    im looking for a 15-25 gal fuel cell to mount in the bed to replace the gas tank. mainly to get rid of the lean my truck has and also to keep it from being impaled while offroading. anyone know of a good brand? and how long would a normal install take? thanks

    Ill second Jazz. They make a good product. I've used quite a few of their fuel cells before and have never had an issue.

    You could even do something like this, with a remote fill back to the original filler. There is all kinds of options when it comes to running a fuel cell.

    prices didnt seem to be too bad. i would like to just run it thru the stock filter to avoid too much complication. i would really like to hear from somebody whos done this before. im sure someone on this forum has taken this route.
