I have the Transfer Flow tank/toolbox combo. I wanted a toolbox, and more fuel, so this combo seemed to fit. It automatically fills your stock tank when the stock gets to half, and it repeats this until the supplemental tank is empty. Mine holds 40 extra gallons. With Spartan 250 and 37's, I go an average of 850 miles +/- before I fill up.

Personally I would get the Titan tank. Mainly because I have a SB and dont want to loose the space. Looks like you have a long bed though.

Also check out THIS thread. Had some pretty good points as well.

Question #1 - Do you cherish bed space?
Question #2 - Do you want/need a toolbox?

Those two answers will steer you towards a replacement tank (less gain in volume), a toolbox/tank combo (medium gain in volume), or fuel only tank (maximum volume)

how much do you gain with a replacement tank? Would the fuel gauge have to be reset?

ive got a titan tank in two differant trucks and I really like them. I personally wouldnt want to give up bed space but that would be the biggest factor to me. The titan tank holds at least what they claim, I think prob alittle more. The biggest drawback to them is it messes your gauge up, its still empty when it says empty but its not consistent the rest of the time.

My dad has a 100 gallon diamond plate square tank with an aux pump too. Use it for pumping diesel in tractors. Bad thing about it is it get diesel all over the bed.

I had the Transfer Flow tank in my 06 and I am going to put it in my 08. I loved that tank. I also have an aluminum tank in the box at the front that I am thinking about selling as it is a pain. I have a buddy that made a flat aluminum tank that covered the whole floor of his box. It also goes around his fifth wheel hitch and is 4" tall. He can still use his sled deck also. I have not seen it but it sounds awesome. It supposedly holds over 60 gallons.
