I moved my tank to the other side because I have a bigger tank that fits perfectly in that spot without wasting space around it. It's not a huge job to move the tank. These truck chassis's usually have mount holes pre-drilled for all sorts of tank configurations and additional gear.
If you relocate the tank remember to make an access hatch for the fuel tank sender! Creating a new hatch is considerably easier than dropping the tank in the future.
Thanks for the information about moving the tank!
That is an especially good tip about making a new access hatch for the fuel tank sender!
One thing I love about these forums is that there is a wealth of "man if I had known that before I did my first conversion" tips on it!
