for offroad use i'd put a tank in the bed. rocks, tree stumps and anything else will just be sitting there waiting to tear a hole in a saddle mounted tank

thats what I was thinking
but if you roll over something it could still puncture the tank
I've gone over sharp drops and ripped a bumper off

there is a brace about half way between the axle and the end of the frame. right where the tank would be. take the brace out, i lose strength, leave it in, no room for a tank. damned either way
