Modded gas tank from 19.5 to 29.5 Gal

Well it took all of my modding skills to do this but I finally got it done. Now I can drive long distance without having to stop at a gas station and get more gas.

I searched and searched and finally figured out how to do it. Like I said only serious modders should attempt this mod.

and you still have to stop and get out to fill up....which will take the same amount of time to go to a gas station and use your credit card or debit card to get gas...

Yeah but I won't have to spend the money. I can get gas in Austin for 2.82 and where I am going gas is 3.43. So that is the part I like.

I don't know for mounts yet, Will probably just strap them in at the moment in the bed.

Nah, he can have his passanger go out the back window and pour it in while driving down the interstate or pull a Luke Duke and go from the cab to the bed while driving. You didn't hurt your self while installing this extremely difficuly/complex mod did you?
