We even remove the spare tire underneath to lessen the weight & wear & tear on our trucks.

Nuther difference is our tanks are fiberglass Tuflex tanks instead of plastic. Plastic tanks are fine, but they do not last as long. They also tend to fade/discolor. So sometime down the road, you may choose to switch to fiberglass?? Anyways....nice unit!

Oh yeh -- we also installed quick disconnect fittings on our tanks so we can fill them about 75 gallons per minute. Just a thought.
Do you have any pictures of how you did the quick disconnect on the tank? I mentioned doing this, but am not exactly sure how to set it up.
Too much to list here...
