Thanks for the links.. I saved them both. When I can get some down time on this truck it will be getting a bigger tank.

Would a fuel sender unit from the 88 truck hook right up to a 95's harness?

If you buy the 38 gallon bronco tank like shown in the first link above you can re-use your factory pickup/sending unit. You just have to modify it to be longer (the tank comes with the necessary hardware to extend it) and make some new slots for the tabs to hold it straight.

I did the 38 rear tank and now I can hold 60 gallons under the truck!

I tried what I believe was a 80's sending unit and ended up running out of fuel with a half tank. I ended up doing what is written in the 'home' link above.

i plan on doing this mod myself when rebuilding my truck.

Jim's write-up is quite clean, but is there really a need to extend the return line? i always like to dispense with extra work where possible :-)

I think you would get some air bubbles forming while the fuel drops I to the last half of the tank. Also you may get siphon issues if the return is left out of fuel

i woudlnt be concerned with bubbles considering how the fuel sloshes around in there driving. back siphon is a good point, though!

The hardest part of modding the sending unit is the insertion of the extended rod thru the plastic part is keeping everything lined up. My original sending unit was falling apart and when I tried it, it fell apart. Believe you me, a new one is not cheap and I sweated getting the rod thru.
