Dual Fuel Tanks

I have a 152" wheelbase 97 Crew Cab 4WD diesel with a leaking rear fuel tank. They offer three different sizes of tanks. How can I tell which one I need to purchase. I've searched the forums, but can't find the answer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know much about the subject, but I assume it has to do with bed length. I would go with the largest that would fit.

Look under the truck to find out, but I believe you could make all 3 tanks work if you had to,just by getting the tank straps for which ever tank ya get. Somebody will be along that has "been there, done that" that can give ya better answers than me.

I have seen a mod where you put a tank from an 86 - 97 bronco (last year might be wrong). IIRC you fill up in the bed of the truck. Apparently, the single tank holds 40 gallons. Good chance my numbers are slightly off.
