After reading this forum for years I have finally got my van and truck mount. I bought a 2005 gmc 2500 van and A rage truck mount with low hours that I need to transfer to my van. The Rage is currently in a ford mini van so I assume all I need is the correct fuel line kit that installs in the filler neck for my 2005 gmc 2500. posting a link to what I think I need please let me know if I'm correct.https://www.this company does not support TMF.com/zen/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=68&products_id=3409 Also let me know if you know a place that I could pick up one cheaper. Also have a couple of other questions I started insulating the walls and ceiling of the van with foam insulation should I continue that or just rip it out? It also has a rubber mat on floor should I leave it in and install on top or remove it? Thanks for any help I receive and thanks for the inspiration for me to start my new career.

Here's what I do before installing a TM in my vans. Remove the rubber insulated floor mat and put it aside for now. Purchase a sheet or two of 3/4" pressure treated plywood, and a roll of 40 lb. roofing felt. Use the felt for making a pattern for the floor. Take that pattern and use a saber saw to cut the plywood to fit the floor around the wheel wells and such. Use stainless steel screws long enough to penetrate through the floor and screw the plywood and pattern to the van floor. Reinstall the original van floor mat to the floor. Install the machine.

This will add protection to the floor, and it increases the integrity of the van floor.

That rubber floor mat is the death of so many van bodies once a TM is put in. Traps moisture up against the frame and rusts it out super-quick. We recommend our customers yank them out, and there's a Rhino-liner nearby we recommend for them before we do any installs.
