We used a 15 gallon cell from summit with an electric pump with AN10 lines to the regulator. It was a summit brand. We made two inch spacers out of 1'' square tubing to put it up off of the bed floor. I did not want to cut a hole in the bed for the sump part of the fuel cell.

SUM-CSUM293215SB is the part number, this is a kit with the mounting straps and yes it will work with a mechanical pump. This cell has a return inlet, sending unit 90ohms,vent outlet and two -8 outlets for fuel. You may not need this specific cell with all the inlets/outlets and sending unit. I needed but look at the others they have.

I've used aluminum tanks and mounted them back where the spare tire goes. Minimum fuel line size for pressure is # 8 with a #6 return. Your restictions are in the fittings. Your flow is controlled by the smallest orfice in the system. You can run steel lines mounted preferably on the inside of the frame and then use the aircraft flex from the frame to the engine and tank. If you run the braided aircraft lines all the way up be sure it can not get snagged.
