Replacing a side frame rail or in-cab gas tank with a rear frame rail mount aluminum tank moves the fuel's weight, adding traction to the rear wheels of the truck. Gas tank could also be used as an auxiliary tank for extra fuel reserve.
This baffled 17-gallon bed-fill aluminum gas tank is flanged for frame rail mounting and includes fuel line fittings. Additional parts will be needed to complete installation, each sold separately:
Fuel Tank Sending Unit - Works with 6 volt or 12 volt systems.
Flush-Mount Fuel Filler - Available in polished finish with pop-up twist knob.
Filler Hose - Needed to make connection between fuel filler and rear mount tank.
A hole cut in the bed floor for the fuel filler, an extension of the fuel feed line and sending unit wires and relocation of the frame mounted spare tire will be needed.
For aftermarket gauge 0 to 90ohm.
For original gauge. Requires modification to float lever for correct fuel level reading.
Replaces original valve included with #43-5004 gas tank.
