    Once I get the EFI tuned I'll post a video. Here are more pics. The Jerry cans are permanent. Open the valve and they drain to the main tank. The steps slide vertically and can be quick pinned up for offroading. The red tank in the tool box is for hydraulic fluid for front and rear hydraulic drive winches. Also an Engine oil cooler in the box with thermostat conrtolled fan.

    One of the most creative uses of the cans and box I have ever seen. Definitely looking forward to the vid.

    That's an awesome project. That's probably one of the more unique projects I've seen on here and it's done really well. Great job, and I'm looking forward to a lot more pics.
