Fuel tank sizes...

As most that have bought a new 6.7 stuck with a 26 gallon tank are a bit disappointed with the size of the tank.

Out of curiosity if I had purchased a CCSB gasser it would of been fitted with a 35 gallon tank. Why does ford only fit the 137", 142", and 156" models with 26 gallon tanks?

What's so dramatically different under my CCSB w/ the 6.7 than the gasser?

Not knocking the trucks.. Just curious. Titan tank will be on order soon.

Love my 2013 6.7!

5 gallon DEF tank is taking up the space where a larger tank would have been.

If the DEF tank is omitted, then we can install the OEM 35gal tank?

You've already said your truck leans with a full tank- and with mine lowered, I don't need the extra weight.

35 gallons is just right.

I will agree with this statement. Any truck that tows needs a 35+ gallon fuel tank.

Well air bags have fixed the leaning. Thing is, these things are designed to sit level with a fully 26 gallon tank and a 200+lb exhaust system on the other side. Once you delete the truck, and double the fuel capacity, it's going to sit a lil heavy on one side, cant do much about that.
