Check out Titan tanks... they are a direct inbody replacement tank. Mine now holds 52 gallons of diesel... I can cruise all day...

FPM, One of the first things I did when I bought the Duramax was get a TransferFlow 45 gallon replacement tank. I'd be surprised if they don't make something with more capacity for your Tundra. It hurts the wallet to fill it, but rarely do it more than once a month solo, and it's so great to go 330+mi R/T camping...and drive another 2 weeks before worrying! Drove the truck solo once from Phoenix to LA and back w/o fill up.

I'll live with the 26 gallon tank

I looked into replacing the tank last year. While I can't remember what manufacturer I looked at, I do remember that to buy one was an $800+ adventure; plus my time (and aggrivation-experience shows that things rarely go as the instructions say they will) involved with replacing the current one with it.

When towing, the 26 gallon tank will get me at least 200 (and most often more) miles. That's roughly four (or more) hours of driving. By then, it's time to potty anyway so I take care of both needs in one stop. At currrent diesel prices (over $4.00/gal here), a refueling stop is in the neighborhood of $100.00 for me. If I had one of those large capacity tanks, it would probably make me cry. Here at home, a tank of fuel lasts me a minimum of two weeks unless I've had to make some unplanned trips.
