Just a question for anyone who might have some insight.    I am currently building a 69 C-10 (using a 72 C-10 frame and coil spring set up). Although I am open to changing the rear suspension as thus far I have not upgraded the springs etc..    I am swapping in a 2002 6.0 LS motor which should have the fuel pump in the tank.  I would like to also install a Reese hitch under the back to tow a small flatbed trailer(mostly for hauling parts).   I currently have installed on the frame the accessory springs to assist if the load gets too heavy.  So back to the question.  who supplies a suitable tank?   I have heard of cutting a suburban rear mount and using the original sending unit.  will the hitch still fit?  I would also like to fab a side mounted or a inside the bedside mounted fuel door.  I'm not big on the fuel door in the bed floor.  I know this is a lot of stuff to take in but I'm looking for the best route to take.  

Thanks  Chad
