Stack with a bed tank

I have always wanted duel stacks in my truck but with my in bed fuel tank it is just not a reality. I have however figured out that if I push the tank all the way to one side or the other it will give me about 5 to 5 1/2 inches to play with. That would be enough for a single stack right?

I want it on the drivers side but that may not work. Any thoughts

I would look into either a custom tank or modifying your existing tank with concave corners.

Here's an idea. You could do like this fellow did and put your tool box lengthwise in the bed, move your fuel tank back to where your tool box is now, and be able to run duals.



Thoughts?

Huh ok. Then as you said before pushing the tank to one side all the way seems to be your best/only option.

Just wondering....would putting a fuel tank next to the stack be safe? Heat wise i mean

I think it would be OK. I might put a heat shield on just in case though.
