    I'm putting a 5.7 vortec into my 87 Jimmy and was wondering if a gas tank with the in tank fuel pump from a 2 door 96-99 tahoe would fit into the 87. How much different are these frames back there? Does anyone have one of these trucks to take a quick look/messurements. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Mike

    If you do go with a fuel pump from a Tahoe....do not use the 4 door model. I just replaced the fuel pump in my 4 door, it cost me $300.00 A 2 door pump was only $89.00.

    P.S. I have a 4 door fuel pump if you wnt to try and rebuild it.

    Wow, I wonder what the difference is. Maybe I could just get the 2 door pump and install it into my 87 tank somehow.

    Just went to Autozone at lunch and I OWE YOU BIG TIME!!! The 2 door blazer has the high pressure pump that looks exactly like the TBI pump and should fix perfectly. I can just use my old tank and everything. This design must have been a hold over or something from the previous TBI system for some reason. All the other truck/subs/tahoe's use a combination sender/pump thingy that's 2-3 hundred bucks and the 2 door tahoe fuel pump is just 71.99! This kicks some major booty.....

    Thanks!
