I kept this one kind of short so it would fit in the Mole & Jersey “Rigs & Digs” segment. [MENTION=3418]michaelmole[/MENTION] & [MENTION=3]josh_cronin[/MENTION]

I can shoot a more detailed video later if anyone’s interested. And of course, questions, comments, and criticism are all welcome ;). Thanks for watching!

Nice Alex!


#3

Very nice!
I only caught a real quick view, but what would happen to your poles on those racks in a collision or heavy braking situation?


#4

They might dig into the headliner a little more than they already do. Wish I had the foresight to put some kind of padding up there by the rearview mirror before it got all gouged up. I’m a little concerned about the stuff on the back shelf, tbh.


#5

Good stuff! I’m amazed how much you fit into such a small area. I like that 25 gallon tank you somehow fit in back.


#6

Nice Rig Alex
Love the way you figured out the perfect placement of your tank
I like the clips for a pole on the tank too, sweet idea!

[MENTION=1313]Octopus[/MENTION], [MENTION=5058]mettlermaintenance[/MENTION], thanks guys. I would love to get a long, narrow tank to fit behind the seats across the footwells. That would free up some space, and lower the center of gravity (trust me, in a one-ton car, 250 lbs makes a noticeable difference). I just haven’t sourced one for a reasonable price. But things are working pretty well the way they are :).


#8

Have you looked at USplastics.com they literally hundreds of different tanks of varying dimensions.

Thanks for the tip. I believe I actually sourced the right size tank on TankDepot or one of the other sites, but they wanted ~$300 for a blank tank with no fittings or manway installed. The size I need is somewhere around 10"W x 14"H x 48-50"L. It’s somewhere in the 30 gallon range. I didn’t see anything quite like that on usplastics.

The car now has nearly 220,000 miles on the odometer, and is still going strong :smile:


What Size Hose Do You Used On WFPs?
#11

What psi is that tank? I’ve been wondering how much you need to work properly.


#12

Alex,
What is the biggest size ladder you can put on?
Have you had 24 feet ladder on top?
Thanks


#13

100psi, rated for 1.8gpm. Less should be ok. I would recommend a pump controller, though.


#14

I can carry a 28’er comfortably. 32’ would be alright as long as you put a flag on the back end. And a 40’ would be ok for short trips, not at freeway speeds, but definitely put a flag or blinking light on both ends.


#15

Great.
Can you tell me what ladder rack u using?
Thanks


#16

The Inno base rack:

You could add a third crossbar to really beef up the carrying capacity, as well as facilitate carrying shorter ladders.

But if I were to start fresh, I might look into getting an actual purpose built ladder rack, like they put on work vans:

Just stumbled on this…
miss my Xb now :frowning:

It had 210k, was running strong

Worst part about it…
The kid that bought it off me totaled it 2 days after…


#18

Alex, thats tight!

I test drove an XB yesterday, but it would have been too tight for us as sometimes we roll with 3 in a crew.

Any chance you can tell me what those rails are that you’re using for the poles in the headspace?


#19

But I’d love to fabricate something from wood, with notches cut for the poles. They just want to slide all around on the bars


#20

Just saw this old thread, do you still use the Scion? I’ve always loved those cars. I have a quick question about your small tank… At 25gal how much time could you use WFP before you had to fill? 1.8gpm… That’s not much time. I have wondered about getting a small tank, but your the first I’ve actually have seen to have one.
