I'm was really considering doing this, it's a great idea and this write up makes it look pretty simple.
But then I looked under my truck today, and realized that my exhaust is only about 3 inches from the bottom of the tank .
I don't really want to cut up the exhaust and lower it, so I may be going with the regular 19 gallon after all.
If your exhaust is in the factory spot the tank will fit, the tank kinda tapers down as it goes past the frame. I think they do that for the exhaust and hitches

Correct, the F26D tank does NOT fit in a cab-n-chassis truck. I don't think a Bronco tank will either. I would be looking at a tank from a 99+ SuperDuty cab-n-chassis

I guess I'm going to have to crawl under there measure the dimensions of my existing tank.
Was the 35 gal the only option offered in the Bronco?
Where did Ford source their tanks from for the longer cab chassis?
Are the frame widths the same on all the Superdutys ?
I wonder what other differences I'll find.
I can't answer any of your other questions, but the 32 gallon tank was the only one offered for the Bronco.
According to info on Rock Auto, the Bronco tank is 31 7/8" wide x 22 1/4" long x 15 3/4" deep.
I'm sure Brad will know for sure, but I think pickup frames are 34" wide, and cab/chassis are 32" wide. If that's true, the Bronco tank should fit your cab/chassis. If you end up going the Bronco route, you'll need a sending unit from a Bronco as well.
When i bought my 38 it came with extentions for sending unit an wires, but mine is a gasser. I dont know what deisel sender looks like.

It's hard to show dominance over your cat as it watches you clean it's litter box
But what about the fuel sender? The gauge won't be accurate with the current location. Won't it read empty but still have a few gallons left?? The float won't drop far enough. Or am I overthinking this.......
