Steve,

School me on these Power Tank packages.

I know we talked a little in your shop a couple of weeks ago and you had one we looked at. It looked like a complete system, was that the "Package B"?



The 10lb tank will mount on a side rack (rated @ 20lbs) with large Quickfists without any issues, correct?

Thanks man,
Nick

Nick - yes, I have one B system in stock with the XFlo coupler. The package is a complete system and what I run in my FJ. You can mount with the nice metal mount that comes with the system, or 2 Super QuickFists. One Super QuickFist can hold the weight but I use two (one high and one low) to keep the tank from shaking. I've never had any issues with the mounting. My tank is mounted to the stock plastic inner panel with a fender washer on the backside. Safe mounting to a side rack would depend on the capacity of the side rack.

I love cranking my PowerTank up to 250 PSI and air up my tires in a snap. I've seated beads too by running 250 psi, remove the valve stem innards (yes, that is a technical term) and give the tire a quick shot of CO2. Works like a charm.

I'm trying to decide how to mount a tank. Why are you using the Quickfists vs. the factory mount?

The metal mount that comes with the Power Tank is V-E-R-Y nice. It has a flat back so it needs to be mounted against a flat surface for best results. I have my Power Tank mounted as far up as possible on the driver's side in the rear. There is a slight bend in the factory plastic inside panel so I needed the mount to be able to bend a bit. The QuickFists worked perfect. Either will work just fine - the best option depends on exactly where you want to mount your tank.

BTW - I have a spare factory Power Tank mount (cheap) if anyone wants one.

I don't mind a bit!

Male or female, 1/4" threads.

There are some pics and info http://powertank.com/products/sfID1/16/listPage/2 and from the pic http://powertank.com/products/sfID1/16/productID/435 the threads look to be normal (not reversed). The package I have has the X-Flo installed.

When I get ready to pull the trigger, do I need to just contact you or order through your site? I like the one you have in the store, but I want a blue one Very Happy

You can do either. If you purchase through the Southeast Overland WEB STORE just make sure to spec the tank as blue. If you call me I'll take care of you over the phone. Or - you can swing by the shop. Thanks!

Where would you fill one of these up? And how many tires can a 5 or 10lb tank fill?

Many welding shops, paintball shops, and some other places can fill them up for you. I get charged $12 for a 10 lb tank at the local welding shop in Seneca. The 10lb tank fits the best (I think) in a FJC.

On my 10lb tank I get about 4 complete tire air ups, or 16 tires going from about 16 psi to 40 psi. Power Tank specs you can fill 20 33x12.5x15 tires an increase of 20 psi, or 13 tires 30 psi. The 20 psi increase takes about 30 seconds and the 30 psi increase takes about 45 seconds.

Steve, can you post a pic of how you have your tank mounted and a pic of the factory mount you have for sale?

Argh - I'm at the shop but I didn't drive my FJ today! Mad I won't be seeing her until late Sunday. I'll get pics up Sunday or Monday. Sorry for the delay.

Oh, and each Super Quick Fist has a WLL of 50 lbs so two @ 50 lbs each (100 lbs total) will easily hold a <30lb 10 lb CO2 tank.

Very Happy
