Aux Fuel Tank Toolbox Combo

Does anyone have an aux fuel tank and tool box combo they can recommend? Would love to be able to stock up on cheap fuel when I see it. And an estimated price?

I have this one. Had it line-x sprayed and it looks great.

Well, the previous owner already put in a spray-in liner, so I'll probably keep the box as is.

I'm assuming I'll have to drill holes in the bed to have it mounted? Any idea what it would cost me to have someone install it? And how does this one work (I'm totally clueless when it comes to this)? Gravity or is there a pump?

What about this one:

RDS Auxiliary Fuel Tank/Toolbox Combo — 60 Gallon, Model# 72644 | Auxiliary-Transfer Tank + Toolbox Combos | Northern Tool + Equipment

Looks to be a bit cheaper.

I can't get your link to work.
You can hook it to a T and a switching vale to run either tank or u can do a variety of gravity feed instalations either manual or powered with switches.

This any better?

RDS Auxiliary Fuel Tank/Toolbox Combo — 60 Gallon, Model# 72644 | Auxiliary-Transfer Tank + Toolbox Combos | Northern Tool + Equipment

I called and talked to a shop in town and they wanted $300+ for a pump, then more $ for a gauge, $100+ for install and it was adding up quickly.

U don't need a pump. Hose it into your stock tank anywhere and use either a manual valve or electronic valve to allow tank to dump into the stock tank, thus refilling it. Once it's full (stock gauge) shut the valve. That's the simple way to do it.

There are three bolts that secure the tank to the truck and I use the RDS diesel install kit to feed it to the main tank. Northern Tools sells the tanks and kit. Check out the kit at:
Diesel Install Kit for Auxiliary Diesel Fuel Tank
Gravity feed systems are legal in all states as long as it fills the main tank and doesn't go directly to the engine. I also use a electric solenoid valve connected to an upfitter switch to control the flow but it is me being anal retentive and not really necessary.
