    guys with trucks, where'd you mount them, where'd you get them, how big, and what kind of fuel delivery do you use?

    I mounted 2, in the bed. I used an electric pump and used rubber fuel injection hose. They were 2 16 gallon tanks with ball vales mounted between them, also i used the feed and return lines on both

    I have run two setups. One was a custom fuel cell I had built, low profile under the toolbox. It worked great in the sand but the pickup placement didn't like off camber. I added a sump tank inline before the pump and the filter, but it would still starve after 5 min or so. Next is a 32 gal jaz cell that fits in the tool box. It is foam filled and has a sending unit to work with my guage. It has a smaller footprint so pickup placement is more effective. I will keep the sump tank for insurance though.
