Best truck water tank to buy

I'm looking into purchasing a water holding tank to put in my truck so I don't have to go back to the shop every time I need to fill up my spray tank. I want a low profile style and wondering if anyone out there has a good idea of gallons size and where to buy one online? My spray tank holds 8 gallons, does almost 1 acre.

I use a 50gal poly tank mounted in the bed for PG nurse tank. I have a 12v pump mounted next to it and a toggle switch mounted to the bed rail at the rear by the tailgate.

Gregson Clark. I think they have a link on this site. There have been a lot of threads on this subject if you do a search.

A Plastic or steel 55 gallon drum works Ok. Naturally you have to chain it down. You may have to lay it on its side and use gravity flow.

Tractor supply has a tank for $100. http://www.tractorsupply.com/en/stor...l?cm_vc=-10005. You could put a 12 v pump on it or use gravity to feed it.
