I have two decent 16 gallon tanks and senders (senders probably need some cleaning & new filter socks) I just pulled to swap to EFI style tanks, I would let them go for cheap. They do look kinda nasty on the outside but inside they are still shinny and clean, a coat of paint would do them wonders. I have a new in box (20 year old) 3 port valve I never installed, and the factory switch. I think I have the chassis harness too because the new fuel pump wiring for the 6 port valve will be different. Really, I have everything except the mounting straps.

I'm not sure what shipping would cost. I too live in a small town & there is no UPS/FedEx stores

You see id do the suburban tank but I have a utility bed on the truck so that’s not an option. But the passenger side only tank is gonna take getting used to and as it being a work truck I’d like to have to get fuel the least amount possible.

Here’s some photos since I don’t think I’ve ever shown this truck on here.

Have you considered just doing a big transfer tank in the bed?

pay more for a manual valve, mount it somewhere good,threead in fuel rated fittings or something and barb on hose
install fuel return senders and get a fuel return pump, run a return line
then just swtich the gauge with the other guys hack or whatever, just flipping which ground is being read
then dont have a crusty old bypassed one on the frame in years when it dies on you because the solenoid 1 wire ones wear faster and sometimes dont fully switch
