Yeah I knew i would have to paint it...just with it being 3M and it being in a spay can , so easy to use....think I will try to find it before put my tank back up. I just want to convert what rust is left after i try to brush/grind it out so that i can paint it and then forget about it. It bedtime here in Tennessee...Check back in tomorrow evening. I have been taking picks of this and my lift kit and other repairs i have made....I might go all crazy and start a build thread one day soon.

If you get a chance can you take a pic of the sending unit and the tank? We have had discussions and a pic would be good for the next person. Also, dont forget to redo the fuel pressure before you put the tank back up. Connect everything up while it is on the ground and just use a gallon of fuel to see that you dont have any leaks and the pressure is good.

More food for thought:

-While you have the tank out, make sure the return line isn't pinched between tub and rear crossmember above the diff.

-If you havn't already, you can increase your gas tank size from 15 gallons (stock), to 20 Gallons, by removing the plastic sleeve on the inside of the filler neck. Grab some pliers, pull out the tube, and you instantly have a 20 gallon tank.

-I would remove that white cup in the bottom of the tank like Que said. You will not damage the tank by removing this. Just reach in and pull. The reason Que and myself recomend you remove this cup is because it indeed will eventually interfere with your fuel sending unit arm. My gas gauge would only drop to 1/4 tank, and no further, until empty. The gasoline warps the cup and prevents the float from falling to "E" on the gauge. I take hard corners, turns, and ride on steep inclines all the time, I have never had an issue with the heep losing fuel in a turn...

OK so I have tried to post pics and was told too large. I emailed them to myself where they were resized and still too big. I don't do a lot of internet or computer stuff but if you can tell me how I will post the pics your asking for.

I am in the process of grinding out the rust I found...also the return line was tight mainly cause the body mounts are crap. Ordering a whole new 1inch body lift with mounting hardware tomorrow. No time like the present.

If it is hard to move that return line by hand, it is pinched. You can detatch the return line from where the sending and return lines turn from rubber into metal near the fuel filter. Unhook the return line from the metal line, and pull it through the crossmember.

You can buy a new 2' section of fuel rated hose at Advance or Autozone. It is important that the return line not be crushed when you put it all back together.

The body mounts wear and allow the body to push on the return line causing high pressure. The high pressure causes the pump and the pressure regulator to go. That is why it's important to check the pressure before putting the tank back up and after.

Hey guys ...Sorry I am not able to move fast on this but with kids and work its really hard to find time to commit to fixing this till the coming up weekend hopefully. I did however take your advice and remove the plastic white cup in the bottom of the tank....when the first rivet snapped i paused and said to myself....i sure hope these guys know what they are talking about. Then i thought oh well too late now and ripped the rest out. Vacuumed out the tank and its ready to go. Waiting for the body mounts to come in and install them. I have most of the rust ground down and ready to hit it with the 3M rust converter. My local parts place sells it for 12bucks and they say it works great. I appreciate all of your input. I do have pics of the tank and sending unit as requested. I just read the thread on how to post pics and will try to get the account set up tonight.

Don't forget to check the pressure while it's on the ground. You can same yourself a lot of aggravation further into the swap.

I ran one for a year then it just quit. They replaced it for free. I reinstalled it and 2 years later, no issues.

Everyone says Bosch, and they know their stuff. If you have a choice now, I'd go Bosch. The AZ part is hit or miss. One good thing, I'm pretty good at dropping the tank.
