Normally, when one lives by The Jeffersons' motto of movin' on up, there won't be any arguments. However, if we're talking about a gas tank in a classic truck and its up-front easy livin' location, suddenly living the high life doesn't sound so great. As it turns out, sittin' on top of a Molotov cocktail mounted in your classic truck's cab isn't exactly a peaceful feeling. For that reason, the safe money is on yanking that gas tank out of the cab and installing a No Limit Engineering aluminum gas tank out back.
Moving the gas tank out of your '67-72 Chevy truck's cab and mounting a No Limit tank makes more sense than the rising gas prices (no pun intended). For one, the relocated tank handles the safety factor. Although the odds are rather slim, there is a chance of serious injury due to a gas fire or explosion if you get T-boned and the tank goes up in flames. With the tank out back, it gives you a much greater distance from a potential accident and a better overall state of mind when you're driving down the road trying to steer clear of Ricky Racer bobbing in and out of traffic. A second benefit is that with the gas tank removed, you get some much needed cargo space in the cab, where you could install a stereo system, reclining seat, cooler, or anything you want, for that matter. A third is that you can shave off that ugly filler neck killing the flowing lines of the truck, and that's just a couple of bullet points.
No Limit Engineering in San Bernandino, California, has designed their tanks for an exact fit and easy installation. The tanks are constructed from .090-gauge aluminum and are welded in the No Limit shop to ensure quality. They are also fully baffled to prevent slosh and are made to fit underneath the bed between the frame-rails behind the rear axle. All tanks come with mount straps, hardware, output fittings, a vent kit filler option, and instructions. Not to mention they look way cool. No Limit also gives you the option to have your filler at the top of the tank or to the side if you want to make a custom fuel door.
Ohhhh, shiny-feast your eyes...

The first step is to remove...
The first step is to remove the factory gas tank from the cab, but in order to get to the tank, the seat must be removed. To get the seat out, we removed the four bolts that hold it to the cab floor.
