    If you want easy, order a kit and bolt it on! that's as easy as it gets! This may not be what you're looking for though.
    There have been some other posts on the boards here on this subject, so you might look for some more info there. I can't give out much advice since it's kind of our job to sell our kit, but there is nothing to stop you for breaking out the torch and welder and getting started. That's how my first one came about.
    Sorry, good luck

    ORD's kit is definatly the way to do it. You dont even need a welder. You should have no problems because you dont even have to drop the tank like i did in my blazer. No questions about it, the ord kit is better than i could have made and i make plenty of stuff for my truck. You should see the welds on his stuff.
