I think im ready to try to mount a lifesize fox. I have done a couple pedestal mounts with success. My question is I use sodium sulfate on my hides. How do I get it all the way down the tail? Im afraid that the hair on the tail is gonna slip. I use spray tan by Ben Mears after the sulfate. Do I need to split the tail?

You should have split it back when you salted it (if you did salt it). To get the tan properly worked into the tail, it has to be split.
