I put mine in so the raised side was to the passenger side. So, on the driver side, with my plywood deck, I have enough room for the spare. Might be enough for your fridge. You are welcome to check it out.

The snow mobile pickups are these

26 each. I'd probably run two, one at each end of the tank.

The SS lines are up to you. You can also just run normal metal lines. I'm running soft lines right now, and, while it works fine, its too hokey for me. I prefer to have stuff as bombproof as possible. I'm only going SS because I got some for free from a friend. they came with -3AN fittings on em, and are pretty trick.

SS lines are going to run some more coin. I'd bet you could do metal lines for 20-30 bucks.

Other than that, It cost me maybe 20 bucks in sheet metal and .5" square tube to build the tank cover in the back, a few bucks for a couple of bolts to hold the tank up (drilled/made brackets for the tank to mount to some brackets I welded onto the frame rail).

I'm not recalling off the top of my head, but I spent maybe 20 bucks for a 1 foot section of 2" fuel line for the filler neck, and used exhuast tubing welded up for the main parts of the fill tube. The soft 2" tube was for connecting to the tank, and for connecting several of the pieces of exhuast tubing together. I welded up most of the filler tube, and then filled it with water and let it sit suspended over some newspaper overnight to see if it leaked. It didn't.

Few dollars for the associated hose clamps.

All in all, I'd think you could do this whole project for under 200 bucks (not including a new tank, not sure what that will run you).

Not to bad of a deal. I have a second tank already so it should be pretty easy to do. The other tank I got was perfect with all the stuff for $30 can't beat that.

I need to check your rig out one of these days, not when it is -10* out. I like what you did with your tranny and tcase, you did not lift the engine did you? I could use a flat belly myself that way I don't have to go bigger right away.

Are you ever on the south side? If so give me a ring and we can hook up for a beer or ........

I am sure I have more questions but that is it for now.

LOL! Thanks Tim! I like them a lot. I'm hoping that with some mods to the steering, (FJ-80 rod ends and a few others) I won't break things on the trail.

Looking good, plenty of clearance for some good crawling. You going on the snow run?

It looks great with the new tires! Any rubbing in the rear?

Not that I've been able to produce. Wheeling with be the ultimate test. I haven't been able to find anything to flex it on good enough to fully flex the suspension. I've jacked up the truck on the rear until the other tire comes off the ground, but that doesn't accout for leveraging offroad. I'm thinking it might rub just a hair in a few situations.

Dunno. Might ride a long with someone. Rear axle needs work before too much offroading is going to get done: ie new wheel bearings, and some more welding.
