    What are those of you with them using for mounts. I am looking for some kind of release mount like an extinguisher type but can't find any that aren't sold by offroad tank vendors (I don't like to pay convinience fees). Any input would be helpful.


    Also, is it safe to have the tank in the sun all day (mind you AZ wheeling is often +100°)? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    Go to a welding suppy store. They offer several types of tank straps. That is what we use in the race trucks. Storrage and heat are not an issue.

    The tank needs to be upright or you will get liquid CO2 coming out (bad thing)

    Thanx

    I made my own, I used 3" angle then used 1" steel strap then I welded one piece to one side of the angle then wrapped it around the tank and made a little lip then I did the same to the other side and then to the bottom, I use 2 bolts with wing nuts to attach it around the tank. I will try to get some pics.
