    every time I fill up you can see gas dripping from inside the fender for a short period of time. I doesn't overflow out of the spout just behind the fender at the filler neck. The truck had a body lift on it when I got it and that had to come off. They had replaced the filler neck cause it was cracked and brittle. But I didn't ask questions now it is leaking again. Is this fixable and can I do this? Is it the actual filler neck that keeps leaking or is it a hose or what?

    You might be able to get some buddies over and remove your bed from the frame to replace the filler neck. I'm not sure if that is the way it's supposed to be done or not. I would definitely try to fix it myself though if I were you. Nice Taco by the way.

    thanks man I appreciate it, I just thought gas is so damn expensive why waste any of it, I just wasn't sure how tough of a fix it is.
