.... produced this short list. An M series tank in decent condition isn't that hard to find... out west of course. Hope this helps.

Like many M-series trucks my tank was total swiss cheese:

Waaaay to expensive to repair!

So I grabbed one of these:

I'm not a fan of fuel traveling through the passenger compartment so I put it
under the bed where the spare tire would go. The fuel cap comes out the rear
passenger fender. Slight modification to the fuel spouts was required to get
everything over the frame and under the bed but it was a surprisingly
good/affordable solution.
