fuel tank upgrade

I'm tired of dealing with this fuel tank selecting crap. I've decided to run one 30 gal tank, but i don't want it to be the rear tank like gnxtc2 did. Because of how low the spare sits. I seen they sell 30 gal front tanks but it also says under 8500gvwr and my truck is above 8500gvwr. would this make a difference? I have not seen anything about this on her yet. I keep having troubles selecting different tanks and filling up the rear tank. i jack up my rear left tire overtime i fill it haha. and i have replaced all the parts so i'm giving up on trying to fix that and going to slap a 30 gal tank on the front and remove the rear tank. any knowledge on the gvwr ?

Re: fuel tank upgrade

The under 8500 is the light duty F250 that looks like the F150 of that era.

I looked into these tanks before I got a hold of the SD tank I used.

My Project Log

According to the fuel pump that I removed It's out of 01 to 04 F250 with a approximately 38 gallon tank. It took some mods to make it work but I got the tank for 50 bucks.
