I had a 50 gallon Titan tank on my 2011 and just installed this S&B 60 gallon tank on my 2017. Pretty simple deal even for one guy on a garage floor. Just though others might be interested in my experience.

It's cool but no way I can travel that far without having to stop anyway. lol. The main advantage is when towing and getting 9 mpg. With only 31 gallons usable in the oem tank it runs out quick.

Not only advantageous when getting 9mpgs, its great to be able to wait and fill up until your in a area where fuel is cheaper or price drops.

I have a 60 gallon external(85 Gallon total) and have been able to avoid needing to fuel up in California. Diesel is as much as $1less per gallon between California and Arizona,Nevada,New Mexico and Oregon.

I notice zero difference in fuel economy with extra weight of fuel, Im getting ready to do a Delete since Im approaching 90K on odometer and really curious to see what kind of mileage/Distance I can get.

That's the beauty of the extra capacity. Fuel up when you want to, not when you have to. I had the same issue in CA. Hard to find diesel there (for a Utah who is used to diesel at every station) AND it's $1.5 more per gallon.

Driving into CA I passed a sign that said Welcome to California and I thought, "No I'm not." CA doesn't want my big truck, my big trailer, or my politics in the state. They're happy to take my money but guaranteed they are happy to get rid of me. But I digress...

Ordered my 56 gallon tank yesterday for my 2015. I have access to the military auto hobby shop here in Key West...and yes, it is warm and sunny. The S&B company has a process so that my fuel gauge will read accurately for the 56 gallon tank. And, the S&B is a few hundred less than the Titan tank.

Had a titan on my '06 chevy diesel....loved not having to worry about low fuel in the urban areas. Running down to 10-20 miles left is a little scary.

having the 'under' the truck tank makes room in my short box for a tool box. really no cost advantage in my opinion however.
