Auxiliary interior mounted tank

Bought this tank thinking I would mount it in the Sanky for camping.
It fits like it was made for the 110 Station Wagon and even clears the seat bracket in our 1983.
We plan to use it for water and that means hot showers when camping.
The tank is actually about 1/4" wider than the wheel box.
Has 2 lids, not shown, that seal tight with a breather valve that shuts off on roll over.

Also good for those of us who are running alternate fuel.

Cool tank. if you use it inside the truck are you going to strap it in place or is there a way to directly bolt it in?
(I know you said you plan to use it in your Sankey - but if plans change . . .)

I was going to mount it in the Sanky, but am going with the interior mount based on metal straps on each side. The tank is molded for the straps and fits like it's made for a rear Land Rover wheel well box.

I have the same Front runner water tank as you... they are nice, but this interior tank is awesome.

Am getting another interior tank for water and one for extra fuel.
That will make: 18 stock + 18 (interior) + 10 (under seat) = 46 gallons of fuel.

With 18 gallons of water in the second interior tank plus the Front Runner tank on top = about 28 - 30 gallons of water.
With flat plate HE for hot showers.

Roof top tent, solar panels, Ironman Fridge...
Kitchen with sink, grill, two burners, and oven...
Kitted out like 10 mutha likkaas!!!
