Anyone else have this body lift problem?

Since I put the body lift on, my check engine light has been on due to the fuel line extension. I have to pump my gas extremely slow. When I looked under the truck a few times, the fuel line seems alright, a little twisted tho.

For a solution, my mechanic told me I needed to buy the fuel line again... but that's too short since the lift. Do you think home depot would have a hard rubber tubing like this?

most flaresides require the filler neck to be extended on body lifts. get something about 2"-3" longer and you will be fine....

I don't remember doing anything to my fuel lines when I did my Body lift.

If your talking about the filler neck, I had a extension like Maurice said that came with my kit. That was a 10 minute install. Just cut the hose, install the extension and re-bolt up the cap. Never had any issue with it.

If your actually talking about the fuel lines though, I don't remember having to do anything there.

Sorry, I was talking about the feed hose. I installed the metal extension tube in between the feed hose. But the hose kinked entering the tank due to the angle it came in at. I'm taking it all out again and giving it another go in a bit.

Yeah I've never heard of that either. I've done 2 body lifts now and didn't have to extend the filler neck on either one.

I used the rubber extenders for the filler neck and the vent tube but didnt have any issue with the hose kinking or twisting about in the tank...? It should have been a simple cut and extend process.

Well I concluded that the extension tube given was too long, so I cut about an inch and a half off and re-applied it. The tube now enters the tank at a more gentle angle allowing better flow.

I reset the battery to clear the check engine light, so we'll so if it pops back on in the next couple days

when i did mine i had a similar problem. mine was under the hood. the large purge/vapor hose kept coming off causing a check engine light. i had to put a simple hose clamp on it.

the reason you have to fill it slow is because your vent is kinked or pluged up it makes the fuel burp back and come up the filler neck
