Default Fuel Tank Headache

Hello to all my fellow ram people. I have a serious problem with dodge corporate right now. Ihave a 4 inch gash in my plastic fuel tank and all the dealerships are telling me they are on back order. BACK ORDER ! ARE U KIDDIN ME? They cant tell me when any will be available in the northeast. ( a few said up to 2 months ) My truck is a 2008 big horn 1500 with the 4.7. Checked for an aftermarket tank but i guess the truck is still too new. Gnna try a little fiberglass bandage to hold me over. arrrgh. Anyone with some inside info on this your help would sure be appreciated. Thanks to all

Don't know what to tell you that you don't already know. There are none available, and there wont be any until they complete a new production run, until then, you just have to wait. The fiberglass should tide you over, so give it a try.

Default Fuel Tank Shortage

Thanks, Kurtis - It just blows my mind that I HAVE TO WAIT MONTHS for fuel tank for such a popular and massed produced truck.

Thanks guys - located a fuel tank at a junkyard -- sorry, now they are called salvage yards - still half the price of the dealer
