Aux fuel tank recommendations?

I'm looking to add some range for when I'm pulling a toy hauler. I have about 1000 lbs of bed capacity left after loading the trailer but don't want to use all of it for fuel. I'd like to add 40 to 50 gallons and keep at least a small tool box.
Anyone have an opinion on which brand to go with and why. Cost is less of a factor than performance. Truck is a 2011 F350 SRW.

You can start looking here.

aux fuel tank from Northern Tool + Equipment

I put a 60 gallon tank in my truck so it has a total of 97 gallons now. You will see the install kit on this page too, works good and easy to install. You will have to pay freight on this and the tanks are shipped from the factory so it can run $120 - $200 for shipping. I got mine in just under two weeks.

If you have the 11400 lb. GVWR on your truck, you will just be able to scale a 5er legally. If it has the 10k rating, forget towing a 5er legally, the truck is too heavy. You will NOT have an extra 1000 lbs for the tank. SRW Super Duties are too heavy to scale a 5th wheel. You don't have to believe me though, just hook er up and go weight it. Thats how I found out. Had to trade an 11 F250 for a dually to avoid huge fines. A lot of the state troopers have realized the SRW trucks are not legal with 5th wheels and are doing DOT stops around here.

Good Luck

I have the Titan....pricier than most but a HIGH QUALITY product..changed it out my self in the driveway with ramps..about two hours with frosty cold beverages every 30 min or so..I went this route to save the plumbing hassles of inbed tanks like my last truck...plus you don't lose any cargo space in the bed. It is a LOT lighter than the steel tanks! Cruising range with 50 gallons is 870 miles! Ford can reflash your computer for 50 gal tank so everything works perfectly...they didn't charge me to do it.

I run a 155ga aluminum tank from KLH marine. It weighs almost nothing and I have it on a switch so I can select either tank to run on.

SERIOUSLY?????????????????

I'm going to assume that's a typo and you meant 55gal, because otherwise that's almost 1400lbs of diesel you're carrying around when both tanks are full.

If not, to each his own, but that seems pretty excessive...

check local paper/craigslist, i got a good 60 gallon rds already rhino lined for bout 1/3rd the price, so just had to get the rds install kit, sweet deal. been looking for some time, finally had the funds and got it, usually some for sale all the time, if craigs search the auto parts by diesel tank, aux tank, auxiliary tank. just finished my install last weekend, suggestion, wear mechanics gloves, underside of my truck is pretty clean, but that fuel fill hose, wow, i even had so much in my goatee that wife asked if i had colored it.
