" Easy to install. Expensive to ship. It is a gravity fill tank that is rather slow, need to upgrade from 3/8 " to 1/2" fill fittings and line.
Overall very good product. Tool box is very nice and bigger than expected.
Looks good in the bed of my 2012 Ram 3500 long bed truck. Allows me enough room to have the fifth wheel in place for towing.

Installation

" Looks like a quality product. However if you have a Tonneau cover, be ready to make alterations and spend extra hours at installation. You have to remove the adjusters to open the cover, removes some of the railing and the tank has about 3" of unusable space in front of box. May work better with a topper instead of a Tonneau cover. Hoping this was a good investment. "

" I installed one of these in my Ford F-350 and love it. The construction is good and I haven't had a bit of trouble with it. I installed it with the available gravity fill kit and it works great. I would recommend this setup to anyone. "
