Tanks are horrible to ship is why I ask. About $75 but a lot of prep work to make one not smell like a fuel tank anymore. And then I actually have to look at it firsthand. Most I’ve come across are JB welded in some fashion or another. That Polyethylene ThermoPlastic is really hard to repair properly

I had an 84 tank for my son's 80, wouldn't fit, I guess I'd have needed the cross member from the 84 and my son was too bullheaded to try and change that, I finally found an original

79-80 seem to be of their own, they will only fit 79-80. And long bed, short bed don't matter. Within given years the 20 gallon tank is the same.
Whether a 30 will fit a short bed I dunno.
I know that in 91-96 dakota a 22 will directly replace a 15 with same straps and all between them. Short bed, long bed, club cab, makes no difference.

one of the fenders I just returned from Georgia with, still has a computer mounted, somewhere between 86-90 judging by the rest of the parts that came with it that match..... not sure of a year or what engine this would have had in it... what engine does yours have? got a number from the old computer? I had an 88 D100 back around 94, 88 was 1st year for that blasted Holley TBI system, that was my truck's downfall.... I spent more money good after bad on that truck, having to do with that 1st year EFI.... I sold that truck because I was sick of all that.... Ive driven big blocks and 360 powered, 4.10 geared duallies with no OD that were better on gas than that thing was.... my 79 Ramcharger with its fulltime 4wd (and of which I have heard many stories of past owners of those trucks that couldnt get over 8 MPG from) would return 14 MPG even..... my 88 was good for an absolute best of 9 MPG in day to day running around... 12MPG, at 70MPH on a solid, steady highway blast with a heavy tailwind.
looking back the best thing we could have done for it was to retrofit it to a carbureted setup, I might still have it if Id done that.
