Long bed tank in a short bed

How hard is it to put a long bed fuel tank in a short bed truck? What kind of crap needs done? I have the tank, pickup, sending unit, straps, everything except the filler neck.

Curious about this as well. My truck already tilts a bit with the full 25 gallon tank. So I can only imagine how bad it would be with a bigger tank.

Probably not that much worse. Long beds don't seem to lean any more than a short bed. Every SD on the road has that lean though.

Cause that would take time and energy and the possibility of it not working then having to put my regular tank back in. Thats why im askin about it first.

Measure it and see if its too long. I though they would run into the transfer case. Then measure to see if the straps are the same distance apart and the filler neck is in the same place in relation to the straps.

IIRC it was looked into, and the problem was the filler necks would not lign up correctly.
