Looking to swap out my gas tank for a larger 60 gallon. Anyone suggest an installer in the nyc area(Long Island, New Jersey or surrounding areas). Have called a couple of places but got the sense it’s not something they’ve done. I have an f250 diesel. Thanks

Will it hang under or are you considering a tank in the bed ? When talking to installers say " diesel " , many will not work on gas .

Figure out what brand of tank you want. There are only a few and I doubt any of them make a 60 gallon tank that is a replacement for the original. You will have to get a tank that goes in the bed to get one that big. On the manufactures web site they usually have a list of installers.

S & B and Titan make 56 and 60 gallon replacement tanks for F series trucks ($1,200+). If you have a motorcycle jack, they are not hard to drop and swap.

A. He said it’s diesel.
B. He said “swap out.”

These guys did a 60gal on their F250. It is a nice clean way of doing it and keeps the bed free.

I'm sure they got a special deal for promoting it. No way I could choke down the price. I'm sure if you follow up with the manufacturer, they could recommend an installer.

Maybe I'm wring but I thought the feds do not allow in the bed gasoline tanks, diesel only. Gas is too flammable.
