Question Gas tank for 1996 Ford Ranger XL 4 Cyl 2.3L

Hi, I have a small crack in my gas tank. I tried to patch it, but someone told me that it is impossible to patch a plastic gas tank. Well I tried many things and none of them lasted once I put gas in the tank.. My point is I can not find a gas tank, plastic or steel, online anywhere for my 1996 Ford Ranger XL 4 Cyl 2.3L. I have found many for 1984-1988 and for 6 cylinders but not for my truck. Does anyone know where I can get a new gas tank for my truck. I don't care if it is plastic or steel/metal, whatever. My brother is going to install it for me so I don't have to pay someone... Please help!!!!!

Everything is pretty much stock, except little things like the CD player, stick shift, gas, brake, and clutch pedals. Just a plain reliable Ford that I love very much....

Can you place a fuel tank from any vehicle with the same size opening for the fuel pump/gauge sending unit assembly unit, secure it in the bed, attach filler hose and vapor emission line to be operational. The Dorman fuel lines can be extended with the special tool from Dorman.
