    If your JK has a roof rack, you may want to have a DIY shower--- http://www.instructables.com/Roof-Ra...or-Activities/

    Hey all,
    any idea what side the filler cap is? Is it din96 thread?

    Was thinking these options;

    Good to know there is no drain plug.

    cheers

    I use mine often when camping or going to the beach. It's convenient to have some quick water for washing off hands or rinsing off stuff without having to pack it inside the Jeep.

    And even less after you add the AEV tire carrier.

    Has anyone ever considered installing the pumps using copper tubing? I came across this thread after searching to see if anyone has posted about copper. After reading the comments about tanks not being emptied, valves being installed below...makes me feels that a proper copper tubing set-up with valves may be the way to go.

    3 gal in--3 gal out

    I have put in water many times with a gallon jug. Have only been able to get 3 gals to go in. I have tilted the car to get the water to go to the far side and checked the air vent. Never got more than 3 gals in.
    I have also put in a T drain, to drain it all, so as not to freeze.

    I have not plumbed the tanks yet because I really don't like the white tube running under the bumper. Probably won't hit it but I also don't like the look.
    After reading this I wonder if it would be better to try to put some type of filler on the right tank and have drains from the bottom of both?

    Well I know why I could only get about 3 gallons of water out of both tanks instead of closer to the 4.8 gallons as advertised. The left side tank only holds roughly 1-4/5ths and the right side holds less than 1.5 gallons. That is not even close to what they are supposed to be.

    Yes it does; guess I could be mistaken but pretty sure I read they were food grade plastic. I use mine for wash water; for my pots n pans

    Doesn't non potable mean non drinking?
