I always thought i had that problem. but when i look at my gas log im doing 60-200 miles a day and thats when i say to my self "Damn... i do too much stuff and i still get bored when im trying to have fun." and the worst part is its the expensive fun which isnt as good

Your statement is incorrect. All long bed 1500 trucks come with the 36 Gallon Tank. The regular and short bed 1500s come with a 26 gal. tank.

First off, the NNBS trucks come with a 34 gallon tank, not a 36, but normally the gas tank was dependant upon the bed size, not the cab. So short bed have 26 gallons and the long beds have 34/36 depending on the year.

How long have they been putting a 36 gal under? Because I'm pretty sure mine has a 26 unless its a typo in the book
