It is about time. :flipoff2: Let me know if you need a hand.
Make sure to either have the AN fittings or to leave room for them when looking at the cooler lid height. I was surprised at how much room I needed over the tank just to clear a 90 deg fitting.Test fit the cooler and gas tank this weekend and it fits perfect. I will probably build a small shelf for the cooler to sit on above the ammo cans as it needs to be a little higher than the gas tank for the top to open.
RCI 2171a gas tank holds 17 gallons and is 30 wide x 17 tall x 7 deep
What? No beer in this shot. :flipoff2:Keeping the build moving this weekend. Got the front tires mounted on rims. The front lower links on and the uppers mocked in place. Used the Artec mounts and I guess my measurements were off as I thought the driver side would land on the top of the pumpkin better. Going to have to rethink that one this week. Wheel base is sitting at 111 right now. After moving the chassis over to get the driver tire on it still fit in the garage by inches too.
Yes, the tires are past the front of the chassis.
The Richards Tavern beer was brewed by me.
Got the gas tank mount from Dan at Motobuilt. I drew up my gas tank in solidworks and sent it over to him and he made me a sweet tank mount since I couldn't find one that anyone was making for the RCI 2171 tank. Came out great! I love finding a shop that will work with you.
I know it is tough making only 1 but hopefully since no one else is making mounts for this tank he will make some money off the new design. Came with nice grade 8 hardware and stover style lock nuts too.
There are 6 pieces incase you are wondering. This was done to keep costs down.
Also got the cigarette lighter powered up this weekend in my 4runner as I lost power to it when I removed the wiring harness and switched to propane. Now I can charge my ipod to keep the tunes playing.
