I don't know about a single 38 gallon for a '95 model, but you can get even more capacity by using a 32 gallon Bronco tank in the rear, and keeping your 18 gallon in the forward position for a total of 50 gallons. You'll still have the tank switch valve, but you'll have a lot of fuel on board. You will have to ditch the spare tire mount though.

The first 38 gallon I knew about was on the Superduty models.

You can fit a 38 gallon tank in the rear and the standard 18 gal in front as well. There's a real good write up on a powerstroke forum if you google the swap.

It's a great upgrade!! I just finished mine eliminated the midship tank and the problematic tank switch. Probably the best upgrade i have made on my 85.
