my truck is/was a duel tank truck, there is a switch below the cigarette lighter to switch between tanks, i ripped the rear tank out due to the quarter sized holes in it.

i think you could only get the twin tank option on gen 1 trucks, it did put the spare in the box, mounted to the drivers side ahead of the wheelwell. ive seen a few, i was told it wasnt a popular option because of the tire relocation, oddly enough thats the first thing ive done with all my trucks, i hate having the spare under the bed. its o.k. until you need it, then stuff is rusted fast, or full of frozen slush. imagine the cruising range you'd get with a 2.3 twin-tank!

What do you mean by tire relocation? rear axel, or spare? Someone should take a ton of pics of this model, as I have not seen many of them. Only from the side with the tank filler doors.

the spare tire comes in the bed because the tank is where the spare tire went.
