Question Front Runner water tank fitting

I have been wanting one of these water tanks that are made for 110 left rear quarter panels, but does anyone know if these would fit an NAS 110? I'm concerned that the they might be obstructed by the cage tubing in the extreme rear of the space.

Why don't you get a stainless fabricator to build you one that would fit under the second row seats? You could then run a line to the rear cross member to dispense.
I would personally rather have stainless than plastic any way.

Just a thought.

oh, crap ... I owe you some pictures!

I'll add: It might be a cool thing to come up with a black plastic one to cradle in the roof rack to to solar heat water for showers.

Just sayin.

ps: Now where is that camera.

I have heard that metal fabrication is really expensive, and I would rather spend my money elsewhere, but may be something I check out when I'm ready.

I am also interested in using low center of gravity unused space first, before going for cabin based solutions. this is a competing concept to removable inner water tank and bladder options.

As for hot water, I'm definitely going with a Graham Jackson style heat exchanger based filtered water system for all weather expo style water use.

I have one on my NAS 110 and it fits fine. Bought from Front Runner in SA and had it shipped to the US. It took a while but it got here.

Also want to find out more about the Graham Jackson style heat exchanger.

Winter 2008 issue of Overland Journal. Graham Jackson does a few article on designing and overland vehicle water supply system, which I had been thinking through myself. hot and cold running water, filtered and unfiltered taps, and on-board versus external supplies.

Safari Equip also does a tank in stainless that fits in that location. I will be putting one on once I get some available cash after bankrupting myself with my current UK order of parts.

The Scorpion Racing tank in the pic is a Safari Equip item. Safari Equip did most of the fab work for Scorpion branded stuff before Scorpion went belly up. http://www.safari-equip.co.uk/index.php?page=11

How about some pics from the inside and out? love to see it, and can't find any pics installed on the net.

Also, perhaps you might share what it cost you with shipping?

I also noticed that Safari Equip has a water tank that is even bigger (56ltr) that goes under the left side sill. I'm going to inquire on that.

Here you go. Can't find my receipt but I remember that shipping wasn't bad. Equipt sells their products. You might want to try them.
