    OK, the company I work for is going to be doing some custom aluminum fuel cells for a local s-10 slammer crowd, I was just wondering if anybody else would be interested in one? I will post again with a price and dimesions of the cells as soon as we get the quote done. Aslo if there are any persons interested in one and have there own dimensions, let me know, and we can get a price quote to you. You can either email me at Mudfreak@stny.rr.com or just reply to this post and I'll check back in a couple of days.

    What exactly are they being made to fit (years)? Would they fit a '99? And where are they mounting? Any idea on a price? Thanks!

    I'd be interested. A rough idea of cost would be great. Also can it be made to use the stock filler door?

    Thanks,
    John

    OK,sorry about the lack of info right now, I'll post the dimensions and price when I get them, but if you have your own dimensions, email them to me and I'll get you a price quote.

    The fuel cells we are going to make are going to be for S-10 trucks, and they will be mounted in the bed. These guys are the slammer crowd, so they need to get the gas tank out of the way I guess. I've seen them in magazines for around $600, but I'm sure our price will not be as much. My boss is doing the quote and as soon as I get it from him, I'll post it.

    In the bed or underneath the bed?? They'll still fit underneath, even if the truck is dropped. We had to cut about 4 inches off the end of my cousins tank and move it to the back. It fit underneath, but it is body dropped 3 1/2" [​IMG].......
