I was in Az last week for work but came in early weekend before to go up to Page/Lake Powell. Beautiful place.

How do you like your RDS? Also, i see you have two hoses coming out from the fill area. Do you pump your fuel out or gravity feed it? I assume pump given there are two hoses and not one.
My requirements for a fuel/toolbox in order
1) fill is under the lid
2)box is of decent depth (>8-9", preferable >10")
3)tank capacity is >=50 gal

This Fuelbox one is nice but has external fill, is only 8.5" deep and is only 40 gal

I'd have to measure this Fuelbox. Its 24" deep, is only 44 gal and sticks above bed rail 1.125" but the box is 11" deep

This fuelbox is what i consider the most efficient design. Pic shows external fill but they note its internal unless specified. Only drawback is it would stick up near 5" above rails (would need to call to find out box depth but i'm sure its within my acceptable range

If this RDS could come powder coated then it would probably be my best option: 60 gal with 10" deep box.

This ATTA tank is nice. Only 9" deep and you'd have to figure out how to fill in the non-threaded hole in the tank on the inside if you dont buy a sending unit. My major problem, WTF were they thinking putting the fill on it like they did? it looks like an afterthought.

With all this "gun control" talk I haven't heard one politician say how they plan to take guns from criminals, just law abiding citizens.

I like it, it does what I wanted and hidden under my cover.
Mines electric fuel pump with normally closed solenoid for double protection from fuel getting by when not on.
Ign power switch on fuel transfers, ign off switch off fuel does not flow.
2 lines one 3/8" fuel line supply the other 1/4" vent up and out the down.

If you've checked on Titan you should have found that gravity is not approved in most of the states, this is something you'll have to check on where you live.
A lot of people go with gravity but if they was ever in a accident and had fuel spillage, they would be fined big time no questions asked having gravity fed aux fuel tank.

More people have had fuel gauge issues with gravity, mostly IMO feeding to fast using larger lines, and a greater chance of over filling spilling on the ground, especially if they forget and leave the gravity filling.
You can overfill electric, if your really not paying any attention. I have 2 lights when ign is on and switch is on, pump is activated.
One LED is next to my switch the second one is next to my CTS2 small flashing LED light when transferring fuel.

Thanks for sharing and for the detail. I know some guys that have gravity but have an electronic valve. The more i think about it... gravity does not have that much advantage, if any, over pumping outside of not having to pipe the blue smoke from the battery to the pump so it doesnt make sense to do it. Install a readily available pump and you could fix it on the road with simple hand tools if/when it does fail.

I'm trying to figure out the underneath photo. I see three objects and a bunch of hose and wiring/looms. Is the big object the pump and the small capacitor looking thing at the top the solenoid? Whats the other inline object? A filter?

3/8" fuel line from the aux tank thru fuel filter - fuel pump - normally closed solenoid - T- into the vent line to transfer fuel.
Most will T into the fill neck, but my AirDog return has taken up that space.
Also on the 1/4" vent line I ran it out - down with a 1/4" filter inline to keep whatever out.

I remember one person complaining that the bed of his truck had quiet a bit of diesel in it, sloshing around out of the vent line, he didn't run any fuel line out, he just left the fitting open.
Then giving bad reviews, the cause was his sloppy install.

Search for the best prices on whatever tank you go with.
I bought mine new 11/12/16 off of Amazon thru Northern tools for $722 and $62 shipping, Northern tools would sell out then it was around $950 $150 shipping.
I just kept a close eye daily when Northern listed it again.

I could have had a custom tank made locally, but it would have been $1200.00 plus parts needed and labor to install.
