Understood but some of us don't have this problem where we live. Why limit your clientele?

I agree and don't want to limit clientele but I think there is a different approach to the under vehicle storage.

It has been great to see everyones ideas.

Awesome, can't wait to see what you guys come up with. It's very cool to see another vendor catering to Land Rovers, even better to see one willing to work with the end user.

I might be wrong but I thought there was an issue with the extension tanks that are out there at the moment not working with NAS trucks due to the roll cage supports? I can see why they could be a liability headache though.

I think you are correct for the NAS and a pass through tank. Could always do a larger version to fit in the factory location and there is one available for under the passenger seat. I am sure DOT, EPA and a few others would jump in to help out. If there was ever one involved in an accident you could kiss everything good bye.

I have the ROW tank under the passenger's seat. Transfers to the main tank through tubing to the main tank's filler neck which is also how it is vented. Small pusher pumps drains the tank in about 20-25 minutes. Besides the rear braket is mounted to the frame and the front bracket is easy to get. The hardest part was figuring out where to put the filler.

Which brings up the idea of a nice filler holder, such as the ones Equipe makes only at an affordable price.

Problem with the under seat tanks for me is they hang down too low. Guarantee I will rip the arse out of it and a skid plate just makes it lower and easier to beat up/get hung up. Best option I have seen so far has been the larger tanks that fit in place of the stock one. Moot point anyway though if you're not going to make any.

Next time you visit sunny England you could pack one in a suitcase. Seriously maybe we should just buy a pallet of fuel tanks from the U.K. safari equip has them.

Here's a another cool item that I don't think is available in the US: Rear stowage cage with removable shelf. http://www.mantec.co.uk/productdetai...202EF90B419B55

I have seen them in the UK mags and on the website but didn't think they were availble thru any US dealers. Where did you get yours if you don't mind me asking?
