Just a suggestion...spray paint the Titan tank straps black. Did that on my 06 and then on my 16. Makes them and the tank disappear in the shadows of the undercarriage.

Also, to add what skanj0 posted, the paint will prevent the straps from rusting. I bought a used Titan tank for my truck and the straps were so rusted that I had to buy replacements. This was a MD truck and winters are not the worst here, so any bit of salt will wreak havoc on the straps. I painted my replacement straps and used stainless hardware on the pump mounting ring as well (also rusted pretty well)

I must admit I was surprised the straps were not powder coated black, however upon inspection they are seriously coated in what looks like hot-dip galvanizing. This is different than the popular install vid posted up on youtube where the front L support appears to be powder coated black. I presumed that I have a recently produced and updated kit (has the new style vent as well), and I guessed that Titan extended the galvanizing to the front bracket in addition to the straps. So from a corrosion standpoint, they shouldn't need any additional coating, but I agree a little flat black spray paint on top the galvanized parts would help to better conceal.

Dealer wants 107 dollars to diagnose my oil leak if the warranty doesn't cover it

Bought it used from a dealer and wasn't sure when items were changed last about 1500 miles ago.

So, just hit 15,000 miles and . . . .

Changed Oil & Filter
Changed Air Filer
Changed Both Fuel Filters
Rotated Tires

Planning to change oil every 5,000 miles.

Agreed, mine came the same way. The straps looked like they were well coated.

I probably will cover them up though, the straps are starting to annoy me.

My tank leaks a little when I fill it (only when I fill it), I wonder if the check valve at the top is faulty. All of the other hoses are clamped.

I know I'm in the wrong section but I took a ride in one. I believe WOW wouldn't even cover it. Nice rides Y'all have.

I finally got around to getting rid of the fake wood look on my 2016 Lariat dash surround. I removed it and took it to a shop that did hydro-graphic work. Very happy with the end result..
