    Thinking of bobbing my blazer... and i want to install a fuel cell in the bed (20-22 gal.) Whats entailed in the install? Plumbing? Whats a sump? How will this all work? Do i run fuel lines in cab, through the firewall? Im considering a bob job like LakeTex. any help is greatly appreciated.

    The fuel cell, depending on what make you go with should come with brackets to mount the cell down. To plumb it, just get a install kit from <a target="_blank" href=http://www.summitracing.com>Summit </a> It should come with all the hose, fittings,pump and filter. The sump is the portion of the tank on the bottom where the fittings come out, it is called the sump becuase it is the lowest point in the tank. DON'T run the lines in the cab. Fuel and passengers don't mix.
