    I'm using a Mustang tank. Some bring the filler out in the bed which I dislike. I ended up using the original filler ad some steel tubing and brought it out in the bed support above the bumper. There's some good info on the Ford Truck Enthusiasts site. A good group of good threads. Hope this helps.
  4. I used a gas tank from a Bronco 2. Not sure of the year, but I know it had an electric fuel pump which I didn't use. fit perfect between the frame rail.

    If you use a Cougar gas tank, same as Mustang , but filler goes out Driver side.
