    I was wondering if there was any good ways on how to make a custom one because ever since we got my tacoma I haven't had any windshield wiper fluid due to the fact that I have no reservoir.
    And everywhere I look a new one costs at least $70, and I really don't want to pay that much for a piece of plastic.

    Have you tried a junk yard? Being that your truck had as much age as it does, it prob would be that difficult to find a junker somewhere.

    Back when we first got the truck (Before I could drive) my dad went to junkyards looking for various parts but never found one, either they were gone or in bad condition.
    I would be willing to try something like the Venom can, but maybe not that radical haha

    I did the Venom can because it was way thicker and stronger then any other can I could find.

    Yeah I can understand how you thought that, I have one sitting on top of my computer desk right now and they are pretty thick. How Exactly did you hook it up?

    I just drilled a hole as low as I could at the bottom of the can stuck the motor in there and jb welded all around it to hold it in place and prevent any leaks and ran the wires towards the back. And it worked perfect. I have another can that I am going to link it together with so I can have two cans instead of one.
