Replace your side frame rail or in-cab gas tank with a rear frame rail mount tank. Free up room inside the cab and eliminate unpleasant gasoline odors while driving. This steel gas 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 and fewer trips to the gas station. Rust, scale and the effects of time cause corrosion of your gas tank. These deposits can cause the tank to leak or create fuel flow problems. Eliminate this risk by replacing your gas tank today!
These baffled 19-gallon bed-fill steel gas tanks are flanged for frame rail mounting and include fuel line fittings and mounting hardware. Additional parts will be necessary to complete the installation. You will need to add a sending unit, flush-mount fuel filler and filler hose, each sold separately. Sending units will work with 6 volt or 12 volt systems. You will need to cut a hole in your bed floor for the fuel filler, extend the fuel feed line and sending unit wires and relocate the frame mounted spare tire. Flush-mount fuel fillers are available in polished finish with a keyed cap or pop-up twist knob. Order the filler hose to make the connection between the fuel filler and rear mount tank.
