Gooseneck/5th Wheel Package / B&W Tow & StowI've found out thru my course of nearly 40 years of driving awesome trucks, is it's best to leave them as designed. Put on bigger tires goes without saying of course.
There is only one company that makes one currently and it was just released about a month ago. Look up L5P DEF Relocation on google and that should help you find what you're looking for.This my first diesel truck, I purchased a 2018 2500HD LTZ Z71 with 12K miles. What are y’all thoughts on relocating the DEF tank or has anyone tackled this project, is it a good idea or not?
I have not done it but have seen 2 done on our ranch in NM. Going to catch a lot of flak for this but it is the truth. Love my 2020 but where I go the 2019 and older not a chance. I used to send feedback to GM on surveys that I love the trucks and the Duramax but the DEF tank I was too smart for that. Do not want to get stranded 27 miles from a gas station and 12 from a paved road.I'm not sure which year they added the extra protection ie skid plate but, if you are super worried about it I would install a aftermarket skid plate for it. I am the only one that I have ever seen that would admit to putting a hole in a def tank, did it on my 11 truck!!! I found a plate made by Ore-Fab (no longer in business) for $139.00 put it on and did not worry about it again. My 19 truck seems to be much better protected than the 11 was. Just my $0.02 your experience may vary.
