Yes two stock tanks = about 32 to 34gal. Bronco + front stock tank = about 48gal. So you gain about 14 to 16 gallons

I like this idea! Now I am interested. What year bronco tank? Also, what about the spare tire?? This is whole lot cheaper than the transferflow.

Don't know if they still make them, but I helped my grandfather install a 40 and 45ga Transferflo tank on his 95 a few years back.
