97 stock replacement fuel tanks.

Is there a company that makes OEM replacement tanks for like my 97 powerstroke? Have a cracked rear tank and need to replace. Curious if there's any company that makes bigger or sturdier tanks? I'm not having any luck finding new replacements. And had bad luck buying used in the past.

Ha Ha Yes, yes you gotta take the bed off. Not so bad, the local Ford dealership does this when they swap out the old tanks. Apparently Ford doesn't make a truck that doesn't leak fuel at some point in its life span. Im building and installing a flat bed anyway so off goes the old bed and in with two new tanks, pinion bearing and seal and new exhaust, then flatbed. Just ordered my rear tank from Summit Racing was 118.00 with shipping, handling and tax. It will be here tomorrow.

If I remember right, the dealership wanted around 500.00 per tank. What a rip-off!
