tank mounts to skid, skid mounts to frame.

What you will need will depend on how much damage you have. Are the mounting points for the skid to the frame rusted away?

I would change the fuel pump since you have the tank down already.

Yes change the fuel pump while your at it. Order a free quadratec or jcwhitney catalog and buy a new.tank skid and as long as you have a decent socket set, a jack or a friend with a strong chest lol. put the tank on the skid then mount the skid to the frame. And the fuel pumps aren't that hard to do either. And if you do the pump, also do the filter. Its on the inside of the frame behind the drivers side seat under a little plate. Just follow the lines. I did a filter and pump for 90 bucks from Autozone. But if you just want to fix your tank, I suggest going online or go to a pick-a-part and get what.you need. Don't pay some dude 250 bones for that sh*t
