No leaky fuel tank in? Where is your sense of adventure???

Love your Chief! I want one someday.

The pads are definitely a must. And the whole kill it with fire thing is overrated. Lol! Thanks for the compliment!

Thanks! It's getting closer! Too bad I forgot simple math and tacked the shock mounts 2" too close to each other. Ha! Gotta go fix that....

Wait. You're running a centered dif AMC 20 with no axle/drive shaft clearance issues with the factory fuel tank??? Or have you converted to rear tank? If so, what tank did you use?

*EDIT* Just found where you show you're running a Trail Blazer tank. Carry on.

I guess you guessed it. Are there issues with the late model DSís hitting the gas tank? I wouldnít doubt it. Iím glad to get rid of the midship tank. More room for more junk. :-)

The '80s rigs with centered difs have narrower fuel tanks so dif and drive shaft clearance isn't an issue.
