Saddle tanks on a Fleetside?

Is it possible to install side fuel tanks on a 67 swb fleetside?
The reason I ask is that I would like to keep my spare tire under the bed, and add a receiver hitch, and I know I don't want the tank in the cab.
Didn't Chevy put the tanks on the side in the 80's, kinda half under the cab and half under the bed?
I know it wouldn't be as safe as between the rear frame rails, but seems like a frame could be made to protect it.
Is there room in front of the rear wheels for 15 gallons on each side of the truck?
