    If the tank is in the cab, find a place outside (possibly under the bed) to put your new fuel cell.

    Just priced boiling and sealing one today... It was cheaper to buy new.

  6. Changing out exactly what you have will always be cheaper and easier in the long run.
    Mounts, lines, fittings, senders, ass aches every step of the way.

    Change to a fuel cell if you need a need a fuel cell.

    Along with the price, it's sometimes pretty hard to find someone who will even work on a gas tank these days. If you are bent on having a tank behind your butt in the cab most of the aftermarket truck goodie vendors offer new tanks but I'd go with (and have) one under the back of the bed myself. Cell, burb tank that is adapted or a custom bolt in tank will all work.
     
  8. Find something that will work under the bed. HRP

  10. $175.oo gets you a brand new steel O.E. style one from Tanks. It can't be any better than that. That's so cheep I bought 2 for mine.
