OK, so if you’ve been following this thread on T4R, you know a bunch of us 3rd gen 4Runner guys are relocating our fuel tanks from the factory location and replacing them with f150 auxiliary tanks in the rear, where the factory spare tire mount normally resides. While there is still development work occurring in regard to wiring & plumbing, I’ve designed these weld-on fuel tank mounts to facilitate the actual physical installation of the tank itself.
These were designed to tuck the tank up in between the frame rails where it would protected and position the tank to the left a bit for extra exhaust pipe clearance at the right front corner of the tank. For those of you with a 1″ body lift, you simply need to cut out the spare tire crossmember and weld the mounts to the truck. Those without a body lift will need to clearance the rib below the floor as needed to clear the top of the tank (hey – you’ve already cut the spare tire crossmember out, why stop now?) 😉
Interested? here’s how you get one for yourself – hit the Buy Now button below and pay for your mounts. Simple enough, no?

Fuel Tank Lift – 1st gen Tacoma
Well, after I got my 2003 Tacoma, I noticed that the fuel tank hangs lower than it needs to (so I fixed it.)
This fuel tank lift kit isn’t the easiest thing to install out of my product line (getting the existing tank crossmember out of the frame is tedious!) but it raises the tank 2″ so it no longer hangs below the frame.
The kit is for Xtra cab models (although it may work with some sheet metal modification at the bottom of the back of the cab on double cab models; I haven’t verified.) It requires removing the bed and notching the bed supports (I include weld-in notch plates for this), and if your Tacoma has the EVAP above the tank like mine does, an additional EVAP lift kit will be needed (see the drop-down menu below)
