Looking good Randy, did you get to paint everything? I just have to finish some body work, a couple of minor things and then it's time to start bending tube...The end is within sight!!!

Thanks Brett. This is a 10 gallon tank BWoverland.com is selling. Rhino lined on the outside and double walled steel on the base (with internal baffles). And doesn't force you to remove the storage in your passenger seat.

I'm glad to hear that with it, I'm only missing 2 gallons over the euro tank...

Randy, are you going with a NAS fuel tank as well?

Well duh.....

Who would put gas in a side saddle tank? Actually the tank would be very well protected. With the slider, and if you were overly concerned, adding another skid plate. The thing would be more bullet proof than the rear tank is.

But I'm only putting diesel or maybe veggie oil in it...

Hey Dave

What happen to those pictures of your new roof liner? Did you get it installed? I'd really like to see what you did with the overhead console.

David, your truck is looking sweet. I love how the Galv. frame looks with the blue body. SImply awesome

Randy I don't know how to tell you this, but you might need to reconsider the sliver for a different color. it just doesn't look right

I'm liking that silver Randy. I might have to copy cat you on my new rig with the color .... though, I guess there'll be enough differences between them to not get them confused. Of course, painting is probably at the bottom of my list right now .... but, I have managed to acquire the majority of my driveline including engine, tranny, & t-case & the chassis design is nailed down.
