fuel tank options

Mt exmod 110 with the 2.5 na has a two hole tank that has seen better days. I tried to have it refurbed locally but it's still leaking, passed the air test, not the diesel test.

What are my options? I saw the Himalaya unit but it's too much coin. Are older classic tanks the same and if so, do they use the same skid plate?

Trying weigh all my options.

Why not just get a local raditor shop to fab you a new one?

Probably cheaper and easier to buy an off the shelf item.

I've had a bad run with non rover guys working on my truck or fabbing stuff up. It's always cost me more in the long run.

I picked up a two hole proline from RN for 250 ish. Sales rep said it was galvanized or power coat which I knew to be BS at that price. I scuffed the PAINTED tank and put 2 coats of west system epoxy with barrier coat additive on it then rustoleum, same treatment for the cradle. A decent compromise methinks.
