To sump or not to sump???

Hey there im going to be doing a FASS or Airdog 2 here pretty quick. Is it the best bet to go with a Hellmans Sump Kit or just use the factory pickup. Whats the pros and cons and what are the noticable differences with this?

Re: To sump or not to sump???

use the search you should find some info.

the factory pickup is not going to provide enough flow if your doing the big fass, the sump is a better route if you want to get as much flow as possible.

also, Truck Source Diesel offers a sump that is a little different than hellmans. just to keep your options open.

Re: To sump or not to sump???

if your doing a big fass it will come with a bigger pickup tube. im sure airdog is the same. a sump is a good idea if you want to spend the cash. your going to drop the tank either way.

Re: To sump or not to sump???

Silly question, but.....

Have any of you guys with sumps ever been DOTd? Around the stock yards they like to dip your tank for red diesel while you're in the auction. It wouldn't be a stretch for them to look at tank config. while they're at it.

Anyone ever have trouble?
