    I am almost done with my 3" body lift and had a question about what to do about the gas tank filler neck? Of the other 2 trucks I put body lifts in I have never done anything with them but my 83 was stretched tight and needed to be disconnected. I didn't get the kit only the blocks so does the kit come with an extension? What to do? Please any suggestions would be great.

    goto auto parts house and get a longer piece of rubber gas line /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif that is what i did on mine....only other thing that i could think of doing is cutting the original line and extending it with an extra piece, i just opted to replace with longer piece.

    If you can find a new rubber piece designed for gas that'd be ideal. However, most of the time, all they come with is a piece of metal tube you use to extend it. You cut your existing rubber and put the metal one in with hose clamps.

    Thanks for the replies. I was being cheap and didn't get the neck filler replacement piece. We used a piece of exhaust pipe for the main one and a piece of high pressure line (for power steering I think) for the overflow.

    Thanks again /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
