    I am looking to get a bigger gas tank - got some big trips planned ahead of me. I heard some go in the bed?

    What do you guys know and is the best option plus sizes of tanks and etc?
    Thanks so much y'all.

    I looked at Titan auxiliary tanks, http://titanfueltanks.com/products/sidekick-tank but decided to go with 3 5-gal. Eagle safety cans https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000...F8&qid=1512086363&sr=1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65 stored in a fuel proof box I tie in between the wheel wells - if Any of the cans leak, I will not lose as much fuel had I bought a single larger tank. Safer that way, too.

    ^^^^ What he said. I had a 60 gallon OEM replacement http://www.transferflow.com tank in my 2001 Dodge Ram. My father-in-law has their 100 gallon in bed secondary tank in his GMC Sierra for pulling their 5th wheel.
