I did mine that way because if I want to throw shit in the bed I won't have to worry about damaging it or covering it up. For a show truck hands down in the bed is the obvious choice.

to add to this I found a video on youtube. Same thing in a nutshell. Hopefully have mine tackled over my 3 day weekend this weekend. I really think the hardest part is gonna be how far do I go with cleaning up the frame while I have the bed off. This is only a mock up for the LS swap in the future so I dont have to run lines....only get the tank mounted as I'll be driving it to work with the original tank Monday.

Has anyone yet had any luck installing a Burb 40 gallon tank in a Longbed? I measured once and it seemed to be tight to the rear axle to me. Not sure I like it being that close to the rear axle.
