Default Installing Larger Fuel Tank

I have a 1996 F150 5.0L that has the 19 gal fuel tank. I have been looking into installing a larger fuel tank. Has anyone done this? I have read around and it sounds like you can put the 33gal tank out a same model year Bronco. If it is possible what do you have to do to hang it where the old tank is? Will the fuel pump and sending unit from the Bronco work on the F150? Any help would be great. Thanks!

You need the straps AND the fuel pump assembly for the bronco tank, the f150 ones aren't the right "depth" to use in such a big tank. You also have to take the spare tire carrier stuff out because it will be in the way.
