Titan tank?????

What do you guys think about the titan tank conversion and the possibility of having a greater chance of water in your fuel with condensation? Anybody think that this could be an issue?

Had mine on for just about a year no issues. Great customer serivce. I think the key is getting installed correctly. There is a particular process to tighting down the ring that i suspect some have skipped or didnt notice. They could use a bit better instruction set the print quality made it hard to read. Other wise top notch. Huge time saver too. The stock tank was just wayyyy to tiny.

I'm interested in this too... the dealer I'm buying my truck from is a Titan dealer, but Transfer Flow is just over the hill from me. TF seems to have a great reputation, but from the posts I've read Titan seems less expensive. I think the Titan tanks have more capacity as well...

I put TF in my truck a couple months ago. There are some good videos of the process,,,,,, very easy. Did it by myself in about 3 hrs. All you need are a couple motorcycle straps to give you a hand. I went with TF for the piece of mind if Iget off road. I didn't like the idea of a plastic tank (even with their plastic shield) without a metal skid pad. In the end its what you feel most comfortable with. I paid around $1000 with shipping (Texas). Total fuel capacity, 52ish gallons total. As far as a water issue, I fill up once a week, no matter how much fuel I have. The larger tank just allows me too make it a full week, where as 26 gallon didn't. Its also nice to see 800 miles to empty if going on a trip. Torque the nuts on the ring a couple times and you'll be good.

I'm concerned about this issue or the potential for this issue to arise. I was ready to pull the trigger on a Titan tank and am still considering it as I'd like to keep my bed space to a maximum. In the past, I have used a transfer tank with a dual fuel filter setup. Only downside is that you lose bed space. Times like this I wish I went with the long box. Next truck will definitely be a long box.

Yea not to sure how big an issue it could be if any, but as sensitive as these trucks seem to be with even the smallest amount of water, not sure if the risk is worth the gain.

Don't think that you will have anymore issues with either tanks you go with as long as you service your truck regularly, but I will tell you this I've had my 57gal TF in my truck for years and love it except when I have to fill it at 4+ a gallon. And after all consideration I too felt the safety of an all steel tank would be better for off road. But in hindsight I don't take it off road as much as I thought, Frame twist and all, and I know my 7.3 doesn't get as good mpg as yours but at 200lbs dry for the TF as opposed to the 90lbs I think for the titan, you might want to take that in consideration. BTW my pig an I weight 9200 together
