Fuel Tank Replacement Straps At An Affordable Price
Don Smith, Smith Repair, Fredericksburg, Iowa 50630 (ph 563 379-6536; don@donsoil.com): “For years farmers with Freightliner semi tractors told me they needed fuel tank straps that wouldn’t rust out. We’re excited to announce that we now have replacement straps at an affordable price.
  “The original straps are made from 12-ga. mild steel. With more aggressive ice melt chemicals now in wide use, coupled with fairings that cover the fuel tanks to improve aerodynamics, these steel straps quickly rust away.
  “Our tank straps are made from 16-ga. 304 stainless steel so they won’t corrode.
  “Freightliner doesn’t sell the T-bolt fasteners separately so when we sell a set of straps we require your original T-bolts in exchange, or there is an additional charge for the bolts.
  “We currently make fuel tank straps only for Freightliner FLD120 and newer classic model trucks. However, with dimension information and T-bolt or specialized hardware available, we can also fabricate them for Peterbilt, Kenworth and other brands. The price will be in the $500 per strap range.”
