Well I got the new tank I have had it 3 days and have been back to the shop 3 times to fill it!! I am playing with the bags every sec I get :) I love it. Any way I wanted to put the tank in my bed and I did not want anyone to yank it so I made up this bracket from some flat 3/8 aluminum That will have 2 locks on it so it is safe but still I am able to take the tank out to refill it with out any tools. just wanted to get input form you guys what do you think? I will post pics of it in my bed soon.





It kinda looks like a BIG NOS tank :D

It is a 3,000 PSI 80 cu. ft. tank that runs at 145 PSI
I know this has been asked before but how much pressure can I push MAx for show? 150-170? my tank is max 150. and I have ride pro valves.

Id run it up to 200 if you can. Also, what are those straps lined with? Got a pic of them without the bottle? They look cool..

I got all the metal from home depot and the straps have this 1/2" thick foam that is made to go between the top rail of your truck and a camper shell so it is grippy stuff!! I will post some pics with out the tank. '

Also I was thinking of running it to 200 PSI then putting on a small adjustable reg after the main one that will go from 0-300 PSI so I can crank it up to show off! and back down for normal driving.

Man any of those scuba tanks for sale???

anyway my reg used was about $100
A fixed reg is about $150-$200 NEW
A adjustable reg 0-3,000 PSI is about $500-900 I think new

It is a good idia to buy a fixed one adjust it with washers up to 200 PSI then buy a small home depot reg for $30 and use that to go from 0-200 PSI because you will never use anything over 500 PSI !
