    Try "car-part.com" there are a few in PA, either $50 for only marginally better or $300 new. I just did my chevy and almost lost it on the guy after he wanted $50 for me to take it out laying in the mud for one that needed cleanup anyways, hardly new.

    Lmc wants $135 plus shipping and dorman don't make one
    Next step cheapest way out is try gas tank repair kit on the pipe or two way epoxy I just wanna fill the hole in to get me threw winter or till I find a cheap one.

    leaking where? is the metal rotted? if so, can you cut out the rotten part and weld in a patch?

    if not i'm pretty sure i have one in my spare parts pile that i could sell cheap plus shipping.

    well you'd remove it from the truck before attempting to weld it.... and i've tried the 2 part exopy patches - very temporary fixes at best...

    i'll send you a pm now.

    Well, the right way to fix the problem is to replace the hose/tank. I have used "Seals All" from walmart to fix a leak on an aftermarket $1000 gas tank in the past. It goes on real liquidy and hardens right up and it did stop the leak. You will want to make sure that it dry before you use it though.

    We carry them on our website. Here's a link to them. The front one is out of stock right now but we should have them in at the end of the month. If you have any questions you can buzz me in the office or shoot me a PM.
