I was in the 'burbs SW of Baltimore - Catonsville area, not far from Ellicott City. I used to run trails through Patapsco Valley State Park (14,000 acres, 80%+ trees!!) with my Akita - get hot? jump in the river. yeah, there's water back East!!

Papad.... I have no intention of running without a spare. Plan to mount it in inside the box along the side rail.

Gill... My plan exactly. Looking at different tanks at the wreckers that I could install where the spare is currently located. Thought I would use a high volume transfer pump and pump from the auxilary tank to the main. That's what I did with my two previous trucks but I had an 50gal inbed tank.
Not sure who asked, located about 60 miles north of Detroit MI.

For you guys with the combo tanks (tool box and aux fuel tank), do any of you have the "low profile" type that will allow a bed cover, such as a Truxedo?

Thanks in advance!

transfer flo makes an in bed ank for the short bed that works with a 5th wheel. i have the 57 gal replacement tank for 3 years and boone has ever noticed that the rear of the tank sticks down an inch. i have the 100 gal in bed tank. 157 gal total. sure saves a lot of money fueling up where the fuel is cheaper. i added the fasss fuel filter system and have all the fuel go through it before it goes to the oem filters. the fass filters ae hard to find. if anyone gets their system, get a spare set of fiters an take them to a truck parts store and let them find the replacements. lots cheaper,,fass overcharges bad for them. and the numbers on them will not cross reference with anyones filters.

aux truck bed fuel tank wanted

I'm looking for an AUX fuel tank to install into my truck bed. im looking for something around 100 to 150 gallons. I'm in kitsap county washington state and would prefer something around here. If you know anyone that has one please let me know. I will be using it for bio diesel so it needs to be "CLEAN" or new please. also if anyone knows of any stores in the kitsap county washington state area that sell and install them that would help too. thanks a head of time.
