    Just looking at their website delivery time seems to vary according to the tank you require. But in weeks not months.
    For example;
    NOTE** Tanks may take up to 2-6 weeks for delivery. Brackets and caps are sold separately. Made in USA.

    I also detect that there maybe a play on words regarding the MADE IN USA thing, I am starting to think that maybe only the caps and brackets are USA made!!!

    Just ask them for sure before you order. US or not? I'm in the market for a tank too. I'll end fixin what I have though. I think anyway.

    The tanks made for the Hot Rod Company are not made overseas.

    I have one of their tanks and it also took that long to get. Well worth the wait! They are VERY well made and from what I understand, the reason it takes so long is because there is one person making those T tanks. They are soldered and are very authentic. Just put your order in and wait. All you can do.

    Sometimes, good quality parts just take longer to make. Especially when they're not mass-produced overseas.

    Yes, they are all hand made in the USA by one man.

    I couldn't wait that long, I bought my T tank from Langs, super quality, decent price, nice straps. Had it in three days!

    or just make your own,,,,bend some tin and weld the seams,,way cheaper. I used 14 ga. steel,,it will outlive me. I looked at fuel cells,,there were some reasonably priced but I could not find the dimensions I was after and my truck being an IHC the only aftermarket tank is $500!

    Yes, they are very nice quality, I had one in my old Pickup and was very happy with it.
