I found one old thread with a search related to this that never really finished ... anyway, the one regret I have with my truck is I should have ordered the 34g gas tank. Has anyone here ever swapped in the bigger tank? Comments/suggestions?
Oh, this is a subject that interests me greatly. So much so, that I did a lot of checking and investigating. Here's what I came up with:
The 34 gallon tanks for the 1500 Quad Cab are expensive; around $400 or so. The fuel pump for the 34 gallon tank is not the same as the one used in the 26 gallon tank, so add another $400. There's also some misc. hardware required. The next high cost item was the labor. I was quoted $250 minimum. Seems like for a $55 option on the window sticker, something is really out of wack here. Pretty hard to justify the cost for the benefit. That's I've been looking for units in local salvage yards for a year with no luck.
Also, the 2500 tanks will not fit without problems, if they fit at all.
Yeah I said a minute....not a mintue. LOL Anyways I checked the link afterall and it looks like its a bed located tank. The one that goes under the bed mounts where the spare tire was. But it says its for the 2nd Gen Rams.
