    from Molalla OR

    go with a bladder tank or a alum tank you will be much happier...If you are putting it under the bed I have used blazer tanks- woirk well with slight modification- suburban will get you up to 40 gal. I have a poly tank in one truck and will be swapping it out as the top sags and the fittings are a pain to deal with- leaks.

    I used a summit sum-293220-s In my '57 truck it is only 20 gallons so it is only good for about 180-200 miles at a time- but worked way better than the poly tank..

    ya the plastic ones look cheap and deform. I have an aluminum 10 gall in my drag car and it still looks good after seven or eight years. If you dont want to spend the money and have some scrap steel or aluminum around build a cover for it.
