In bed fuel tank

I got a dirty gas tank, surprise surprise after 20 years sitting. So i was thinking about replacing the gas tank but then i thought why not just get on of those in-bed gas tanks, and just saying forget the back seat. Is there anyone who has done this. I'd like to see pics if you have them.

The CJ gas tank is real easy to drop and work on. If you got rid of the back seat where would you put the beer cooler???????

This is a 16 gallon RCI tank. I have a cell for the reason of off roading. My factory tank and skid were getting beat up from trail use .
I wouldn't put one in a DD or a Jeep that only saw fire roads .
Mine uses 8AN fittings .

Bagus, plenty of room for a cooler.

Or a tool box.
On edit. Fuel cells may or may not come with foam on the inside , this is to prevent sloshing of the fuel. The down side of this is the Deterioration of the foam from Ethanol mixed gas. I have seen this first hand.
I believe other foams are available to prevent this, I don't have any experiance with them.
