    Does anyone know if a 41 gallon gas tank from a 85 Suburban will fit in a K5?

    Sure won't - it'll interfere with the rear axle and it's range of travel.

    hmmmmmm....For some reason I thought it would. What if it was a K5 with stock suspension and little trail use?

    To my understanding it's just too long - I thought of it before, and everyone told me it wouldn't work.

    Sub tanks won't fit in K5's. Tanks are too long and will hit the rear axle. Look at a Sub and you'll see that there is a lot more sheet metal from the rear wheelwell to the back bumper. Fuel tank fills the area well in a Sub but would be at least 6" too much in a K5.

    A good firm grip is my idea of gun control!
