After receiving and unboxing our newly arrived 5582606 fuel tank, we decided to do a side-by-side comparison of them. As visible from the picture above, the later model tank is distinctly larger.

Visible on the rear of the tank is the cut-out allowed for the drive line parking brake.

Also of note is that the tank skidplate does not fit the older-style tank. Although we could have cut and used a brake to rebend it, we will store it for a future project. Additionally, it is clear that removal of the driveline would not be required to install or drop the older-style tank because of its reduced size.
