Question about installing my tank on my truck - PLEASE HELP

Hi guys

Not sure if anyone here works out of a pickup truck but thats how im doing it.

I have a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 (6'3 bed), Im building my own rig and my welder is hooking me up with a tank about 48x24x30 (rectangle steel tank)

my question is how do you guys bolt down the tank to the pickup truck? just use bolts and drill them to the floor of the bed?

any other recommendations?

thanks!

Depends if you want to take it off in the winter! Id make a platform so a hilo can take it off and on! But yes bolt through the frame. How come your going with a rect. tank? Trash pump circulation then......

nope, it will stay there for the winter lol

around here alot of sealers go with the rectangle tank (i believe Protech sells it in their systems)

It wont be oil based sealer such as BlackMac, I'll be using a Gem Seal product which uses this pump http://www.actionseal.com/ryno-prose...ting-pump.html which is a Centrifugal Pump.
this sealer will not work with the gear pump (albany pump)

bolting down to the frame it is!
