Off topic a bit but I would also appreciate more pictures of your exhaust routing over the rear axle and past the fuel tank as I am going to have similar space constraints.

That's a cap from an XJ6 - any year up to 87. I found mine on Craigslist for $25 and had a locksmith cut a key. You can find them on Ebay as well. I used a set of tail pipes I found on Amazon, Flowmaster 15802 Prebend Tailpipes - 2.50 in.

I opted for a single exhaust to make the routing easier, and mounted the tank in front of the axle with a 47-ish side fill over the running boards.

bigmikes50chevy, thanks but based on the picture that shows your rear spring shackle I believe you have a 3100 which has a significantly different frame spacing in the area where you have your tank.

However I am interested in your filler rounting as I plan to do something similar. Do you have any concerns with the filler being the widest part of the truck? I was thinking I may want to route mine further back to have the neck extension/cap inside the fender width profile.

Driver side mirror is probably the widest point.

If anyone can't back out of the garage without tearing off that filler, he shouldn't be driving at all.

The filler being on the passenger side makes the combination of the driver's side mirror and the filler making the truck that much wider.

Not that I expect my truck to be in one but I recall a particlar parking garage ramp that was like a curved trough, the inside of the curve had a lot of evidence of people rubbing their vehicle sides on that concrete wall.

I’ve never had a problem with hitting the filler neck. I know it’s there.
