I gave serious thought to this but backed off for one reason. The only thing smaller than our tiny 26 gallon tanks is my wife's bladder. If the truck's tank is near empty you can be damn sure her tank is just about full... So either way, I gotta pit stop...

LOL. I hear you. I got over 40' behind me. If my next truck doesn't have a larger tank, that's going to be one of the first things I add. On this one I really wanted a Titan or TransferFlow OEM location replacement tank but they don't make one for SuperCab short bed trucks...

Nice truck. What is a payload downgrade package? Don't most folks want a payload upgrade package? Not trying to be snarky, just curious.

Thanks rooksroost...that sounds like a great option to look into. I've thought about need to stop and refuel every ~220 miles when towing because of the 26 gallon fuel tank. Don't mind stopping every couple hundred miles for a quick break...but knowing you need to stop and refuel (go in search of diesel) is another story.

You say a removable tank? Can you give me some additional details about that, and how does it transfer the fuel? I am new to this, and just getting my 2001 f250 set up!

My truck did come with what is either a 36 or 42 gal tank. I just want the additional peace of mind of not having to go find fuel!

Any help will be appreciated!
Thanks, Paul.

The F350 can be de-rated on the sticker to 11,400 or or 10,000 to save the end user registration fees and hassles in states where there are rate increases for higher GVWR's. The trucks are physically identical, just de-rated to save fees.
