Titan was good decision.

Towing a trailer with my '12 CCSB in the southwest was a logistical problem with the pathetic 26 gallon tank. The Titan 50 gallon tank fixed that problem. Haven't looked back! 👍

I just did an 800 mile trip with my Titan. Only had to refill once getting 9.5 MPG towing the 5ver. What an awesome mod...

I think you'll need the long bed to get the 50 gal tank op. I believe it won't fit on the short bed trucks. Im in the same boat. I think I'm going to tune it. I'll get more power and better fuel economy. The tuner is cheaper than the fuel tanks.

- I stand corrected. they do make the 50 for the short bed!

Titan makes a tank for both long & short trucks. Save up and do it. You won't be sorry. That is until you sell it, that is

Does Titan offer a tank in between the stock tank size and the 50gal? I've been considering a larger tank. I'm worried about the amount of tank that hangs below the frame, maybe a smaller tank would ride a bit higher in the frame?

I haven't seen one, but they do make a skid plate for it...

The Titan skid plate is plastic.

The skid plate might be plastic but does fit the tank snugly. It does offer some protection. When I installed mine with the skid plate, it didn't appear to be plain old plastic but a strong composite.

I have had no worries about the tank hanging down a bit lower. Something can bounce up and hit the stock tank just as easy. The tank being poly will flex some. Also, have yet to hear anyone say they have had a problem with it dragging or being damage from hanging lower than stock tank.

Email from Titan states the skid plates are made of cross linked, military grade XLHDPE polymer.

Thanks for getting clarification Larry - I knew it was more than a "weak" piece of plastic. I only know of a few people that have them and other than issues with water getting in or bits of plastic in the tank I haven't heard of any other problems. Those seem to have been resolved or no one is reporting them anymore? Obviously a good careful install should all but eliminate those issues.

I have a 33 gal RDS aux tank with gravity feed in the bed. Going on 18 months now. Gives me almost 60 gallons total. If needed to I can unbolt it and its an easy remove.

I use the ATTA 80 gallon in your bed tank w/Freedom Fill Auxiliary System, used with Stock 42 gallon tank gives me 120 gallons of fuel.

stock diesel tank is 37.5 gallons on a LWB 2011-2016 Super Duty. Still gives you close to 120 gallons.


I like the 65 gal Titan tank.
