Default 1999 Ranger Fuel Filler Flareside 4.0l Super Cab

Hello everybody. The guys in Ford Truck Enthusiasts referred me here for my ranger, I have a 1999 Ford Ranger that was vandalized after I left for Iraq in september of 2010 and I need to replace the fuel filler pipe because if I try to put gas in it, after maybe a 1/10th of a second it clicks the pump off and you can see a bunch of bubbles at the top of the pipe. Do you think the shi*head kids put something other than syrup in the pipe?

It could be the vent hose. May have been clogged, but in my work I have seen some Aholes fill the filler pipe with expanding insulation foam. If you have to replace the filler neck, ebay it. I have seen brand new ones go for around 50.00 shipped

Are they specific for the flareside vs the styleside?

I've swapped beds from a fleetside to a flareside on a buddies fx4 and we didnt need a different filler neck, so you might be able to use the fleetside neck with a little finesse.

Could always get one for the styleside and just cut down the filler end to fit if it's long.

Have you checked LMctruck.com or even rockauto.com

Search car-part.com to search salvage yards in your area.

Yes I did search LMC & Rock Auto, neither one had it. I shop there often because of my 84 F-250 6.9 Diesel.
