Re: Best Under Bed Fuel Tank Conversion.

Well you should not have to blend bedliner if you get a fuel door. Here is a pic of how the 2002 camaro tank sits in mine.

Yeah, the license plate door seems to be the only option that requires no modification to either the bedlined or exterior painted surfaces of the bed.

I've also got rear leaf springs to contend with, too.

Hey 396, I'm getting some more parts together for my build. Just so you know, that tank is only $80 on rockauto

Re: Best Under Bed Fuel Tank Conversion.

I didnít know what the shipping would be so I ordered everything from amazon. Tank, sending unit and straps. I cut out the rear cross member and spare tire bracket and the tank fits perfect between frame rails. I havenít gotten any further with it like seeing how the behind the plate filler will work. I have a little different situation since I have a body lift and custom rear bumper.

Sounds good. I'd love to see some pictures once you're done.

Re: Best Under Bed Fuel Tank Conversion.

I would too you guys. I ordered the '72 Blazer tank that's made by Tri-plus I think. Seems to be made fairly well. It's a 21 gal and has the filler neck on the side. That makes it a little easier to work with a step side bed, maybe. We are going to do the fill neck behind the running light socket deal.

The downside is that it doesn't have a big enough hole in it for a fuel injection pump assembly, nor a baffle. We bought the Holley retro fit pump assembly to work with our system. Hopefully it works out.
