Turbo74 pinto & rlyons124 what year trucks do you have? IMO that will greatly deterime what DIY conversion is best for you.
No matter what year you have if at all possible I would recommend a checkvalve system. Make sure you keep the fuels seperate(don't share stock filter or stock pump) & if your front tank it steel don't use it for veg. Mild steel will cause poly formation. I agree that the Airdog is not the best option. Up until Vo Designs come out with their new pump the Fass was the best option. Because there is no history on Leons new pump I won't recommend or say anything against it. I will say Leon has alot of good products & great customer service so I would not be concerned in trying it. Plus it comes with a 5 year warranty. If you want a pump with some history get the Fass HPFP which comes with a 4 year warranty. The Fass does come with it problems which are well documented. If I had to roll the dice I would try Leons pump. Stay away from any copper in your conversion. Brass is not the best option either but many are using it. They are both poly makers with copper being #1 worst.
As far as fuel line I would go with Aircraft grade aluminum & do a TIH to heat your fuel lines. Make sure you have a fuel pressure or vaccum gauge & plumb it so it will read VO & D2 pressure. You also should have a VO temp gauge. These 2 gauges are vital IMO. You need a good heated pickup for your tank & I suggest a Hotfox pick up. Mine works very well.
I have probably forgot alot of stuff.
