    Who's truck was that? The red Chevy truck with the flatbed and two kegs for gas tanks?
    I just watched a "Four Wheeler TV" I recorded on the DVR yesterday. I think it was the same truck, at Moab Jeep Safari. Rolled over on it's side, then winched back over.

    Yep that was me, The funny thing is that I have been through there plenty of times without spinning a tire.This time there happened to be a camera crew there and the first thing I do is run my left fender staight into the wall:doah:
    I missed it on tv but hopefully they showed the truck making it to the top.

    I just drilled and tapped the kegs and installed 3/8 nipples. It is injected and all I did was T the return line back into the inlet side of the pump.A lot of diesels are plumbed this way.
