Did you raise your gas tank crossmember? You might want to do that anyways to keep your gas tank from dragging.Feed said:after notching the frame the driveshaft now hits the rear gas tank cross member. is my pinion angle way off or do i have to notch the crossmember? i haven't really seen pics or read much about doing this.....
bagged01extcab said:Even with raising the gas tank an 1", you will still have to notch the crossmember to lay out. If you don't raise the tank, you will have to almost completly cut out the center of the crossmember to lay out, and even then, the driveshaft will hit the crossmember, if the back is all the way down and the front is up very much!
I hope that helps!
Don't even know what that is, haven't seen it on older trucks.Feed said:thanks...wish i would've known before i put the gas tank and axle back in...
what about the black box that is mounted inbetween the two gas tank cross members above the drive shaft? where is a good place to relocate that? and wtf is it?
Nice pic, thanks .. I guess it isn't a big deal for you to take a picture of your gas tank, since you can raise your bed at any time :rocking:Stealthdump said:The black box is your charcoal canister that catches gas vapors. I think they relocated it from in front of the gas tank to high center behind the cab. It's logical to have this box higher than the fuel level.
Here's a pic of my '04
