Dennis: Had the same idea for my 55- 1st pu - found an old 48 tank &
refurbished - I think it has added room - seat not installed yet - most
important I think, though I don't smoke is getting the tank out of the cab -
wanted to save under rear bed for spare in original location for my driver.
If you find a source please let me know - want a new one if I can find.
