Tool Box / Fuel Cell

" I now have 2 of these boxes. I use them in my trucks with service bodies. In order for them to fit, you have to cut off the L brackets on the sides, and grind down / or cut down the plug on the side/bottom to make it fit in the 48.5" you have in most service bodies ( I have RHino Linings in my truck beds so the overall dimension is reduced). I then put a strap across the top to secure it. The locking mechanism is kind of cheezy and I replaced that with pad locks to secure. Other than that, They look great and work well. "

RDS fuel transfer tank.

" The tank and toolbox work well except for one problem. I installed the kit from RDS that allows the tank to siphon into my vehicle tank. The fuel transferred as advertised, but it would also overflow some fuel on slightly bumpy roads onto the ground. I added a short piece of tubing bent in a "U" shape to trap the fuel and send it back the tank. The system works fine and as designed now with no more problems. "

Excellent tank

" Excellent tank and toolbox. Plenty big enough for my suitcase and tools when I'm on the road. The build quality of the unit seems great. The welds all look great. All of the fittings the unit is supplied with (welded plumbing fittings) are great....all around an excellent tank.
When I recieved my tank, it had been improperly crated for shipment which resulted in the fuel filler cap being busted. I spoke directly to RDS (since it was their issue) and they had me a new cap the next day. Very good service and seemingly good people to work with.
As one other reviewer wrote, this tank has allowed me to buy cheap diesel in quantity and therefore saves me quite a bit.
