    I want a gas tank that would hold probaly 65 gallons..I am not crazy and no I am not planning on going on any police chases. I get gas cheaper from my dads pump on his work truck than I can get trying to drive to colorado

    Northwest Metal Products makes a 43 gallon. I put one in a while back and it was a good move.

    NWMP Forest Frove OR 97116 tel 503-359-4427

    I have showed Northwest Metal Products my saddle tanks (14gallons each) they said that they would not stamp them with their name but would build them for 400 each. However they would want to see one of my tanks and would need the floor dimensions on your rig mine is a '77 with a lifted floor in the back.
    My Blazer is for sale for 1600 firm to anyone in this group with little rust, new tires and saddle tanks. working cruise FYI

    Try http://www.aerotanks.com they make a 40 gallon tank for a blazer, but they might be able to custom make one for you.

    I made (1/8 sheet) saddle tanks which hold 17 gal each. PIA to make and mount. The NWMP tank is aluminized inside. The last Aero tank I saw had rust inside and the guy was taking it off because of the rust. Maybe they (Aero) are better now... I dunno.
