    I'm looking at getting a Northwest Metal Products gastank for the 72. I need to know if there are any problems as far as installation or reliability. I will be selling my other tank once I get this one. It's only 2 1/2 years old. We'll talk about that later.

    I just installed one! Look in my gallery listed below. The only issue is that it mounts lower than stock so if ground clearance is an issue then...if you have a body lift you can do what I did, look at my pics...
    The only other thing is that in the location NWMP puts it it is very close the the rear diff(well I have a D60 so that might have something to do with it??)
    Good luck

    My 40 gallon tank is kind of close to my TA Products differential girdle, but not too horribly close.

    I've had mine for 4-5 years now. The only 2 minor issues is i had to replace the fuel level sender once and I had to do a little 'massaging' with a hammer to clear my rear sway bar. Running stock rear diff. It does hang lower but thats not a big deal to me.... definitely worth the fewer (but more expensive) trips to the pump.
