Those of you with long beds will be loving that. That would be 800city miles or 1000+ hwy miles range. Sick!

yeah, kinda unfortunate that the short beds won't fit the tank, I think they missed a large part of the market going with just the long beds

I figure that's what it is. just sucks. I see a lot of these shortbed diesels that would definitely opt for it if it was available. Glad I got the long bed though lol. ive been waiting on them to come out with one

We have a special discount on fuel through the dealership, I was able to fill up for 2.25/gallon so it wasn't terrible. Definately gonna like being able to go a month between fill ups lol

753 MILES WHEN I REFILLED AT 1/4 TANK. TOOK EXACTLY 30 GALLONS AND I COULD SEE THE FUEL IN MY FILL NOZZLE. BY MY CALCULATIONS AND CURRENT FUEL ECONOMY IN TOWN, I CAN GO JUST OVER 900 MILES ON A TANK. I FIGURE IT WOULD BE WELL OVER 1000 HIGHWAY MILES

Dang, you are killing me. Making me jealous that I have a short bed and can’t do the tank upgrade.

All joking aside, that is some impressive range.

That’s fantastic. If I had a long bed I would do this for sure.

Had to pull drive shaft but was actually pretty easy
How bad did those E rated tires hurt your mpg?

Got my tank installed a few weeks ago.
Love it.
Just did nearly 300 miles before the needle moved.
Should get well over a 1000 miles per tank.

So, $1000 with install to be allowed to pee into a Mason jar on long trips? Not to mention Depends for the missus. I know this is done, but fuel stops were quite welcome on our 13000 mile trip, at near full load. I'm thinking you're inviting DVT....

I have inquired to titan the possibility of developing a tank for short beds, obviously, would not be room for a 36 gallon unit ,
but leaving the front of the tank pushed forward of the fuel filters and possible making it deeper could result in close to 30 gallons.
maybe use the space of the def tank for those who delete? what do other short bed users think?

Would it be worth the change to go to 30 gallon ? I mean it’s 21 ish now and with slow fueling can add a couple extra gals, so your talking all that for 6 gals maybe ?
