    Recieved the following from Radd Cruisers...

    "If I could get a groupe order I would build 5 to 10 tanks, then maybe I could sell them for around 650.00."

    Anybody interested in taking the lead on this? A 40 gallon tank for FJ60's. This is a lot less than the cost from Opposite Lock.

    That IS the cost of a 50 gallon Opposite Lock tank. Minus shipping!!!

    And the OL tank is 50 gallons. Dont get me wrong, we need more big tank venders. Build it.

    Cool! At 50 gallons it would only cost me $119.50 to fill it up.

    When I talked OL in OZ, they told me $950. Maybe they meant Aussie dollars?

    Yes that IS Oz dollars. The tank is around 600.00 US. The shipping is around 300.00 US. AND it takes MONTHS to get it.

    Ya know, the only time you have to much fuel on board is when you're on FIRE!
