dual tanks

I've seen all the posts about the Titan larger tanks, which seem to be the way to go and was ready to order, but I noticed somewhere that there is a Ford option for dual tanks (selector switch in the cab). Does anyone know anything about these? Do they have to be ordered with the truck, or can it be added after? Looked like there was a tank for and aft of the rear axle. Thanks.

Did you look at their 75 gallon tank at all? I was trying to find out if it would fit in the bed but still let me close my bak-flip F1 bed cover.
They said no but their dimmensions look likt it might just slip under there.

Also where did you mount their fuel delivery hardware, just in the corner of the dash where most tuners and stuff are?

I mounted the trax screen thing where you describe. Against the a pillar on top of the dash right above the driver side a/c vent. When I park in a hotel lot or something I put a baseball cap over it.

I did not look at the 75 gallon tank. The 50 I have I bought off Craig's list here where I live. Paid $400 for it. Still expensive but half of what a new one would be! I did not even know transfer flow existed until I saw the classified ad for it. Looked it up and decided to try it. I really like the trax transfer system. It just gradually pumps fuel as the main tank is drained, doing a good job of keeping the dash fuel gauge accurate considering the sum of 76 gallons. When my dash gauge says 1/2, I actually have 38 gallons of fuel on board.

i was afraid that the dual tanks were cab and cahssis only. I like the xfer flow, but can't give up the bed space. Guess it's off to Titan we go. Thanks for the help.
