I've been looking at NWMP and Downey for an aux tank for the mini truck. Anyone btdt and have advice for me? Any other vendors I should look at before pulling the trigger?

I have looked at the NW ones but I can't see spending that kind of cash for a tank. I would look for a boat tank or something like that since it is a gravity fed design anyway.

Yes, the NWMP tank is spendy for only 13 more gallons. And the spare goes back under the new tank so that adds a wrinkle to my already long rear overhang. I can't put the storage solution in my bed tho, because I sleep back there.

There's no good way to link to the NWMP tank, but here's the Downey tank page (http://www.downeyoff-road.com/BodyComponents/AuxiliaryTanks.html). It's cheaper and holds a gallon more, still gravity feed design. I could go all expo/safari and put my spare on the hood to preserve clearance in the rear. Still don't know what to do with my NATO cans tho.
