Used a stock racing fuel cell for an auxiliary tank. Fabricated a skid with 1/4" scrap aluminum. Much easier than I thought before I started the project.
I absolutely love that you drilled your hood scoop area to gain more air flow! BADASS!:rocker:I will be posting a few mods in this thread.
Here is the first one I did when I first got my truck
Color matched door handles and mirror bases. Mirrors and bumpers black, bezel color matched white with yellow letters
Hood scoop Mod. Expanded metal, drilled opening for air flow
I decided to remove the control box on WIKID'S bumper and send it to the engine compartment. Longer cables made it possible to mount in under the XD-I intake with easy access to the plug in for the wired remote. Hopefully I won't need that since I installed the wireless controller inside the control box. Everything should stay more dry now.
I like the cleaner look under the bull bar now. I didn't like the large gap inside the bumper. It looked unfinished
I decided to go get some steel and fab something up to fill the hole. I went to the steel place and looks through the scraps. I found some 3/4" angle and some plate steel with holes in it, brought it home. 9 bucks is what it cost. I used the dimensions from the cut out and started fabbing,
This is what I ended up with
Here it is fit in place . I used Magnetic strips along the front to keep it in place so I still have access to the winch control bar. I almost didnt need anything since the angle fit it nicely, but I decided to use the magnets for a clean appearance
What's the benefit from more airflow through there (apart from decreasing airflow through the radiators & increasing lift on the hood at highway speeds)?I absolutely love that you drilled your hood scoop area to gain more air flow! BADASS!:rocker:
Hi so did you try this one ?looks good i am trying to get them on the phone but no luck yet !!G'day Mate,
Thanks for the reply.
cool, sounds like a simple and easy way to go.... so the tank sit up under the canister, sort of spaced to sit under it. Interesting!!
Good capacity too.... 17 gals, is cool.
If you can get more photo's that would be great, and if you need help getting a thread going to show how n what you did. Just let me know...
There are many who will appreciate it, I'm sure.
No DIY photos?I installed the Ipad mini into dash this weekend, I think it looks clean. Awesome tool to have nowadays. The bluetooth connection sounds amazing, much better then stock. It is also easily removable if need too.
