Don't know what length your bed is. Short Box=29 gals, long box=38gals.

This will help, might want to keep this handy for future reference.

^^ That sounds like it came out of an Excursion. My neighbors had one - It had a 44 gal tank.

Is yours a long box or short box? LB-38 SB-29

The tubes in the tank are real long and prevent us from filling all the way.

There is what they call a "Harpoon mod" that helps with filling these tanks. And it fills faster. Here are a couple links with pictures for the mod.
