    A 35 gallon tank...cause I can barely afford to put gas in my truck as it is lol. Pretty cool though. But I feel like getting a skid for one is gonna cost ya.

    From what I understand he is developing a skid as well. No word yet on cost or availability. Basically the guy is building it for himself. If enough interest exists he may build more. If you want one, you'd be wise to let him know.

    Wouldn't have been easier to build a tank the size of the spare tire and got roughly the same volume and put more weight centered? My old suburban had its tank back there. It was like 100 million gallons or something.

    It isn't a matter of wanting one because I do lol but it is probably gonna be pretty pricey.

    This is a good point. This is gonna cause a huge "taco lean" when filled completely.

    Exactly my thinking, 35 Gallons of fuel on one side if the truck is about 210lbs. The Taco Lean is bad enough as it is. A centered tank would make much more sense design wise. Stress on the cross-members that tie the frame rails together isn't going to be nice either with all the weight on one side.

    And if you do a lot of wheeling I feel like you will need to upgrade your rear suspension to accommodate all that extra weight. I could be wrong.

    I read through a bit of his build and the reason he didn't go for an auxiliary tank where the spare was (he talked about this specifically as an option) was because it creates a lot more problems with adding additional fuel pumps etc. He's trying to figure out what to do about the lean.. possibly adding another leaf to one side or possibly bags but this creates an over sprung situation when the tanks empty. Plus by using the original location for the gas tank he's able to use all the original parts so he'll be able to get a reasonably accurate fuel tank level which is a problem with aux tanks.

    .
    I would imagine that airbags with a self leveling kit would solve this problem
