I put mine on the inboard side left frame rail. I put a GF-99 fuel filter on the cross brace behind the gas tank. I kept the fuel filter in the right wheelwell in case of a pump catastrophic failure.

I got rid of that long rubber hose from the top of the tank to the first 5/16' line, by using a 5/16" cunifer line bent to conform to tank. Photos show what I did. Pump I used could not be heard in cabin as I used thick (1/2" rubber grommets to mount it.

I put mine on the rail just below and behind the tank. I'd guess this is were the vast majority are located.

I do mine like Craig behind the tank.
I like Al's idea for getting rid of the long rubber hose and will probably do that next time.

You have to considered I did a complete fuel line replacement on my van, so I could plan out each line and component to best position the items in a new installation.

A little more different task to do a simple and fast installation with existing lines and not removing tank.
