Very nice. Its so nice carrying plenty of fuel. I've tried several different setups and could never imagine running around with the small tank a crew cab short bed has again. I'm running a Titan 51 gal. now but have also used a toolbox tank combo and loved it too.

Yes my 90 gal l tank is set up with a pump and a small electronic solnoid valve that are wired together on one of my upfitter switches. Flip the switch and it opens the valve and turns the pump on and pumps away. The only draw back is the local filling station at the super market gets a little mad when I use my $0.20 off per gallon voucher from buying groceries to fill up all 129 gal... OPPS!!!

Northern tool has a pretty good set up that comes with a whole bunch of fittings and the pipe needed to gravity feed it into the fill neck. Take a look here....

RDS Diesel Install Kit for Auxiliary Diesel Fuel Tank — Fits all Ford, Dodge and 2011 Chevrolet and GMC Trucks, Model# 011025 | Auxiliary-Transfer Tank Accessories | Northern Tool + Equipment

I used the kit with a slight modification. Works great.

The Titan was very easy to install. The hardest part of the whole job was removing the fuel lines from the old tank because of the fittings. I ran as much fuel as I could out of it before doing the swap, the low fuel light was on but there were still several gallons in there. I LOVE the extra capacity and still not losing a bit of bed space to it. One downside I can think of is it gets pretty close to the back of the transfercase on my truck which would make changing that fluid a challenge now. That's okay though since I changed that fluid about 2 weeks before the tank went in. BTW best deal I could find the tank for was from Aquasun Motorsports, I believe they are out of FL.
