    I bought a http://www.nwmp.com/ 37gal tank from them. It wasn't cheep but it came with everything needed. I had to remove the rear crossmember(or move it back, I have my hitch back there so didn't need it)and cuz i have a 3" body lift i cut off the mounting tabs from the new tank(voiding warrenty, oh well) and welded some angle iron a bit lower(this is what touches the bottom part of the frame when you tighten up the mounting straps) so the whole tank sits up nice and high. I then fabed my own skid plate. I have some pics in my gallery here...anyway I love the range I have now! I can keep on truckin for 4 1/2 hrs down the freeway were before I was stoping every 2hrs or so.
    Good Luck

    I still have the second gen tank sitting on the side of the house, when I start putting my TBI in I'll put a new fuel pump in it and hang it...I'm going to fix the spout to face to the drivers side as it now faces the passenger side...
    Just think, 300 miles between fill up's...not 200... /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
