I drove over scrap metal road debris at night. It bounced up and slashed a 2 foot gash in the soft cell fuel tank, which protrudes at least 3 inches below the chassis frame. Tank was nearly full and all fuel leaked out. Luckily, there was no fire. Vehicle was rendered inoperable and had to be towed to dealer for repairs. I believe this is a bad design to have a soft cell fuel tank exposed as it is on this truck. There should be some sort of metal frame or box around the fuel tank to prevent punture from road debris. There is nothing to prevent this from happening again and possibly causing a fire.

Absence of baffle in fuel tank allows gas to slam forward and back in tank, subjecting connections to stress and potential failure and fire hazard.
