f-350 want to install cab and chassis fuel tank.

Has anyone install a cab and chassis fuel yank in there ride? I have a 2000 f-350 and was wanting to put a rear fuel tank in it. I am going to get rid of the mid-ship. I like the weight out back for ballast for my snow plows..

No can dookie with a C&C tank. The distance between the rear axle and the rear bumper is too short to fit the tank. I measured them before I built my truck. I really wanted the 50 gallon tank. They are just too big to fit without loosing your hitch and rear bumper.

You alternative is to run a Diesel Excursion tank. I am running this and it works great. I can go well over 600 miles on a single tank.

This does require removing the Xbrace behind the axle(spare tire and mounting) and adding in new crossmembers and rear support brace. Your hitch will become more of a crossmember than a hitch.

Oh, the fuel filler is also an issue. Mine is inside the bed behind the taillight area. Don't forget to get the skidplate and sending unit with the tank.

Good luck.
