Fuel Tank swap

I have read that some people swap Bronco tanks or a Spectra Premium F26E tanks into long bed trucks. Is there another tank that can replace my stock tanks in my Crew Cab short box truck? Pulling a 38' 5th wheel sucks down the fuel. Thanks.

A couple have used an sd saddle for a front tank, but not sure how well it fits on a short box

lwillson did the swap in a ccsb, here is the link...

SD Plastic Fuel tank in an OBS

You can also get a 33gal bronco tank for the rear here...

33 Gallon Steel Gas Tank

Both the SD tank and the Bronco tank will use you current sending unit with modification.

So the spectra and bronco tanks will fit under the rear of my short box then? And the SD short box under the front?

Plastic or steel? I know the steel will rust on the outside with snow and salt, but what about the inside?

I need to replace the front one already and will probably just do another stock one up front.
Side Mount Tank 17 Gallon, 42" long

And would rather just use the plastic Bronco one.
Gas Tank, 33 Gallon Plastic 90-96

I hope these are the ones that I need.

Thanks.
