youd be surprised...I sell ford parts for a living and you wouldn't believe some of the stuff that goes on back order and for how long...the older edges have issues with fuel tank leaks and have for some time now, well they are recalled and if a vehicle comes in with a leaking tank the car goes down and ford puts them in a long term rental. These particular tanks cost about 1800$ retail and are on backordered until the 3rd quarter of this year. They have been recalled since around this time last year.
