Excursion fuel tank in a truck

I am wondering about the feasibility of putting a fuel tank from an Excursion in my truck as an aux tank. Ever been done? I can't find it if it has.

Re: Excursion fuel tank in a truck

The excursion tank is in the back, above the diff, correct?

It's probably nearly the same as the tanks in the cab-chassis models. Their tank's are located between the frame rails, above (and slightly behind) the rear diff, right at the tail-end of the frame.

I don't see why it wouldn't be possible...never actually compared the two though.

Re: Excursion fuel tank in a truck

On the Excursion there is no part of the tank that is directly above the rear axle. To use one on a pickup I believe there's a crossmember you need to move.

Re: Excursion fuel tank in a truck

The x-brace for the spare would have to come out I'm sure. Just trying to figure out if the bed will have to come off. I got custom wood cabinets under a camper shell. That would be a HUGE hassle.

You'll need the tank skid plate also because the tank is strapped to it and the skid plate is bolted to the frame. May be easier to get that one Titan makes.

Re: Excursion fuel tank in a truck

You will also need an Excursion hitch/receiver. The truck hitch is in the way.

That's my plan. Just wondering if I could do both. I'm planning for long dist off road travel.

Re: Excursion fuel tank in a truck

If you put in the Excursion tank the after axle Titan tank will not fit obviously but you could get Titans replacement tank and swap out your smaller capacity OEM tank. Lot of work and expense, why not just get a cheap in bed tank?

Re: Excursion fuel tank in a truck

Don't want an in bed tank. I got a short bed, just enough room under the camper shell to sleep. Got the shell done up for camping. There is a removable sleeping platform for day to day use, but no room for a tank. The storage is built in and is difficult to remove and replace. I just leave it in.

Re: Excursion fuel tank in a truck

I just replaced my main tank with a Transfer Flow unit. Days work by a talented fabricator/mechanic who'd never done one before. I'm interested in this thread as I'm building my truck for the same purpose. I like the idea of the Excursion tank mod.
