Here’s a few pics of how a stock 34 gal tank looked under my F350 then a S&B 60 gal I installed. Hangs about 1” 3/4 lower.

It was easy. Just a little pointer. Run your truck as close to empty so it’s not heavy lowering down and the fill hose clamp is probably going to be facing the wrong way to loosen the clamp because they put it on before the bed was on from the factory and DONT use a impact to loosen the tank straps because you will break the tap holding the nut on top. Use a long cheater n ratchet they have lock tite on the threads.
 
@GT350 Have you been able to fill up at any of the high-flow diesel pumps? The video Colt (from Colts way YT channel) said that once he switched to the S&B, the high-flow pumps wouldnt fill the tank. Likely something to do with back pressure.

I would hate to go from filling 34 gal fast to 60 gal slowly...
 
mddeff, I haven’t found a truck stop pump that I can let rip. That said even at half speed they probably fill faster than regular gas station pumps. It is what it is - more time to pick my nose. A big plus is that you don’t have to stop and restart the pump three times.

To be honest I seen the video you talking about and I’ve only filled it up once so far at a regular station and it was the same as my 34. But I’ll let you know when I fill at a truck stop. Hopefully not anytime soon with the price of diesel now🤮🤮😝

The solution is to not install the check valve that S&B provides that goes in the filler neck.
 
In regards to fill ups at fuel islands … I can’t run the pump wide open or it will stop the flow of fuel. However, I could still run the pump at a lower rate and fill fine and that slower rate was still faster than most regular pumps I’ve encountered. So it’s really not an issue for me.
 
Is the check valve required to install? What is the purpose of it?
It’s a safety nanny is all, in the event the truck rolls over it won’t dump the entire contents out of the filler neck, if the fuel cap manages to pop off somehow.

So not a big deal to leave off? Since the factory doesn't have one in it
 
I think the filler neck diameter is the limiting factor according
to Bernoulli.
 
Have you guys been able to get your fuel gauge to work accurately? Mine shows full at about 50 gallons or so and I’ve noticed down at the lower levels of the tank it’s not as accurate as well. It’s not a deal breaker, but it’d be cool to have more confidence on what my actual range is. I updated the truck with forescan using the drop down menu. If I remember right I think there’s a few ways to make that change, not sure if that’s what caused the issue or if it’s a problem with the range of motion on the factory float they now have you reinstall.
 
My buddy put the 60 gal S&B in his and he also cannot fill at full speed at a truck stop and he too has not been able to get his truck set via Forscan to calculate the fuel tank correctly.

I have the 55 gal Atlas and I can let the pump rip at a truck stop and fill at full speed (15 gallons a minute at the truck stop that I use) My truck also reads the tank accurately.

This may be two positives for someone looking at getting a tank in the future.

Depends on what you want though, 5 more gallons is nice!
 
"Have you guys been able to get your fuel gauge to work accurately?"

I ran mine down to 11 miles til empty in October and coasted into a truck stop. There was about a gallon left. I was towing so that agrees with the 11 MTE more or less (I avg 12.5-13).

I believe there are 2 settings in Forscan that need to be changed. From what I have read, the forum members who have made both Forscan changes are not having any issues. Here is the link https://forscan.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=14698
 
I’ve been filling at 50 miles to empty regularly, and regularly it was only taking about 52 gallons to fill. Ran it to zero the other day. Hit zero with 2 miles to go to the gas station. I was confident I had gas, but my OCD was making me sweat!! Still only took 54 gallons to fill.

As a side note - my buddy was teasing me saying it would take 10+ min to fill this gigantic tank. I decided to time myself. I didn’t rush. I have to swipe twice to fill. Regular gas station, two swipes, took 6 min 45 sec total to fill the truck. I’m okay with that.
