I'll get the exact dimensions for you today when I go to work, the tank has been hanging out there.

It is baffled to keep the sloshing down, but if I had it do to over again I would have sloped to bottom of the tank all towards the middle and built a bowl type to guarantee the fuel stays in the pickup.

The fittings in installed are brass, they are threaded into bulkhead fittings the welder build into the tank, so you could easily replace them with stainless or anything else you wanted.

There is a filler port in the side of the tank as I had intended to use the factory rear fuel door and a marine type filler neck.

One of my key design ideas was to keep the whole system very clean and stealthy.

I'll get you the dimensions today, any more questions feel free to hit me back.

sorry it took me an extra day to get you the measurements.

It's 31" wide 25" long and 12" tall

Feel free to make offers... it's been taking up space for too long and I've got no use for it

Thanks for the info. I will have to check & see if it will fit under the my truck. Does it have mounting tabs?

Where will it be shipping from? Your add indicates Portsmouth NH but your profile shows Cape Neddick ME. Is that in Maine? I live in Nova Scotia so any problem shipping across the border? Before I could make you an offer I would have to see what shipping costs would be.

Do you have the fuel gauge that matches the sending unit you could include?

I don't want to get your hopes up too much cause I expect that shipping costs would force me to offer you a price you would not be willing to accept.

Sorry I'm just getting to responding...

It does not have mounting tabs... the welder highly recommended against them and said when it came time to install it to have some straps made/installed. He promised me any sort of "tabs" welded to the aluminum would not hold up for very long.

Shipping would be from Portsmouth, NH, it's only about 10 miles South of Cape Neddick, Maine, where my profile says I am.

No fuel gauge for the Isspro, you can use any gauge you want as long as it is the correct impedance. I was planning a full set of auto meters for my veg. setup.

Let me know if you are still interested and I will look into getting some shipping quotes for you.
