    Got tired of fixing cracks on the stock washer reservoir, so I removed it and put in this one I picked on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00495UQT2/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Very simple to install: An L bracket to mount it against fender, splice 2 wires (needed to add about 2' of wiring) hook up hoses, I used existing ones after flushing and blowing them out. You could put it where the original reservoir was with some minor changes, but I found the way I did it easier. It fits and works perfect, total cost...$20.75

    I don't what's going on in regards to you not seeing the pics, it comes up fine for me, these are all the photo I have and they are just different views of the same thing hope I'm doing this right

    This is where the original tank was, the new one would fit with an added bracket or two.

    That's a good cheap fix. My resevoir is cracked at the top and really brittle. Problem is I can mount this kit like you did, I have something else mounting in that spot.

    I'm pretty sure it will fit where old one went, just a different mounting needed, and 1 less splice.

    on mine because of the SAS I found out that a washer reservoir out of a jeep Cherokee fits right up by the firewall almost perfectly right in line with the wires that go to the sock one and right by the feed line for the washers.

    I have ABS there, but that area is also where I mounted the ARB compressor for my front locker. It's kinda crowded.

    Nice! Took mine out the other day because I noticed a few small cracks. Wrapped the neck with an adhesive drywall tape and coated it with resin to make a cast.
