Probably only another 250 lbs. when full.
Try going up to 170gals, $800 fills......good times..... I already dread filling the current tank, since it takes a little more than $100 to fill just it.....
If you raise the bed, its not rocket surgery. Watch for the rub points i mention in that link.Was it an easy install?
Its FRIEKIN awesomeSeriously though, the bigger range is awesome.
Good grief. I had to swipe 3 times to fill up 62 gals. Talk about accelerated credit card wearTry going up to 170gals, $800 fills......good times.
It would be like having two 125lb passengers riding with you. Even if they're both on one side of the truck (cab or bed), you'll never notice the difference...especially in a 3/4 tonthanks for the replies, guys--if there are any others i'd appreciate the feedback. All i could think about was if I threw 250 lbs of whatever in the back of the truck, would i notice it, especially when i got behind the wheel. My thought was that i would, but that's coming from a guy who only up until 4 months or so always drove 1/2 ton trucks. So maybe the 2500's really do take that extra weight with a smile.
Diesel is about 7lbs/gallon and you are adding an extra 35 gallons, so 250lbs worth of axle load. As long as you take this into account in the GCVWR and dont mind paying the penalty in reduce accelleration and fuel economy, dont think there should be an issue.Hey there, just curious if anyone out who's done a large diesel tank upgrade on the early duramax trucks can report how stance of truck or driving experience changed after putting such a large amount of weight under the belly of the truck? I can't seem to find any feedback about this. 62 gallons of diesel obviously weighs alot. Whether it's an s&b tank or a titan, if you've done an upgrade or can report something about this i'd appreciate it. Am thinking of putting one on my crew cab short bed truck--the extended range sounds so nice...but if that addt'l weight is gonna make my truck look or feel like i'm carrying a small cow around in the back of the truck all the time, i may hold off. Thanks guys!
Diesel is ~7.5 lbs per US gal, so you're about 450 lbs for the 62 gal tank, plus the weight of the tank. Many people add aux tanks to 2500s then can't figure out why they're way over their CGVWR when towing.Probably only another 250 lbs. when full.
I subtracted the approx existing capacity as I thought he was replacing a tank not adding? I agree people seem to think that weight does not matter, but it really does.Diesel is ~7.5 lbs per US gal, so you're about 450 lbs for the 62 gal tank, plus the weight of the tank.
