The two tanks are the same length and width. The 36 is taller. All fittings are in the same locations so swapping should be easy. I think the ecoboost has a lifetime fuel filter in the tank.

Don't know the make but there is an aftermarket tailgate lock that is like a padlock to go around the passenger side pivot point. If you can't cut that off you can't get the tailgate off.
