Wonder if you could just take a dodge tank, spin it 180, and mount it on the other side, opposite the existing tank? Would have to fab brackets....
Would also need a fuel line valve, to provide fuel to the rail from whatever tank is currently selected, having a single control deal with both which fuel pump gets power, and valve switching duties would be ideal. Although, two separate switches would make for another layer of security..... I suppose.
I don't know where the aux diesel tank goes, that's why I asked
And remember I have a carb, so no rail
I've figured out how to manage two separate tanks, but not where to put the tanks and which tanks!
I don't know if my exhaust would be in the way on the other side or not. I'd have to check. I'm not scared to custom fab brackets.

I know it will add more weight and lower MPGs, but if we aren't towing we don't have to fill the aux tank.
As far as tow capacity goes, I'm not concerned as I will be swapping axles in the next year or so and I'm staying within 1000lbs of factory rating for towing anyways, and after axle swap I'll have suspension better than a 1 ton, so tow ratings aren't a concern. Good point though.

On the list for future mods! And that is serious, Cummins I6 is the candidate. I'll be posting the future plans for the truck sometime here on DF in the order I want to do them.

I have a toolbox in the bed, and need to be able to remove the tool box fast, and having a tank in the bed would prevent me from using that space. When towing I get roughly 100 at the most Id guess. I just like the extra range when we are doing hay and time is precious.

I'd read about that and if it were under the bed I'd consider it, but I want it under the bed.
So thanks guys, I hope you don't think I'm trying to refute you all, I'm not, just want more ideas
