Sorry,bought the truck with tank installed. Really nice to have especially where fuel stations are few & far between or passing through an area of extra high prices.

Nice thing about mine is that it is bed rail high but is half fuel half storage. About 35gal fuel.

I have a 25 gallon Enduraplas tank. I consider it the poor man's aux. tank. Nothing to install but I do have to pull over to fill up!
Works like a champ!??

60 gallon RDS tank/tool box combo. Had it installed when I bought the truck. REALLY nice mod.

It isn't about saving $$. It isn't about "I need to stop anyway", it is about choosing when/where you stop.

mine would have been bed height, but i put mine rubber mounts under for vibrations, and so the gunk can get out.

Thanks everyone for the replies. Yes a type,AUXILIARY, I think I do real good for a guy who has lost 85% of his vision.
I have weighed the truck and rig, on a Cat Scale. Ok there.
I also like the idea of being able to fuel up maybe every 2 days. And maybe not have the rig on the truck. Plus we want to travel the US highways, get off the interstates highways, and explore.
I will research the different brands that were listed and see what I think will work for me.
Thanks again for the replies.

wood worker, if you are still there.

RDS tanks are made in Perry FL.

They will make them to your spec. And if you are close you could pick it up and save shipping.

If you really want a cheap solution you could weld a couple hose barbs onto the steel rim of your spare tire and plumb it into your fuel tank. It would hold a good 25 US gallons.

RDS 60 gal/tool box, gravity feed,diesel only, installed with northern freight install kit.

I've been using it since 2006, and would not be without it.

I like to switch it on to refill the main tank when we stop for lunch (Takes about 30 minutes). Then I fill the aux tank when we go out for supper at our campground. I like to start the next day with 80 gals.
