    My other trucks all have the round tank that hangs on the frame, works great, no troubles. I just picked up a 359 Pete that has a stretched frame and I want to keep a clean frame look, so I’m wanting a tank set’s behind the sleeper. I’m using frameless end dumps and I believe 35 gallon would be sufficient and I’ve seen a few aluminum rectangular tanks. Is the aluminum more prone to stress cracks is bolted down to the frame rails? Would mind a steel one but plastic is not an option. Who all makes something I’m looking for or something I’d like?

    I have a steel one that you are welcome to, but I imagine shipping would be too much. I will have another soon, as I am going to split the right side tank on my current project. We don't need 300 gallons of fuel capacity for what we do.

    Ive had 20220404_152950.jpg this 50gal aluminum tank for 3 years now and haven't had an issue with cracks. I've found with temperature swings the steel fittings/aluminum bungs tend to be weepy even with thread sealant though.

    I built them, just regular glad hands with a plug, then just move them to the Cali connects if you hook up to a truck with only deck lines
