    Too costly. Aftermarket is the path to take.

    The install is straight forward and bolts in the factory location using the factory sending unit, spring the extra cash and have them coat it for you with the bedliner material

    The 3rd Gen Chilton Manuals aren't out yet but here's what I could pull from the 2013 manual.

    Do you install it yourself? If yes was it pretty ez. Or did you have it installed? If yes do you mind saying what you were charged to install it?

    Old thread resurrection.

    Interstate travel without fuel stops.

    It's happening. I'm excited.

    46gl Transferflo tank for the win!

    Free install with recalled fuel pump.:cool:

    Edit: Not free, paid for 1hr of service.
    They did try to charge me for the TSB reflash. I balked and they took it off. Turns out they wrote it up as warranty and not recall. Semantics. I'm used to playing this game so no foul. It's a dealership after all. I go there for the tech. He's a 2nd gen owner and skilled/certified.

    Putting the factory 38 gallon tank in would be expensive if you bought a brand new tank. The 38 gallon equipped trucks have been around long enough that you can find them at the junk yard. I got a 38 gallon tank out of a truck that was totaled with only 700 miles on it for $250. I love the upgrade.
