nope sry dude, I did know a guy that had a lifted gmc that put his inside his fenderwell, also had a buddy with a lowered Dakota that put his inside his bed, but it wasn't back by the tailgate. it was just opposite of where it would have been if it was on the outside of the bed, just makes it easier to do since u don't need a longer fill neck and vent tube and stuff.

If you can wing the money Id recommened a Michigan Metal Works fuel cell. Or you just move it where you want and figure out the mounting then just extend the fuel lines and wires. the hardest part is figuring out how to mount it. My 03 that was bagged I put the factory tank in the bed.

I beleive those trucks are the same as mine. I just used 1/4 inch hose and brass fittings with clamps. spliced it in just like a wire.
