Mustang gas tank

What is the best year of Mustang tank to fit on the rear frame rails? 68? 69? Also, How did you mount it? Do any of these have return lines?
Just curious as I am still planning my build for this winter which is coming soon!
Thanks

INSTALLING A MID-60's Mustang Tank in a '53 F-100 truck

That answers the questions pretty well. I think 68 and earlier was 16 gallon, 69 was 20, and 70 was 22 gallon. All of them should fit fine.

Thanks guys! The information and photo's were just what I needed! Looks like a real easy install after seeing these. I think I will go with the under frame with channels so it will be easier if removal is needed. The fun began today as my helper and I stripped all the sheetmetal, doors, and box off the truck. Then completely power washed everything. The cab was alot heavier than I expected so we will be removing that tomorrow with a proper lift. Man, the floor vents and cowl drains were solid full of mice nests and lots of good things! It took awile to clear all of that out completely. The good thing is they are not all rusted out. Well, It's a start.
Thanks Again
I will take photos of the process and post them soon.
