Default Gas tank getting sucked in

I am working on a 2001 K2500 with the 6.0L and it came in not running. I pulled the fuel tank since it was sucked in and I replaced the fuel pump and purge solenoid with the updated relocation for the vent. I also replaced the fuel filter and gas cap. Is there anything else I should replace to avoid the gas tank being sucked in again.

It would be a blocked vent or gas cap that caused the tank to collapse in the first place.
Seems you have covered those bases.

the relocated vent valve would take care of it i would think, if that was stuck shut that might happen
