    Hi all. This is my first post here, but I have been reading for awhile. I came over from the BBS forum from ORC.
    Anyway, I would like to put a Suburban gas tank into my K30 long bed behind the rear axle, between the frame rails. Anyone done this? Is it a bolt in with GM brackets, or is it custom mounting? any help is appreciated.

    '84 K30, 6" suspension, 3"body, 350, 350, NP205
    D60, 14 FF, 4.56 Gears, 35" Ground Hawgs

    I bought a 3/4 ton P/u a while back that had this set-up and it looked factory. Wish I had more details.
