Fuel Tank Relocation

Also for weight, I bet the ride height will be perfect with the FJ80 coils or super flex. I like lower ride height and no rake, so I'm definitely looking forward to another inch lower in the rear hopefully. Plus having less weight forward of the rear axle will have less weight leveraged on the front suspension. I've noticed when I have a bunch of weight in the rear, my 4runner rides so nice through the fast stuff. Between the lower ride height of the rear and weight leveraging towards the rear, it makes for a better ride in my opinion. Some folks like that raked stance and I'm not sure why. Maybe to keep from bottoming out easy? I don't mind being a hair lower in the rear when fully loaded with lots of weight. If I ever needed to tow anything (probably never) I'd look into air bags though.

Oh really? That's good to know. I assume the shocks being ran makes a significant difference in how it handles with more or less weight too.
I had a big reply to your weight/rake typed out, but realized it's splitting hairs, and it wouldn't benefit this thread- until we all have our tanks in. Fuel Tank Relocation (and new Rear Bumper design)

@Tyler James Inc I'm really curious to know your opinion on the weight/rake. Maybe that conversation can be taken to an appropriate thread? I'm sure others would like to know too.

Anyone have any idea if the Ford pump/sending unit has a low fuel light function??

Mini-update: I met with one of my suppliers this morning about having the fuel filler constructed; I'm thinking stainless tubing, but have the option for aluminum. Opinions?

I'd make it out of radiator hose. This way you always have a spare upper and lower hose. I think I'm actually serious. But if you must do it the pro way then SS.

Good morning. Here's another thread that talks about modding the Ford pump/sending unit for correct gauge orientation - and the relevant photos still work for the moment...

HAHA, fair enough!

I meant if it were going to be an AUX tank, in addition to the factory tank

Look at the address bar and delete everything in front of the "www" and it'll work.
