Fuel sump, Who has one?

Just wanted to see if any 7.3's are running a sump and how it worked out for you. Looking at a couple different ones, but before I buy just wanted to get ya'lls opinions. Thanks in advance

I was thinking the same thing, plus less chance of air in the lines like when the pickup tube corrodes.

Same here. I got mine from Alligator Performance. They come with the option of 3/8 and 1/2 lines, but I called them and got a 5/8" nozzle.I have to wait until I get my 2 weeks off in July to install it.

thanks for the replies everyone, keep me informed how the install goes. And what did you end up doing with the line thats already there from pump to tank if you didn't drop the tank?

Like I said bro haven't done mine yet. I'm deployed right now so getting the parts ordered and stock piled at home for now.

I am going to drop my tank just to make it easier. I will take the line from the sender to pump off and cap it at the sender.

If you drop the tank it's a good time to do the harpoon mod.
