Well I bought this

It was too long so I shortened it 7"...or had a buddy shorten and weld it I should say

I pull this And I needed the added range. Tank started at 105gal and ended up being about 95 when it was modded. Sadly though that only gets me two weeks to a month tops then it's time to fuel up again

Im averaging right around 3k a month. At least with that tank I can get fuel cheaper in Oklahoma or southern Kansas and use it instead of the more expensive stuff I can get where I live thats not as good...I need to get myself a motorcycle to save $$ with fuel

You can get a tank from Titan that replaces your factory tank but they are $1000+ if I remember correctly. I know some people have taken tanks out of excursions and put them in place of the spare tire and run a twin tank setup. I don't know if you can do that on a 6.0 or not but I don't see a reason you couldn't. Ultimately it comes down to what you want to spend and if you don't mind losing your spare tire, I believe the titans make you lose the spare too. You can get a nice transfer tank in bed for about half the cost of a titan and they don't take up too much bed space especially since you are a lb. I'm jealous by the way, I am looking for a 06-7 F350 CCLB and can't find any in my area.
