    I went from the 30 to the 25 to get the smallest tank up out of the way from getting dammaged when off roading. only had to get new straps.

    Won't work unless you feel good about having the gas tank being your bumper.
    The 20 and 30 gallong tanks are the same between burb and blazer but the 40 gallon is longer . Can't go frward because of the axle so you can only go backwards and hang the extra 6-8 inches out the back of the truck.

    The 40g tank is about 6" longer.I thought of it and even have a 40g tank but unless you want your diff cozy with the tank I would not do it.You would heve to relocate the front x-member for the tank to fit.Mike
