Replacement gas tank suggestions

I am going to replace my gas tank, which many of the suppliers have available. Any suggestions as to which one carries the best quality and OEM standards?
Thanks.
Richard

I don't have enough info to answer the question but as people are answering ... I'm curious to here tank thoughts but also any thoughts on using (or have installed) a fuel cell instead? (I think that's the right term)

I agree with the drain plug suggestion. If you should need to drain your tank, it's a nice feature. As for a supplier, I bought mine from Missouri Mustang, but I get the impression they are all produced by the same manufacturer and distributed by most parts suppliers.

A drain plug is a must, in my opinion. I think Perk is right, most all repo tanks are made by the same folks. They are easy to install and look very nice.

I also have another recommendation. For our tank, we immediately clear coated after installation. The tank is much easier to clean grease, road dust, etc off of tank. It makes the tank alittle more shiney than new, but I don't think it will show it's age in the long run. Just my opinion.
