Fuel Tank/Toolbox Combo

I am looking at putting one of these in my F250. Anybody have any brands they recommend or ones I should stay away from?

The toolbox tank probably does matter, however get this fuel controller.

Auto Fuel Controller - The Fuelbox

Its the best I have found, and LOVE it. Way better then gravity feeds, no worry about overflows. Their toolbox combos seem great too, so you could just get the entire thing from them.

The other option you have is to just replace your fuel tank. There is plenty of room underneath for a larger fuel tank. Thats what I did on my ford. However my new RAM didn't have the same amount of room, so went with the combo box instead.

I had one when I had my 09 GMC dually/Fiver but did not put the controller in just did the gravity feed and worked great. Loved having almost 100 gal of fuel on board, let me choose where I was filling...

They say the gravity feed works great, until it doesn't The ball can get slight stuck and fuel will just seep out. I like the assurance I don't have to worry about that, plus having a fuel gauge in the cabin is great. This one just keeps the main tank always at 3/4 full.

I purchased one from KSH Marine. Very happy with it. The fuel fill is hid under the lid so it cannot be tampered with and they have an accessory kit that switches between the stock and aux tank and uses the in dash fuel gauge for both tanks.
