Thats a nice tank. Just depends on what size you want. I think Gauge has that tank cheaper though if you want to check with them.

oh, ok maybe ill do that. i noticed it says the tank will go up to 150 psi, so when people have trucks that hop, how do they do that? isnt 150 psi too low for hopping? i dont need to hop im just curious

Most DOT rated items are rated at 1/3 their burst pressure. You an easily run 300 PSI in a tank and not have to worry about it poppin on ya. 300 Is the max i would ever put into a tank tho.

With your forum discount from gauge magazine, i think the price comes out to be the same. You can get whatever tank you want, as long as it fits your needs, whether it have 2, 6 or 8 ports. Figure out what you need and want, then find something that will be comparable.

well now that i see you want it mounted under the bed i wouldn't go with a tank like that. have heard it said that the petcock you put on it will scrape the ground. search zygote's gallery. he has some great pics of the tanks you should be using. i believe his are airlift's tank having the bigger 1/2 inch ports or you could use the air ride tech tank with the 3/8 ports.

i'm i'm not certain on this one yet, but i do believe art now makes a tank with 1/2 inch ports
