Great item

"The item comes as described. It came on a truck and I was called by the trucker once he was on-site to deliver. It was in good shape and not damaged when delivered.
The item was easy to install into the truck and to the fuel line. It is of good quality and is made in America. I would recommend this product because it is a great price for a great product."

"install went fine..hardest part was putting in diesel install kit on my old back…put in 2012 Ram 2500 short bed w/ 5th wheel in bed and shell liner…Bolted down in bed, drilled hole and installed larger hose in hole to protect fuel hose from getting cut. Fit in bed like a glove, room on sides for small items and also fit under tonneau cover with room to spare, lid opens without hitting bulkhead…with 51 gallons in bed and 34 in factory tank I can now go approx 750 miles till fill up time…caution though, don't wait till factory tank is empty, transfer is slow and is best to use tank while driving….tool section is limited but good for miscellaneous items….I have a 6.5 ft bed and my 5th wheel is a slider and tank was not a problem for clearance..."

tank kit

from service manager in New York
"The tank was ordered and came in fine, no one told or informed us that a kit (3490902) was needed to install. This should be listed in the catalog or web-site as a not included item rather than finding out later ordering and putting the job another 3-5 days behind schedule."
