    I have a good blazer tank I'm not using. I was going to put it in my trail truck but am going with a fuel cell instead.

    how many gallon is that. see my original idea was take a side saddle tank and put it side ways but i have a feeling that the fuel pickup would not be that great as the leans(leaving me sputtering), though my dad pointed out htat i could just make sure its full before i it the trail. any suggestions and how much for that tank and what the area code in west chester

    Gas Tank

    I have a brand new 31 Gal. tank, bought it for my truck in Sept. They sent the wrong one, mine is a 40 Gal. We could swap if this is the right tank for you.

    Where would you put it, in the bed? that would look like crap, eat up a lot of space, and raise your center of gravity. whats wrong with the stock mounting location? what are you trying to accomplish?

    putting in rock sliders and i want to put braces where the tank is, plus it hangs down more than i like. and it wouldnt eat up that much space. it has a bed box, and the truck is a toy so it wont be hauling 4x8 sheets of ply wood or anything. just curious on the off chamber and gas goin away from the fuel pickup. but if i wheel with it full then shouldnt be a problem

    I fill my short bed saddle tank before going out and have never starved the pump on steep inclines or descents. A stock saddle tank strapped in the bed just looks like crap. But I know what its like to wheel on a budget and have to make do with what I have.
