Propane tank in a CJ7

where did you guys mount your tank. i dont like the idea of only a 10 gal. forklift tank. anyone running duals? if you have something other than a forklift tank, where did you buy it and was it big bucks? PICTURES IF YOU HAVE THEM

Had a 35 gallon tank for my project before I sold everything. It woulda just needed the wheel tubs notched for the end fittings

I have a 2.5 gal tank that I plan on mounting under the battery tray. For the 35 gal tank, you just that mount on your Bantam trailer. lol

A 35 gallon tank really isn't that large, and a 10-15 isn't going to last you long at all. Do you still have a back seat?

i have 2 forklift bottles that i will be using. i figured i could use one, then throw the other one in if i need it. i figured my jeep doesnt use a whole lot of fuel so that should last me for a few hours without having to have a massive tank in the back. i might just rig them up side by side so i can just switch the hoses when needed, but im not running a back seat.
