I know here it's a necessity, if you go muddin or driving in the winter with all the salt and crap on the roads or after it starts raining and the semi in front of you kicks up all that oilly grime on your windshield...pretty much need to have it.
What is this rain you speak of?

I have driven all over the country and have never absolutely needed washer fluid. But I cannot speak for driving in snow with salt on the road as that is an experience that I have not enjoyed.
If it were my trail rig I wouldn't hesitate in removing the reservoir entirely. Even in my case of it being a DD, I wouldnt hesitate in its removal.

My vote for welder; Lincoln.
Because I NEED to go skiing in the winter and the stupid state lets others drive on the highway and throw slop in my face

With rain it isn't an issue. In Colorado we don't use salt, we use Magnesium Chloride (Mag Chloride) which when it dries is a pasty white substance which is impossible to see through. I'll go through nearly an entire gallon on some really bad weather ski trips...

I came down from near Tahoe when the road was covered in mag chloride with no washer fluid. Let me tell you how scary that is. OMGITSSCARY! Basically, imagine having like 5/20 vision all the time. Windshield wipers dont get mag chloride well, they like to smear it.

What about using a Bag style res from like a classic car? Then you could pretty much relocate it wherever you wanted. Granted it would be a little smaller and the pumps and all that would be different.

You would lose the low washer fluid sensor (could just hardware it closed so it didn't constantly annoy you) and you need need to control how the bag deflates so as it gets low, the pumps still worked.
