    The local Baileys service centre fitted mine-I talked him into it and it was the first he had done. I think it cost around £600 and I ended up with a 40ltr tank after we found that the 100 ltr tank we wanted to fit would be about 2" below the lowest point on the chassis-so not a good idea.

    Don't worry about them being below the chassis - these things are tougher than you think!

    Mine was low on my old trooper, and proven tough enough on the most awful terrain off road being bumped and banged around, and scraped along the ruts. Never even dented it!

    One thing you have to remember - they are designed to withstand accident impacts. In truth, the straps would break before you pierced the tank - and it you did damage it, the gas cuts out!
