Video Transcript for DeeZee Truck Bed Auxiliary Tank Installation - 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 3500

Today on our 2014 Chevy Silverado 3500 CrewCab, we'll be installing the DZ truck-bed auxiliary tank, part number DZ91752X in conjunction with the DZ connector kit of auxiliary tank, part number Dz97960. To begin our install, we'll first go ahead and put our tank into position. We'll be putting it in the truck bed up against the bulk head near the cab. If you are using this tank as an auxiliary to pump into another piece of equipment, you would simply center it in the bed and secure it. However, we'll be using it as a transfer tank. We'll first go ahead and remove the auxiliary tank plug. For this application, we'll be using a large handled shut off valve. A couple of these fittings we're purchased at our local hardware store.

We've got a right angle valve that will come out of the tank to a coupling that will connect the right angle to the shut off. We can then use the barb fitting supplied with our install kit on the other side of our shut off to connect the auxiliary hose. In between each of our connection points, we're going to go ahead and use some thread dope, which is similar to thread tape only in liquid form. Once we have out fittings assembled, we'll go ahead and secure them to the tank. Now, with out shut off secured to the tank, we'll go ahead and put it back in position. As we put it in position, we'll make sure we push the tank all the way over to the passenger side to create as much space between the side of the tank and the pickup side here on the driver side.

This will allow easier assess to the shut off valve. Once in position, we'll go ahead and mark where the drain will go down through the pickup bed. Once it's marked, we'll go ahead and drill it out with pilot hole and then check the location as it comes through the bed. NOTE: Be careful not to drill into any electrical wires, hoses, or lines. Once we have it checked, we'll then go ahead and open it up to 3/4" as per the instructions. Now, with out large hole drilled out, we'll go ahead and install the hose onto the tank.

We can make it easier to install and see, we'll go ahead and pull the tank up out of the pickup bed where we can slide the worm gear clamp provided with out install kit onto the hose and the hose onto the nipple coming off our shut off valve. Once we have it installed, we'll go ahead and tighten it down. Now, with it tightened down, we'll take the other end of the hose that was supplied with out install kit and feed it through our predrilled hole and down underneath the pickup bed. As we feed it in, we'll put the tank back into position. Now, with out tank back in place, we'll need to secure the tank to the pickup bed. There are a total of 4 attachment points, two on each side. First, we'll go ahead and drill out the bottom attachment point here for the driver side.

We're going to go ahead and slide the U-shaped spacer block in around the attachment point here so that when we tighten down the hardware, it won't smash the bed corrugation. Once we have the hole drilled out, we'll go ahead and put our bolt and lock nut in position putting the bolt down through the tank attachment point through our predrilled hole in the bed and securing it underneath with a washer and nut. We'll go ahead and tighten them down. Then, we'll move over the passenger side and repeat the same process. Now, with both sides secured, begin to install the filler T. The filler T will go inline with the manufacturers fill tube line. We'll find a suitable location and cut the fill line in half. We'll then take the rollover valve and install it into the metal T that will go inline with the manufacturers fill tube. Once again, we'll use some thread paste on this fitting as it goes into the fill tube T. Now, we'll go ahead and put our fill tube in position. We'll use the large worm gear clamps provided with the install kit to secure it. Next, we'll take the hose that we ran from our tank and run it to the fill tube T where we installed the rollover valve. Mark it and cut off any excess. We'll then use another worm gear clamp to secure the hose to the rollover valve that goes into the fill tube T. Once we have that secured, we're now ready to go ahead and test our new auxiliary tank for leaks. We'll verify that we don't have any leaks between the shut off and tank. We can then go ahead and check for leaks all the way from the tank to the fill tube. That does it for the install of our DZ truck-bed auxiliary tank, part number DZ91752X in conjunction with the DZ truck bed auxiliary tank kit, part number Dz97960 for our 2014 Chevy Silverado 3500 CrewCab. .

Easy install on chevy 2015 2500hd duramax. It took me about 10 minutes to install. Only thing no instructions in the box. I have installed one before and you have to mount the valve pointing up on the filler neck not on the side like the video or the float valve on the fuel fill will not shut off ever. Good product will buy again. 589545

  • Can Fuel Pump Be Added to DeeZee Auxiliary Fuel Line Kit DZ97960
    DeeZee Connector Kit # DZ97960 is designed to make a gravity feed connection between an auxiliary diesel tank like # DZ91752X and your vehicle's diesel tank. This kit is not intended to connect the aux tank to your engine fuel line but to your standard diesel fuel tank. There is no reason you could not add a suitable diesel fuel pump to the setup to speed up the flow from tank to tank, but since the auxiliary tank is usually much higher up than the vehicle tank the gravity flow usually...

  • Does Connector Kit For DeeZee Truck Bed Auxiliary Tank Have Automatic Shutoff
    The Connector Kit, part # DZ97960 is designed to work with an auxiliary tank like part # DZ91752X. This system has a gravity feed to transfer diesel fuel from your auxiliary tank to your OEM tank but there is no automatic shutoff. I called my contact at DeeZee and they told me that some trucks have a sensor and if the valve is left open all the time and allowed to empty fuel into the primary tank, you may get a code or check engine light. As you can see in the attached photo, there...

  • Does the # DZ97960 Automatically Shut Off When Full
    The part # DZ97960 will not automatically shut off when the tank is full. You would need to keep an eye on the tanks as you are filling them if the pumps do not automatically shut off when they sense the tank being full. Overfilling the tank would cause fuel to spill.

  • Does the Connector Kit for DeeZee Truck Bed Auxiliary Tank # DZ97960 Have Automatic Shutoff
    The Connector Kit for DeeZee Truck Bed Auxiliary Tank # DZ97960 that you referenced does have a gravity feed to transfer diesel fuel from your auxiliary tank to your OEM tank but there is no automatic shutoff. The kit includes a fitting with a manually operated valve, as shown in the linked photo.

  • How Does Connector Kit # DZ97960 Work with Auxiliary Fuel Tank # DZ91752X
    The Connector Kit, # DZ97960, is designed to be used with an auxiliary tank like part # DZ91752X and uses a gravity feed system to transfer fuel. When the valve is open, the auxiliary tank would then feed the main tank on your 2007 Ford F-250. The valve on the auxiliary tank should not remain open. Doing so could cause issues with the vehicles computer system as well as possible pressure build up in the tank. Instead you will want to wait until you are stopped to open the valve and...

  • Can DeeZee Connector Kit be Used with a Transfer Tank with a Pump in a 2013 Ford Super Duty

  • How Does DeeZee Truck Bed Auxiliary Tank Install to 2017 Ford F-350 Diesel
    DeeZee is the manufacturer of the Connector Kit for DeeZee Truck Bed Auxiliary Tank # DZ97960 and they test fit this on your 2017 Ford F-350 and found that it fit and worked well. While we haven't done the test fit DeeZee has and they would be more of an authority on the fit of their products since they are the ones who designed it and give the official fit list. From the research I did on your truck the filler neck should be a hard line that feeds into a rubber line where this would attach...

  • Flow Rate of Gravity Feed Connector Kit for Auxiliary Tank in Gallons Per Minute
    The Connector Kit for DeeZee Truck Bed Auxiliary Tank - Later Model Chevy/GMC, Dodge, and Ford # DZ97960 has a flow rate that is very slow. A customer stated that with the kit alone it takes about 10 minutes to transfer 1 gallon of diesel fuel due to the 90 degree angle. For a faster transfer, you may be interested in the Rotary Pump for Liquid Transfer Tanks - 10 Gallons Per Minute # 123000-06 which will shorten that time to just under 4 minutes total.

  • Replacement Connector Kit to Install DeeZee Fuel Tank in a 2011 Chevy Silverado
    Since you have a 2010 Chevy Silverado you would need to replace the connector kit that came with your tank (the # DZ97960 that you referenced), with the part # DZ97961 instead. If you check out the design of the two part numbers mentioned you can see that either is designed to fit different setups due to the change of the vehicles in 2012.

  • Troubleshooting Connector Kit for DeeZee Truck Bed Auxiliary Tank DZ97960 Overfilling
    I spoke to my contact at DeeZee about your situation and his response was to make sure you are sitting still with the engine off for the valve to work properly. If you have the engine running it can cause damage to the truck.

  • Thread and Fuel Line Size Dimension for the DeeZee Connector Kit # DZ97960
    The fuel line that comes with the Connector Kit # DZ97960 that you referenced is 5/16 inch and the fitting that you referenced that threads into a fuel tank like the part # DZ91752X is 5/8 of an inch. I confirmed this with my contact at DeeZee.

  • Troubleshooting Auxiliary Fuel Tank Over Filling the Primary Fuel Tank
    It doesn't sound like an auxiliary tank issue but rather an issue with the regular fuel tank, however I do recommend checking the fuel line between just in case. Normally that leak is due to a seal around the send unit, fuel pump, or pressure sensor. This is most likely the issue because you are only having a leak when your regular tank is full. If you find there are issues with the line or connection between your tanks, I recommend the DeeZee connector kit # DZ97960. This will have...

  • Dimensions of Aluminum Tube Included in Dee Zee Connector Kit DZ97960 for Truck Bed Auxiliary Tanks

The raw aluminum tube's outer diameter is 1.5-inches (38mm). It's end-to-end length is 4.5-inches (114mm). The tube ends' inner diameter is 1.34-inches (34mm) and the inner diameter of the threaded center hole is 0.75-inch (19.5mm). Each of these dimensions is noted on the linked photo that I prepared for you. I also included an install...

    For your 2017 Ford F-350, I recommend the DeeZee Truck Bed Auxiliary Tank - Later Model Chevy/GMC, Dodge, and Ford, # DZ97960. This connector kit is a confirmed fit for your vehicle. This kit is for use with a gravity feed tank and is for diesel fuel use only. It is designed to work with tanks like the DeeZee Truck Bed Auxiliary Tank - Rectangle - Aluminum - 38 Gallon, # DZ91752X, but it will work with tanks with a 3/8 inch drainage plug.

  • Recommended Fuel Feed Kit for Transfer Tank on 1992 Ford F-350
    The gravity feed kit # DZ97960 is not a fit for your 1992 Ford F-350 7.3L. You can use the FloTool Multipurpose Transfer Pump # FT10803 to bypass an electric option when transferring small quantities, but I recommend the DeeZee Rotary Pump for Liquid Transfer Tanks # 123000-06 for a manual transfer. For an electric option, I recommend the DeeZee Electric Pump for Liquid Transfer Tanks - 15 Gallons Per Minute # 110000-107.

    The DeeZee Truck Bed Auxiliary Tank # DZ91752X is designed to be used by itself for a gravity feed connection with the truck's tank (by way of the Connector Kit # DZ97960), and since the tank will be much higher than the truck's tank this typically provides a sufficient flow rate. With that in mind there's also no reason it couldn't be used with an existing pump to help speed up the flow. I have attached a short video demonstration on this tank below in which our installer actually...

The toolbox fits under tonneau cover, mounts at the front, back or middle of the bed, and is elevated for full access to the truck bed floor. The dimensions are 55.38" long x 22.25" wide x 14.75" deep. I was unable to find a transfer tank tool box combo under 18 inches tall. All the combos that fit your 2015 Ford F-350 Super Duty are taller than what you want.

  • Comparing Transfer Tank to Auxiliary Tank for 2017 Ford F-450
    I reached out to the manufacturer and the DZ91752 is a transfer tank meaning its purpose is to transfer fuel from the station to the jobsite. The # DZ91752x is an auxiliary tank meaning its purpose is to be a second fuel tank for your vehicle itself. The function is the difference between the two as the dimensions and materials are the same. If you will be using the Auxilary tank, you will also want the Connector Kit for DeeZee Truck Bed Auxiliary Tank - Later Model Chevy/GMC, Dodge,...

  • Will DeeZee Truck Bed Auxiliary Tank # DZ91752X and Kit # DZ97960 Fit 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
    The DeeZee Truck Bed Auxiliary Tank, # DZ91752X, and Connector Kit, # DZ97960, will work for your 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD provided it is a diesel and has the 8 ft bed, a standard 6-1/2 ft bed, or the crew cab with 5-1/2 ft bed. I spoke with my contact at DeeZee and in order to fill the truck tank, you will need to be stopped with the engine turned off. You can plan on it taking 15 to 20 minutes to fill a 25 to 35 gallon tank using the gravity feed setup. The fill valve can not...

  • Transfer Tank/Toolbox With Gravity Feed for 1999 Ford F250
    The # DZ92647 transfer tank/tool box combo would fit your F250 just fine. The bed at the front is 64-3/4 inches wide, and the tank/box is 46-3/4 inches wide. We also offer a gravity feed connector kit, part # DZ97960. Keep in mind, a transfer tank should only be connected to the fuel tank of a Diesel truck, it's not meant for gasoline powered vehicles.
