    Default water carrying capacity

    Hi there

    under the disco and defenders there is approximate space of 600mm x 150mm x 400 mm, have anyone done water tank in SS for the vehicle it looks like a perfect spot for carrying extra water....the rock-slider will be next to the tank.

    ___this space___

    ladder chassis
    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    ----this space----
    ====rockslider===

    sorry for the picture (i thought the idea is cool having the water tanks there lower center of gravity?)
    volume looks like 600 x 150 x 400 = 36liters x 2 tanks = 72 liters underneath the vehicle

    Think in Aus they make tanks for those sides you mentioned, also front runner made a tank for the 110 there but donít think they make it any more
