    use the tank u have ,most of them came either way inside or under the truck. if u look under it u will probably see where it would mount .
     
  2. early Mustang tank works great behind rear axle, cheap too.

    x2 on Tanks Inc., whether stock in stock location or wanting a different tank somewhere else. Excellent product, fair pricing, fast ship. I was totally impressed with the tank I bought. That's all they do (gas tanks), so they know their stuff.
     
  4. Both of my old Dodges have the stock tanks in the cab. No leaks or odor, so they stay right where they are.
     
  5. I just ordered a 1970 Mustang tank for my 57 f100. I gotta move the rear crossmember back about 6" and it will fit. Rockauto.com has the tank and sending unit, shipped it was about $160. If you search google there are a few threads about doing this.

    I have a 57' F100 also and was thinking about doing the same as worm0163. I could careless about the gas being behind my seat except that it takes up an extra 6 inches of cab space. It sure would be nice to have a little more leg room!

    X2 - They have stainless and poly - rust free!

    Don't see a stock '49 Ford truck unit though....

    And for those of you who made this a Ralph Nader thread - the OP never said why they want to move the tank.....

    :rolleyes:
     
  8. Mine, from Tanks. My truck came as a kit, no stock tank to be found.

    Great ideas. I was thinking of moving the tank to give myself more room inside the cab.
    Others had told me to get it out of the cab because it wasn't safe.
    Both sides have a compelling edge to them.
    I want to put buckets in with shoulder belt attached so my girls are safe when we go for a ride. No fuss no muss no welding...
