Try an auto wrecker.

I tried that. They are rusted worse than mine.


Is it rusted through? If not you can have yours steamed cleaned then coated, that will make it last a few more years. Or you could have one made for your space underneath the rig.

Yeah, it's rusted through. I think having one made is what Mitsubishi had in mind when they quoted me $1400.


Have you gone to a frabracator to get his price? You could also try the wrecking yards hotline, they might be able to locate one that is in good shape out of state. If it looks hopeless. You could have yours brazed up then internally coated, it's a lot of work but not 1400 bucks worth.

yeah, I've done the wrecking yard thing and there isn't enough steel left to braze to. I'll sell the truck as parts. It was my daily driver when the tank started leaking. It's in good condition, just a bad gas tank. thanks


Well you could convert it to propane fired and do away with gasoline.
