Just aft of the rear axle. I removed the spare tire carrier and notched the 
rear frame crossmember to allow the tank to sit closer to the bed floor. 
You might also look into Suburban and Blazer tanks. I installed an 85 Blazer 
tank under the bed of my 62, and it wasn't really difficult. I moved the 
crossmember for clearance, and used special fuel-resistant hose for moving 
the filler and vent openings away from the center of the truck. I'm still 
going to use a bed floor filler location, but it'll be outside the frame and 
behind the wheelwells.
