THE TANK IS A GO!!! I received the following email today:

Hi Paul,

Management has approved the project to move forward. We have been waiting on an engineer to become available and I received an email from engineering today requesting a truck to start the initial investigation. So good news!



For ease of communication, I hope I can use you as my main contact for information to the group. This project has been fast-tracked but is still many months away from a completion date. If you share this, please ask everyone not to contact me directly as it is difficult to respond to so many people. My heart wants to, but my time does not allow it. Instead, I encourage them to submit their information/request here:



https://www.transferflow.com/suggestions



This is our website link to suggest a new product but is also the database we use to contact customers when a product they want becomes available. Please ask them to enter all the requested info, as we need to know what tank they are looking for.

I appreciate your help and passion for this project!

Kind regards,

Teri Barry
Sales Supervisor

When asked about what specifics she can give on the tank she replied:

No real specifics yet other than what I have previously shared. The overwhelming request from Ford owners is 2017-2021 short bed, crew cab. I think this is where engineering is starting. This does not rule out the long bed, but it is probably second to the short bed as the short bed has a much smaller OEM tank and is more prevalent.

I have requested to be named as the project leader so I can stay involved in driving this project – no specifics yet on that front either.

Here are the results of the survey Transfer Flow issued a month or so ago:

I shared the sentiment with Teri that a lot of people expressed, that the first question was kind of loaded, and that they would have chosen a larger capacity tank in the second question, if answering 'Yes' to the first question didn't make them skip the second, which asked which tank size was most desired.

I am guessing it will be a few months until I hear anything else from Teri, but I wanted to at least put this info out! I don't see why they can't design a tank that would fit both CCSB and CCLB trucks, but that's what it sounds like. Maybe all of you CCLB SCLB owners can use the suggestion form on the transfer flow website to show a desire for one tank that fits both cab configurations.

Wow that is awesome news! I had a feeling when she contacted a few of us after inquiring that this sounded promising, Of course having been shown a significant amount of interest through this and other forums we gave them what they needed to justify investing in a significant project like this. Can't wait to see what they have to offer.
 
I would consider this if it was at least 20 gallons more. For the prices they ask, 10 gallons is a no go. Couple of Jerry cans in the back can give me that, and they won't take up a ton of space.
 
This is awesome news! Like everyone else, I hope they are able to get more than a 10 gallon increase. 1 thing at a time though - at least the project is a go!!
 
Interesting that i got an email from Teri asking about my interest, but I did not get that survey. Hmmm

Anyway good to hear something may happen with this project.

The survey was posted in a previous thread on the topic, as far as I know we all just clicked through there.
 
I'm hoping for 50 gal min. with no change in ground clearance. It may be a stretch but I think a lot of us would opt in if they can pull that off.
 
Over 55 gallons (hopefully 60) is a go. 45 gallons is not worth $2k+

Agree on the first question being a bit loaded. It is like asking a starving person if they want a bite of a cheeseburger. Then later asking if they would prefer a whole cheeseburger.
 
In an email I addressed The fact that many people did not feel $2,000 would be worth an extra 11 gallons, she said that originally of her management wanted that since they already had a 45 gallon F-150 tank, but that she is pushing for 60 gallons.

The survey wasn't emailed out to anybody, I disseminated it for them on various forums.

I agree. I'd be happy with 50 if it meant no change in ground clearance. Of course 60 would be better, but they're not miracle workers. Something will have to give if the tank gets too big. If the ground clearance decreases by much, I'll have to strongly consider how I want to proceed.
 
So awesome that they are going forward. I’d buy a 45 gal or above in a heart beat. I spend a lot of time in really remote areas and any amount of extra gas in the tank would be awesome. My needs are somewhat unique as I have a slide in camper and hauling extra gasoline is a pain. I would prefer 50 gal with no loss of ground clearance over a 60 gal and a loss of ground clearance. 50 gal is almost 50% more than stock....

I mean, it's 39% more than stock - which is way better, no doubt. But I would sacrifice an inch to get that 60 gallon mark.

I'm sure there's a counter-story, but if I were to bottom out, the points of contact that I've traditionally experienced are the front and rear bumpers, the front diff, and along the front half of the powertrain including parts of the cab.

I've never seen anyone bottom truck of this size directly in front of that rear axle. If that were to happen, it's the axle that lacked clearance, not the left side of your under bed.

16 is 47% of 34? ...You should have seen the bottom of my 46 gal transfer flow tank on my Tundra when I sold it. Lol. But you are right- an inch or so drop wouldn’t be a big deal. I asked transfer flow if I should get a skid plate for my tundra tank. They said their tank IS a a skid plate. A skid plate would just make it lower and probably wouldn’t be a durable as the tank itself. Thick solid steel. It really was bomb proof.

You're looking at the math wrong. 16 / 34 is .47 - so 47% is a correct statement, but also true is 34 / 50 equals 68%. This means a 50 gallon tank is 32% larger than the stock tank. Why I posted 39% is a mystery... I had my head up my ass. That 60 gallon tank though? It provides a sweet, sweet, 44% increase over stock.

Like abqbw above, I'll buy anything larger than 45, but I want that 60 gallon tank.
