I don't have exact measurements, I tried but the shop wasn't really interested in doing more so they didn't bother taking them down. I can probably crawl under and get approximate numbers, but it is easier to get the tank and just go from there. There is lots of play to orient things the way you want with the tank I listed.

No luck with an ABS tank on my end which is why I went this route. I'll be driving through Montana most likely in September if you are interested in seeing it in person. I haven't planned it all out yet, but I'm pretty sure we are going through Bozeman.

Definitely... if you wouldn't mind taking some rough measurements i'd appreciate it! Would love to see it if i am around and would like to have my buddy look at it as he will be helping me on this project. Is the y-pipe splitter custom ( i can't recall) Thanks!

would also like to see some more pics of how the cage is tied in to the frame and crass support. Thanks so much!

really is a shame they didn't want to fab-up a kit. I guess that could be done by someone else. As for liability is concerned, it would have to be officially sold **FOR OFFROAD USE ONLY** :P

The hell I don't! LISTEN, KID! I've been hearing that crap ever since I was at UCLA. I'm out there busting my buns every night. Tell your old man to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court for 48 minutes.

Probably, the mounting might be slightly different. Best thing is to order the gas tank and test fit it yourself. It's only like $200.

@sheller73 I totally forgot about getting the measurements. I'll try this weekend.

Appreciate any measurements on the cage and skid. Was that splitter custom fabricated or was that an off-the-shelf item?

Thanks again!

Damn I forgot to post these. I took the measurements but left them in the truck. It's with Nissan for a rust warranty on the doors (dropped it off Monday). I'm hoping to get it back sometime next week.

Splitter was custom but I'm sure you could probably find one.

Hey man, that's alright. I got a few projects left before I tackle the tank. If you have any more pics of that splitter, I'd love to see them. Really appreciate your help!

How did I miss that you finished this! That is awesome! I'll have to go back and read all the details later.

I hate having such a small tank.

Everything happens for a reason .... Sometimes the reason is that you're stupid and make bad decisions.
