As we all know, the stock tanks hang entirely too low on the full size bronco. While looking for a jackpoint under my '89 f150 today I had (what i think) is a good idea... Can i swap the gas tank from the f150 into the bronco and vise-versa? The tank from the f150 is entirely behind the rear axle (no saddle tanks) but it doesn't drop below the framerails like the bko tank does. Granted the f150 tank is only 16 gallons, but it's also half the height. And since both trucks are EFI shouldn't it pretty much be a "plug and play" application?

Here's some pics of what i'm rambling on about

The Bronco tank is not as deep (not height) as the pickup tank. A Bronco tank will fit in a pickup but a pickup tank will not fit under a Bronco due to the available space between crossmembers.

yeah what he said for 78-79s at least. you may be able to get one in your year. it may not be a perfect fit, but i bet it wont hang down as much as your stock one does.
