Yes you do!

Even with the stock fuel tank installed a double fits. The hard part is the mounting plate that goes between the 2 t-cases.


You could have saved some money Beard and got a BII tank with the same capacity for less. I guess since you already had the pump adaptor it was worth it.

I almost went the BII way but decided this would be easier and its only a 100 more. Most BII tanks go for around 100 new I think.

A 100 is a lot but this project is way over budget as is. I cant see me doing too many more modifications on the truck over the summer.

Yea it would cost $110 or so to fill up. But i could go 450 miles on 1 tank at 15mpg. I will stick with my stock 20 gallon tank!

If travel was REALLY an issue (dont know why that much is) then you can mount the C/Os on the lower links to give a better net wheel travel
Gil, use a third spring. It's a very low-rate spring (maybe 5 lbs/in) and it goes between the top spring and the upper coil seat. When the suspension droops out that far, the third spring will push the other two springs down and keep them in the right place. When there is more weight on the coilover, the third spring is completely compressed and occupies perhaps 1/4" of the coilover. There's a technical name for it but I can't think of it right now.

Kyle, thats called a tender coil. this has no bearing on the situation because as you know the slider/stops for the upper coils can only end at the shock body.
