Fuel Tank And Receiver Hitch On A 1972 Chevy Suburban - Tank And A Hitch
ECE Adds Fuel And Towing To A Classic Rig
One of the big drawbacks of most classic vehicles is the limited fuel tank capacity - and the early Suburbans are no exception. With a tank size of only 18 gallons, they are limited to a couple hundred miles or less between fuel stops. Now, this may not be a big issue for the cruise-night guys, but it's a real pain for anyone taking that long road trip.
The guys at Early Classic Enterprises have come up with a viable solution to this dilemma with their new 27-gallon Suburban tank. Constructed using 14-gauge stainless steel, these beauties feature an inner baffle chamber design to restrict fuel sloshing. Optional features include an in-tank electric fuel pump for those truck owners running a fuel-injected engine
Many truck and Suburban owners use their rigs to tow, and Early Classic also manufactures a line of receiver hitches that hide behind the factory license plate box until needed. These Class 4 hitches allow you the ability to take even more stuff along on your next road trip to the lake or swap meet.
Follow along and we'll show you what's involved in the installation of both the tank and hitch kits on a classic '72 Suburban.
