    Hey guys!

    I've run into a bit of a snag with my truck here. I was originally intending to simply weld the front fuel door opening into a hole I'd make out back, and patch the front with the peice from the rear.

    However, I've found out that it'd be nearly impossible to fit a filler neck back there, unlike the older trucks.

    My question is if anyone can think of a good reason why I couldn't take some 2.5" aluminized piping, and just plumb it up to the stock filler door location. Would I have any issues with it spitting fuel back up at me, or shutting the pump off if I used the 2.5" stuff?
