I need to find some new parts for my crew cab. I need a fuel tank sending unit, filler hose, and gas tanks straps. BTW, the gas tank is out of a 86 ramcharger. I tried the dealer already and they wanted like $103 for the sending unit, $90 for the filler hose, and $65 each for the straps. I already tried oreillys and autozone and they don't carry them, but they can order them from dodge, but it'll only save about $20 overall. Any where ya'll can think of?

RAMMAN4, I saw the TAMUK on your signature. I am at NASK in flight school right now. Small world. Sorry I can't be of anyhelp on you quest. Let me know if you find any local junk yards with RC parts. I just got an 88.

That's cool man. I lived there in Kingsville for three years while I was working on my bachleors degree and used to frequent the base alot. Mainly for that one lady at the barber shop there, she really gets the buzz just right and close. BTW, you might still see me around Kingsville mainly on sundays as project FORD KILLER, project HEAVY HAULER and my welding shop are all there.

Well, sorry about that, bubba, I just hadda brain fart and didnt notice you had an '88, I was thinkin '78. I needed a sender for my '88 and found one for about $50 in a salvage yard. Do you need the whole thing, or just part of it? I bought the one at the salvage yard, and only used the top where the hoses go on. It came off a 89 Dakota with a V-6, I believe. Lemme know and I might have the parts you need.

I was hoping to replace the whole thing with a brand new unit. I found one in JC Whitney for like $20. Seems a bit cheap to me but I'll call them up and see if it'll work. Worse case senerio is I get the one from the dealer. I think I can get the rest of the stuff aftermarket somehow. I could probably even make my own straps if I had to.

build your own sending unit, it is easy, find a float assemble and solder it to a peice of 5/16 fuel line use a diagram of the sending unit for your measuments, then find a piece of plate steel have a machine shop or welding shop cut the circle to the deminsions you need and then drill holes in for the attatching screws and for the 5/16 steel line, then solder the line inthe base plate, put a vent tube and overflow tube in and wala there you go, ohh yes and i would seal the top where the tubes protrude with a silicone bead, test it in the bath tub let dry and put it in.
