redneck power tank...i was told if i get a nitrogen gauge it will fill a 35 inch tire in a few seconds imedeitly..im wondering now..sounds good..
Don't paint the tank. A shop may not fill a tank they can't inspect the surface of.

i swaped out a 20 yr old tank for this one..ive been doing buisness there for 20 yrs and there good to me..i asked them about painting it and they said as long as i could take the sticker off and put it back on it was ok..sounds good to me as there tanks are turqoise s@#t green lol..it should last me a long time and its not that heavy either..i wish i could get a small gauge for it that would work as im useing a aceytelene gauge with diffrent parts to make it work..the power tank gauges are high dollar s i dont want to ruin my budget lol..
if i wanted i could keep the tank and let the scuba shop fill it with air for 8 bucks in town..id rather have air than nitrogen in my opinion..

I drove 4 hours from South Carolina in my work van so I could pick up my 35x12.50r15 BFG KM2's on 15x8 soft 8's from 4 wheel parts and then went home(only 5 minutes away) and proceeded to remove my old bald toyos(35's measuring out as 33's) on rusty wheels and install the new stuff.

The Jeep looks so much happier now that it got it's dignity back...

I fixed my DW problem by swapping a tire on the front that maybe has 1000 miles left on it if im lucky for the spare which has about 50% tread left. now to just find one new(or slightly used) MT/R to make them all about the same.

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.

I got my sticker today!




I also recently painted my steering and took off my front bumper because I was in the middle of cutting it into a stubby and my sawzall battery died.




and a few pics of my hi-lift mount (borrowed the design from tedder on the forum and it works great)
