    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone knew if I could fit a TriPac on a new Volvo 780 with twin 125 fuel tanks and a 235 wheelbase?

    Yes, they usually mount them on the passenger side frame rail, under the removable fairing, so it can easily be serviced if needed.

    Hmm, I don't know where this room is for one cuz all that after treatment stuff takes up the space on mine on the passenger side. Although I have twin 150 fuel tanks, maybe that's where I'm losing the space.

    Usually you have to have 100 gallon tanks and it mounts on driver side under the cab. In front of the fuel tank in between the def tank.

    I have a 2015 780 231WB and I specced it out from the factory. I had to get a 100gal on one side and a 150gal on the other side and the tanks had to be placed as far back as possible. The Tripac went next to the 100gal tank and I got removable fairings.

    I have a 2015 730..237 wheel base..150 gallon left side..125 gallon right side.
    My tripac is mounted on the right side in front of the fuel tank.
    Your 780 will have no problems mounting a tripac..look at your build sheet and it will tell you how the tanks are mounted.
