I recently purchased a RDS 60 gallon aux fuel tank tool box combo and wanted to share with yall some pics of the install and end results.
This tank-box combo now allows me to have a range of 1500+ miles without refueling while also keeping the items that cluttered up the inside of my truck in the tool box portion.
I simply refuel truck at aux tank and when the drain valve is placed in the open position the fuel is gravity fed into my main tank.

Pic 1- shows the exterior of the tank-box which I had bedlined.

Pic 2- This is the vent system and its plumbing , exterior fuel gauge and filler cap that come with box and the drain valve will come with the "T" connecter kit.

Pic 3- Up close pic of drain valve and the hole in truck bed that it feeds through.

Pic 4- Tool box area with lid open

Pic 5- Underneath truck where the drain hose feeds to filler neck.

Looks good, but you might want to check your state regulations on gravity feed fuel transfer. In some states it's illegal.

Nice pics. Let us know how the valve works for you too. Some folks have had them stick open and over fill the main tank.
