130 Sill Tanks

Does anyone have experience of fitting sill tanks to a 130?

Looking to find out how easy or difficult they were to fit and plumb in?

I'd like to have a couple of guages for fuel level etc. Keen to see what people are doing for checking level etc.

Thanks

I designed a rear fender tank that is inline with my fill spout.

I put it on pause, as i have a lot on my mind and the plumbing to external fuel pump needs me to be creative. Basically the pump will suck through a strainer filter that is inside the tank, then go to the top of the tank where i will have SS braided lines lead into the spout of the oem tank.

Front runner use to make the tanks for the 130 way back, but recently cancelled their production line.

They do have for the 110 but its not the same as the 130. Tried that...Now trying to sell it.

These guys in Aus make a really nice looking 86L RH side sill tank for the 130 and they will also have a LH side one available soon - http://www.shinglebackoffroad.com/fuel-tanks/

I'll be ordering a LH for water and RH for fuel as soon as the LH is ready - if there is some interest we could do a bulk order to save on shipping?

Thats pretty similar money if you compare them to Safari Equip I would guess. I have been having a few problems getting tanks to fit the 130 so might give Shingleback a try.

Potentially also keen for shipping collaboration.

I'm planning to fit a pair to my 110 as soon as they finish the design for the LH side 110 tank. i did some type and price comparisons and to me the Shingleback design is superior. Best clearance and access and should be very durable.

I will get in touch with them and see what sort of discount we can get on both purchase and delivery. Hopefully a few more will join us and get a decent sized order in. 80" 1948
