Possible. Have to shield them down there and harder to get the GGEs desired due to packaging + long cylindrical shape of tanks. Example: WorldCNG can stuff 9.2 GGE of tanks under a Yukon/Tahoe. Compare that to the 18.2 GGE in the bed-stealing Ram in the OP.

Fuelmaker, maker of the Phill and larger VRAs alike, went broke and was snapped up by an Italian company. Now they are BRC Fuelmaker, thus the domain name: http://www.brcfuelmaker.it/eng/flotte/fmq.asp
.As a side note, the Phill itself makes less sense than the larger VRAs like the FMQ-2-36: http://cngchat.com/forum/showthread....assed-on-Phill
As for the bed length issue: not such a big deal when you consider the restricted payload.
Carry people or dense cargo. Pick one.
