Anybody have a ballpark cost on what it should be to get a Titan tank installed on a Mega cab?
Thank you for the tips. I am with you on your critical fuel comment!I have an auxiliary tank on my current truck. I went auxiliary tank route to add three additional filters and a fuel pump to polish fuel. I have helped, did the work, on two current Rams with Titan tanks. Had a titan tank in a previous truck a Dodge 2500. They are easy to put in relatively speaking. There are a ton of youtube videos to get a good idea about what to do. The trick is getting the truck up enough to be able to wiggle the tank out from underneath. Also, using ratchet straps to hold and lower one end at a time helps. As does making sure the stock tank is as empty as possible.
Watch the online videos, ask questions here and call Titan. Then decide if your skill level us up to par to get it done. No one will care about a better install when doing the work than you would on your own truck. You probably have 1000+ facebook friends. Have one or two help and lend support.
For me having extra fuel is critical. Its the difference between stopping at a sketchy station or driving for many more miles. In my current case i have triple the range now.
Thanks for the response. Good point and helping small businesses such as mechanics, $450 isn’t too bad but I think I might give it a shot regardless. The only tools I believe I’m lacking is a ratchet extension to get the straps on/off after taking a look..I paid almost $450 (including tax) to have my Titan replacement tank installed. Not cheap but I’m not set up to do that kinda work and mechanics gotta eat too. (Same outfit installed a Titan replacement tank in my ‘12 Ram and I never had any issues with it.)
+1. I agree and that’s why I quit patronizing quick lube facilities. The outfit that installed my fuel tank is listed on the Titan website as a Titan dealer, the only one within a hundred miles. I was happy with the installation they did on my ‘12 Ram 3500 and so far I’m happy with this one.I also agree with helping mechanics if they are good and care. My experience has me swearing off using most trades anymore. Need to have a relationship with a shop you trust. Otherwise most people feel entitled to your hard earned money for minimal effort...
