Front Fuel Tank

So went outside today to find that I had Diesel all over my driveway, I guess I some how punched a hole in my front fuel tank. Called the local Ford dealer and they want $500 for a new tank and 10 -14 days till it arrives. I have looked on line and see a few different aftermarket direct replacements, just want to know if any one of them is better than the other if any one knows ?

Thanks for the help every one !!!!

LMC Truck has the front tank.

You can also get it from an auto parts store. O'Reilly Auto Parts showed the front tank when I was looking at getting my rear tank from them.

If your in the rust belt, I would try to find a plastic one.

I like my Transferflo tank, front one is 40ga. Only downside is the dent in my wallet when it comes time to fill up.

An SD 99-04 plastic midships tank will fit perfectly, but you have to convert to electric fuel i think???

If it fits, it should just be a matter of hooking it up. The fuel pump is located outside the tank on a SD.

i would think as long as you hook it up to the pollack correclty your stock pump would work just fine.
