I think 19 gallons was as big as the front tank came. They came on anything with an 8 foot bed. But, that is what you already have. You might try a Superduty tank; they were something like 38 gallons.

I have seen a couple Factory plastic 22 gallon tanks but there were diesel only. And kind of a odd option.
The easier route to go if it is a pickup is the 36 gallon rear tank that is available

stock tanks are 19 front and rear.
the 38 gallon tank is made by spectra.
here is a good writeup by Jim from rosewood diesel.

In the future I plan to do the super duty tank up front, and the spectra replacement in the rear for maximum range. I don't want an aux tank that takes up more bed space.

The first one I'll do though will be the rear tank.

I came across that write-up from Jim while researching this two months back and bookmarked it for how thorough it is.

Far as I know, the Spectra tank should work for both fuel types.

spectra tank was designed for the bronco. guys started using them in diesel trucks when the rear tank would leak for extra capacity.

Nope. The spectra tank was not designed for a the bronco. (it is too long front to back to fit in bronco). it was specifically made for pickups
