Has anyone replaced or repaired the mount for the forward fuel tank strap? At 148,000 miles my strap mount has rusted through. Currently holding the tank up with a ratchet strap.
I would have to take this one on myself, no way am I chancing losing the tune have not done the fuel pump or anything on my tank, but have pulled plenty of beds off other trucks to make repairs on other trucks with fuel tank mounted pumps, not a terrible job, just watch cab and bed re-installation, if you're not comfortable taking on the job yourself find an independent shop, will surely save you money and peace-of-mindI see there is a recall of sorts for it, with a 12 year warranty. I just don’t want the dealer flashing my truck. It is pre epa GDE tuned and has had no updates, ever.
I've done both several times, for my money and time I'll pull the bed, just has always proven easier for me, like mentioned earlier, most have 6 bolts and a couple of wire connections, and the fuel neck, as also mentioned I have done it with 2,3 even 4 people, but I have also done it with just me, it sounds and looks a whole lot more intimidating than it actually is, and fuel tanks, every time I take one out it seems like I have a "handful", probably because it's fooling with liquids, but I'd rather pull one of those old cast iron transfer cases that look like they should weigh 50#'s, then you end up juggling 700 pounds 😂😂, pulling the bed is not a bad job in my book, but if you've never done one, try to work with some one that has, you'll be surprised how easy it ends up beingDo I need to pull the bed? Can I just drop the tank and all wiring/plumbing will follow along?
