40 gallon tank?

I have a 05 6.0 crewcab shortbed with the 26-28? gallon tank... is there any way to grab a 40 gallon tank from a long bed and make it work? or will the fill tube be in the wrong place? thanks for any help!

Do 8fts have 40gal tanks?? For my truck, reg cab long box, the specs say 38gal but even on red on the gauge it will only eat 32-33, not sure on your question..i would imagine it might fit. another option is to get a bed storage tank and im pretty sure theres a kit to splice it into your factory tank giving you 100+ gallons or more to the engine

My 99 f250 SB only holds like 25 or so. I need to run it down to the low fuel light and fuel it and see for sure.

Do the Harpoon mod. I can get over 32 gallons in my crew cab shortbed.

I got a 31gal off a '08 diesel if you find that the 38 won't fit. I'm in Hampton, VA.

Make sure it applies to your year vehicle, though, or continue to search if different for yours.
