Re: 71 gmc swb " Capt Mad Dog"

Welcome to the board...if you use the search button there's a bunch of threads of relocatinghg the tank to the spare tire area. But several companies sell the kits as well Brothers, LMC, etc...

Re: 71 gmc swb " Capt Mad Dog"

FuelCellGuy is the guy you're talking about for that...he builds custom tanks for carbed or EFI applications. Really nice work from what I've seen
