1957 1/2 Ton Small Window Truck - Getting' Tanked Photo Gallery
Once Jack researched and found an OEM-style aftermarket tank that’d fit his needs the next step was a few simple chassis mods to get it to fit. To make room for the tank the rear cross members needed to be relocated. Here you can see that he upper shock mount cross member was removed and relocated forward of the axle rather than behind the axle. He also turned the member around backwards and bolted it to the top frame flange. The cross member was then split open at the ends and widened to fit flush to the lower framerail flange.
