Was looking at my truck from a distance and something did not look right underneath. When I got up close and knelt down to my horror my gas tank was hanging only by the rear strap.
The front strap had rusted out where it bolts to the frame. The tank was way out of level, leaning to the front. I do not know how long it was hanging this way because you could not see it when standing near the truck. The holes in the bed drain right on top of this strap, the rear one was in good shape. I ordered a set of straps from Amazon and replaced it today. As shown in this pic of my hitch I replaced last year, the corrosive effects of salt water can be devastating on steel.
