I plan on keeping my stock gas tank and relocating it. After I finish my rear bag set up I am going to shave the entire bed, meaning weld sheet metal over the top so it it totally closed. I am then going to make crossmembers (attached to the frame) that go through the bed foor to hold my tank and gas tank. That way If I need to work on them I can pull the bed off and they will be attached to the frame of the truck and be independant of the bed. This would mean I have to cut a hole in my bed floor for my gas tank and air tank. I was thinking about mounting the gas tank on a crossmember over the notch so I dont have to cut a 3rd hole and I can just cut one for the air tank and use the one for the notch for the gas tank. I need to know the demensions of the stock gas tank. Will it be to long to go sideways between my wheel wells? Will it be to tall to sit ontop of my 8in frame notches and not go past the top of the bed?
