Dual tanks for a F350 CC

I just bought a 2000 F350 single cab dually and it has the large tank in the rear. I would also like to add the normal tank on it that fits between the frame rails. It should fit in there right?

Your tank is in the rear?
Normal tank goes on the drivers side, mounted to frame.
Excursion tank goes where the spare tires goes.
I think you're asking if you can put a second tank on passenger side frame but you can't unless you chop off and re-route your exhaust.

If you have normal stock tank on the drivers side frame you can add an EX tank where the spare goes but it involves chopping off the crossmember, bed removal and a ton of work.

I have no experience in the matter but you probably could, you would need a fuel tank from a extended cab shortbed or crew cab short bed truck (27 gal), and the transfer valve from an OBS and switch and run some some new wires.

Sounds like your truck is a chassis cab....those had the fuel tank in the rear. Do you have a bed or utility body? Ford and the aftermarket sells side tanks for tow truck utility bodies because they have to abandon the rear tanks when those trucks are upfitted.

My F450 had two tanks (midship and aft) so I know it's possible. You just need to determine which model will fit based on your trucks configuration. Transfer Flow is one brand that I have used in the past. I couldn't find their website but I did find them for sale here:
Ford Midship Replacement Tank | Transfer Flow

Hope this helps.

Thanks guys. My truck is a F350 cab and chassis and has a flatbed on it with a rear tank. I found out The CC have narrower frames than the regular F350 . I'm thinking that there may not be enough room for a regular tank inside the middle of a cc frame. Now I'm wondering if there was ever a factory option for dual tanks on a CC? I prefer that option because I might find one in a junkyard somewhere. More than likely I'll have to go with a bed mounted auxiliary tank.

I did some googling and found that the CC did have a 19 gallon midship tank as an option

You say it's got a flatbed on it now, are you sure it's not a chassis cab? The chassis cabs have narrower frames on them and steel tank in the rear.
