Reese, yes the balance pipe outlet is at the low point on the back side of the tank.

I'm not prepared to abandon hope on this yet. even if it means having the tank modified.

Here you go Mark. The Safari Equipe tank has interference with the cage legs bolted to the chassis outriger. If you're up for notching the tank further, then you could make it work but then you could lose the structural integrity of the tank. Your best bet is to fab a tank yourself or have Stef's performance in NJ fab one up for you (they're the best in the business when it comes to dry sump tanks - they did the dry sump tank on my race car and it is a work of art).

I think a gravity aux tank is an awesome way to extend range. I was just too lazy to follow through on a non-off the shelf solution. Maybe at a later date I'll motivate myself...

Three more pictures to show the intereference. This is for when we tried to test fit the aux tank and the cage. Tank positioning shows the lack of gap to the cage legs.

how much gap was it? was it the bolts themselves or the cage mount? did you test it with running the bolts backwards with the heads on the insides instead of the normal outside, so only the bolt head height was involved?

Alternatively, if I got the tank and had it modified, would 1/2" off the end be enough?

FWIW. The tank shown in the photos is not the Safari -Equip tank I purchased and sketched. It does not have the "notch" at the RHS rear of the tank. Refer to the PDF's of the Mantec fitting instructions and the sketches

Good point Dennis! I just looked back at the Mantec instructions, and noticed it actually states for a Defender 110 with rollcage! I know which one I'm getting now!

Interference was with the cage mount. If it was just the bolts I would have reversed them and shortened them if possible to avoid contact.

Dennis, good catch on the difference with the Safari Equipe aux tank. Would be interesting to see if the notch on that tank actually clears the cage leg. If it does, you have a winner!

Here are the photos. One consideration the NAS rear lights are located just above the rear crossmember. My wifeís D-90 is a 97 and has the round lights not the square ones like the NAS 110 and 94 D- 90. I canít determine if the light bulb receptacles protrude beyond the crossmember.
