This is a new 19 gallon Zinc Steel Gas Tank that is silver painted, with baffles, located under the bed. It replaces the the factory tank that was located in the cab. It is located behind the rear axle and fits on the frame rails and requires the spare tire mount to be eliminated. 1/2 TON STEPSIDE ONLY. WILL HAVE TO MODIFY CROSS SILL FOR FLEETSIDE.
*Please Note: This item is "Oversized" and requires an Oversized Shipping Charge as noted above.
(We will try to pack your items in a way that will help to consolidate shipping charges and pass on any savings to you at the time of invoicing.) Dimensions 28" wide 11" tall and 18" deep overall width 33" with brackets. Filler neck 1 1/2 O.D. Lower fittings are 3/8" pipe thread and top fitting is 1/4" pipe thread. Mounting bolts and some fittings included.
The tank looks nice and the basic installation was easy enough. However, the top of the tank sits higher than the frame rail and interfers with the cross sill. The description states that it is for a stepside only and fleetside will have to modify the cross sill. My truck is a stepside and apparently modification is needed anyway. Also there is no way to contact the manufacturer for guidance on fuel line pick up or venting etc.
