The new Street Trucks mag has a write up on the new No Limit fuel cell its completly bolt in with new crossmembers with it and priced pretty fairly I think and it still allows you to lay out too

Cool ill check it out,... one of my buddys told me last week that he had what it seems to be a 12 gallon tank that came out of another small truck and its in great conditions and based on the measurements that he gave me over the phone the tank would tuck right under the cab and not hang lower the rockers im gonna go see the tank some time this week and the best of all he only wants 20 bucks.....

Yeah you can't beat 20 bucks haha.... That No Limit tank is like 18 or 19 gallons I think, also I think you said your truck had a 400 and those things love gas lol
