Bronco tank

Been thinking of putting one of these in my truck for the added capacity and use as a veggie tank. For those who have done it what did you do to increase the pickup length for the fuel lines?

If u go on jimdzl.com he has a write up on it. i put one in my truck. i modded the stock sending unit to fit the bronco tank and then extended the pickup about 1.5" off the bottom of the tank, (for got how much) and then rebent the float rod from a coat hanger. the float isnt all that acuret on mine bc I will drive for a week it wil read full and the next week it will work in the normal range and then i can go well over 150 miles on E

the writ up on his site is for a 38 gallon replacement tank. it is not a Bronco tank. it was for late 80s f350s. the Bronco tank i belive will need filler tube modifications and is smaller then the 38 gallon replacement as it is 32 gallons

I'm guessin I'm just gonna have to spot for the tank and brackets and get dirty... How bad do they hang down below the bed? My truck sees its fair share of off road duty.
