    20# Co2 Tank came in... little bigger than I thought lol :D

    [​IMG]

    And it doesn't fit in my power tank aluminum bracket either so I need a new bracket now. 20# tank is 8" diameter, 10# and 15# are 7" diameter. Anyone want a deal on an aluminum powertank bracket? $30 shipped for the $40 bracket!

    Bought Olive drab already :D Gonna match the new storage setup back there, it'll look good I promise. I didn't want the tank to get hot being black. That much pressure to begin with, then add a potential temp increase of 60° didn't seem like a good combo for me.

    The shifter on the forward case looks like it could have been an easy mount to the t-case. Is it a strait shot as it looks or are there a bunch of bends below the trans tunnel?

    An fj case is very high on my want to do list.

    This truck has come a long way since I last saw it at wind rock.

    I clocked the crawler CW (most only clock the t-case) so the shifter was already "directed" to the side of the auto-trans shifter, but there's still a bend or two, but nothing like the twin sticks.

    I will represent for sure, you won't be disappointed if I get chosen!
