IMPORTANT NOTE : If you are planning additional performance upgrades that may require you to run a larger than stock fuel pump, or if you are wanting to do a Fuel Bowl Delete at a later date, we HIGHLY RECOMMEND considering one of our PRE/POST FUEL FILTER KITS. They cost a little more up front, but the Pre/Post kits have a clear and easy upgrade path to configurations that support OEM Fuel Bowl Deletes and Larger Fuel Injectors. The "Standard" Pre/Post kit is a HUTCH MOD on Steroids, giving you pump relocation as well as all of the filtration necessary to run a bowl delete. The "Sump" and "5/8 Pickup" Pre/Post kits set you up with larger than stock supply lines from the tank, so you are ready to go when you want to run a larger pump, without needing to drop the tank again. If you are planning to stick with your OEM fuel pump and OEM in-valley fuel filter, the kit on this page will save you some money.

The Driven Diesel Fuel Tank / Pre-Pump Kit (commonly referred to as the "Hutch Mod") is the first step in the fuel system upgrade process. This kit includes all of the parts necessary to eliminate "air leaks" in the fuel circuit before the electric fuel pump (suction side) and add additional fuel filtration. Air in diesel fuel causes noisy operation and can damage the fuel injectors. The base kit fits both F250/350 Super Duty Trucks and Excursions (see below for extended wheelbase vehicles). This kit is ideal for owners wanting the benefits of the "Hutch Mod" while still keeping their engine fuel system mostly stock and retaining the OEM fuel filter bowl.

This kit includes:
• Extended Fuel Tank Pickup Tube Made in the USA!
• Extended Fuel Tank Return Tube Made in the USA!
• 15' New 3/8" Fuel Line From Tank to Pump
• Optional 25' of Hose Total (see note below)
• Driven Diesel Billet Fuel Filter Head Made in the USA!
• Baldwin Fuel Filter / Water Separator Made in the USA!
• Driven Diesel Heavy Duty S.S. Custom Filter Mount Made in the USA!
• Complete Hardware Package including All Fittings, Nuts, Bolts and Washers
• Installation Instructions

Made in the USA! Denotes Items that are 100% MADE IN THE USA!

NOTE: Some CAB AND CHASSIS / LONG WHEELBASE trucks may require more than our standard 15' of hose. If you are using this kit on a Cab and Chassis or other vehicle with a "behind the axle" fuel tank, please take a measurement from the fuel tank to the fuel pump (along the frame, the way the hose would route) and confirm whether the standard 15' hose length will work for you, or if you need the longer 25' length.

This kit is only rated for B20 Bio-Diesel. This is primarily due to the B20 rating Baldwin places on their filters. We are not aware of any appropriate pre-pump style filters that will work with higher concentrations of Bio-Diesel. If you are running Bio-Diesel, please be mindful of your filter service intervals and periodically check your hoses for signs of damage from the fuel.

NOTE: We DO NOT OFFER this kit without the filter due to lack of interest from customers and the high importance of a quality pre-pump filter.

This kit is NOT required with installations utilizing an AirDog or FASS.

VAN OWNERS LOOK HERE!!! : This kit was originally designed for the Super Duty Pickup and Excursion, but can be retrofitted to the E-Series van. The van fuel tank has a baffled pan around the fuel pickup assembly in the fuel tank that interferes with the extended return, and the installation instructions were written for a Pickup/Excursion. If you wish to use this kit in your van, you will NOT be able to use the extended return tube, and your installation may differ somewhat from the instructions due to the location of the van fuel tank and differences in the van frame (the kit does fit). If you have an extended length van, or you simply want to be sure you won't have any issues, we recommend ordering the optional longer hose length, as the vans have the fuel tank behind the rear axle like the cab and chassis trucks do. Also, van fuel tanks have a liner in them that is notorious for a condition called "Delamination". Delamination is a problem with the fuel tank and has nothing to do with the installation of this product. If you purchase this kit and install it in a van, you are doing so with the understanding that any issues with tank delamination are not the responsibility of Driven Diesel or Strictly Diesel.

We make every attempt possible to source and use as much U.S. made product/material as we possibly long as doing so doesn't sacrifice the quality of the final product.
