Are we still talking dual tanks or just a bigger replacement?

If you put the spare tire in the bed or on a bracket off the back then a tank from any full size Jimmy or Blazer(1973-1991) will fit in there and you could use the skid plate that comes with them as well. As to switching back and forth, there are switches used on dual tank motorhomes that switch everything over between tanks(power for pump, sending unit, gas and return lines). Might also want to look at the old saddle tanks on a short box chevy.

Have you ever thought about a marine fuel tank? Yes they are stainless steel and expensive, but you could probably get one custom made if you wanna fit it under the truck. You are going to have to buy an expensive fuel pump and drill some holes (I dunno how comfortable you are with that).

I've thought about this and if you put it in the bed you could just use gravity and let that magical force fill your existing fuel tank until the one in your bed is empty.

You could split the fill-up hose that connects to existing tank with the one in the bed with a one way Y-valve and there you go no pumps or switches needed.

The bed tank would also be out of the way from potential hazards like rocks and tree stumps.

In reality I would just buy some Rotopax and attach them to the bed rails and call it a day. Put them in when you need them, take them out when you don't.
