    I have these tanks that i acquired not too long ago and have had to reinforce the tank mount as it was cracked with some angle iron welded to the tank and tank bracket.
    Im guessing you are referring to welding their bracket they supply to the out rigger as well bolting?

    I think that part is ok just bolted, I've never touched that part. More so the outrigger that is a part of the chassis, where it is welded to the chassis. When the factory welded it on, it is in the wrong spot by a few millimeters, and thats enough to allow the chassis sidewall to flex and crack. Its right on the very end of the chassis, so a MIG torch will fit in and weld it up.

    The picture below shows the inside of the main chassis rail cracked on the very end where the chassis outrigger is welded to it. The piece supplied by LRA is bolted to that outrigger.

    Cheaper

    4 or 5 gerry's is a much cheaper option.

    You can now pick up 12 volt fuel pumps specifically for gerry cans on Ebay that have a very good flow rate that won't leave you waiting excessive amounts of time to transfer fuel and save the work of having to manhandle the gerry's to get the fuel in the tank.

    Cheers,

    Jason

    Might be cheaper......but dealing with 4-5 jerries on the roof would be a pain.

    I had two on the roof for my Simpson.....only filled them at Birdsville and emptied during the crossing.

    Plus travelling with the 4 of us in the car, food, water, clothes, bedding, for our 3 week trip across Madigans Line in July wonít leave us with any room for 3 Jerry cans.
