Fuel Tank Replacement

Some jerkwad drilled a hole in my gas tank and cut the fuel inlet line on my 05 NISMO CC. I'm looking for a replacement tank since a repair, even a plastic weld, will never be the same as untouched plastic. What other tanks will be a direct replacement?
From what I've been reading the following should bolt right up:
05-09 Frontier/ CC/KC, long and sort bed
05-08 Pathfinder
05-09 Xterra

Is this correct or is there something else I'm missing?

Any aftermarket tanks available in the US that will increase my volume?

Would this tank work?
NISSAN PATHFINDER/FRONTIER/XTERRA 21 GALLON FUEL TANK:eBay Motors (item 380112049490 end time Jul-18-09 08:18:27 PDT)

Thanks for the help.

As long as the used tank is in good condition then it should work. You can even do the swap yourself.

The only extended range tanks are in AUS and other foreign nations.

There is a thread on here thou when it was proposed that a Titan tank may fit. I remember doing a lot of research on that thread but if you search for it, you should be able to find it. I can't say it will work or not but you may want to continue the research and you may find that it could work and be the first in the US with a Titan tank.

all you need to do is switch out you stock pump and sending unit. Where are you located?

Few people understand the psychology of dealing with a highway traffic cop. Your normal speeder will panic and immediately pull over to the side. This is wrong. It arouses contempt in the cop-heart. Make the bastard chase you. He will follow!

The tanks are plastic, so there isn't too much that can go wrong with them. I had a hole in mine as well, and now I have an 05 Xterra tank in there. dropped my fuel pump in and slapped it up there no problems. I gotta say, these are the easiest tanks to replace I have ever worked on. Oh - and I had plugged my tank for awhile prior to replacement.
