I've got a 2018 RAM diesel, dually, crew cab, long bed. It is also blessed with a 32 gallon fuel tank.
Has anyone replaced that tank with a larger one? I'm looking at Titan and S&B brands. The S&B is 60 gallons so I'm leaning that direction.
Only issue is the Torklift mounted on the front drivers side. It looks like it could be a tight fit up against the tank.
Has anyone done this swap with Torklifts?
Thanks in advance...

I just figure I need to pee or stretch my legs every few hundred miles. Why not do that while filling up?

Because it's the strongest bladder that determines the stops, not the weakest.

Some areas or states have much higher fuel costs. If you can drive through those areas rather than fuel up there, your flexibility stills allows you to make stops for other reasons.

My only question is whether you have sufficient payload to carry that additional fuel.

I suggest you contact "Transfer Flow" in Chico Calif. and talk to them about replacement diesel fuel tanks. Great company and quality work. They have many choices of tanks. I have bought 3 different tanks from Transfer Fuel on different tanks and they have worked great. They can install a new tank in 1 day.

I HAD a Titan 51 gallon in my last truck and loved it... It gave me the option to fill when I wanted to fill... Its not always about the bladder....The Titan OEM replacement fits in the same location as the factory, OEM... BUT I cannot speak for the Torklift.......

I had the Titan 55 gallon midship replacement on my 2019 Ram 3500 DRW, and used the Torklift frame ties with no issues. The 2018 is supposed to be slightly different, but I'm not sure exactly how.

Yeah you got a point but I can pull off on the shoulder, go around to the curb side, open both doors, and pee away with traffic whizzing by.
