    Pretty sure the 92 up trucks all had stainless lines, all of mine have been. If the connections are the same could be worth the effort to get a set from a salvage yard. I sourced a set for my 85 F350 when I changed it over to fuel injection. The yard let me have them, but I pulled them and it wasn't pleasant.

    yeah pulling fuel lines of a junkyard truck sounds like fun, lol. The rubber hose doesn't sound like a good idea. I just wish Napa or somewhere carried replacement hard plastic hoses like the OEM ones...

    Sounds like I've found rust free doors and front clip for Wimpy. If everything works out I should be snagging them up this Wednesday. I've been driving the truck quite a bit this summer...especially since the A/C crapped out on my bird a couple weeks ago.
