Replacing 2 tanks with one

I want to know if any of you have ever done or know of someone who has done this;
Remove both small fuel tanks and replace it with a large single tank. I was thinking of using a Titan tank for a 99 and making it fit. But I just want to know if there is any better solutions before I attempt this.
Thanks

Remove both tanks and replace the rear tank with a 38 gallon replacement from rock auto or elsewhere. Then use the location of the side tank to mount your electric fuel pump conversion pump and filter bases!

Will the spare still fit or does it get carried somewhere else?

Denton, TX

I envy those that know exactly which modification to make and in the most logical of sequences. But not enough to trade for my meanderings and misfires.

It will fit but it will be 6 or so inches lower. And u will have to extend everything down.

Well, my idea is to take a 60 gallon Titian tank from a 99 model and retrofit it, eliminating the dual tanks altogether. Anybody ever done this before?

I've heard of running a stock sd tank in place of the saddle tank, but nothing much as of the rear, good luck either way, can't wait to see how this lines up Kause I wanna larger fuel capacity without the dual tanks, maybe switch out the tank selector for a power rear window option

I have larger tanks in mine, a 40 in front and a 45 in the rear. Could make it a single tank by removing one and capping the lines but I like having a 85 gallon internal capacity. The tanks are Transferflow, only downside is loosing the mount for the spare.

Transferflow

I actually helped the original owner install them back in the mid 90's. They also have a nice high flow filler that can take the big pumps and hardly foams up. Not sure if they still make tanks for the OBS, you may have to look for used ones.
