Drag up tank? (pics welcome)

I'm thinking of building my own drag up tank but I'm looking for something different. Anyone have any ideas? Even if you have pics of your own tank post em. And finally what are you thoughts of a drag up tank, messy, extra weight, problems with dot. Is it worth it? I always wanted one for filling my tractor or for road trips. Let me know what you think.

I have a RDS aux. tank/toolbox combo in my truck. Works great. Gravity fed to my factory fill line. If you build one be sure you baffle it or it will slosh like crazy.

X2 on the baffles. My VO tank is 200 gals and only baffled side-to-side. At 1/2 tank, it rocks pretty good if i stop fast.

I think a tank/toolbox combo is great. Incorporate the pump/filter/hose into the toolbox for a cleeeean look. Gravity feed to stock tank would be nice, but pump ain't so bad.

Make sure tank stays in bed in the event you have to drive over a Kia. Strong tabs/brackets are a good idea. Also recommend a coating for steel tank interior - Red Kote is good stuff...

I think 'legal' max is 110gals for DOT...

I have a 44gal tank out of an excursion mounted where my spare tire use to be. Gives me a total of 73 gal and a practical range of about 1000-1200 mi running empty down the highway and back and forth to work.

Lol you'll get around to it pop. I like the capacity of the ex tank, its as big as you can possibly go in that location, and the ex tank has the 1/4'' thick gaurd around bottom and sides, which I have used quite a bit lol.


Bulla you can also use some of the tanks like out of some broncos and other vehicles as well, I've heard of some going that route.

Rick did you go take that pic this morning just for me? I'm big sure why they call it that or at least that's what I've heard it called. Aux. Tank would be acceptable I guess.
