ya it will work but it wont show the true fuel level bc there isnt enough travel in the float arm. Its all how u ajust the float. The way i set my tank up is i put the pick up tube about 3/4" from the bottom. And my float bottoms out at 3-4" from the bottom. So when i fill up i go about 2weeks, the first week the guage reads normal like to my front factory tank and then i run 1 week with the guage on E (little scary at first) and refill with 28gal of fuel. A rough est. Is im left with about 4 gall of fuel so i dont run out.

If u run steel the diesel will wash off the galvannized finnish keep extra filters in the truck. It took about four tanks to clear up the diesel.
