I've considered having the brace reinforced but am thinking a better tank might be the way to go.

I remember seeing a thread where a guy made his own aluminum rear tank for either an ADV or an SE and I think he even painted it orange. I've searched thread after thread and can't seem to find it.

Anyone remember the thread? Anyone know of a rear tank that is made more like a cannister and mounted better than the current ADV tank?
I think that it would be cool to convert the CJ Designs aluminum tool box into an auxillary tank (or something similar to it, maybe larger?). I am having the same issues with my plastic 2.2 tank and would appreciate a cleaner, better fitting tank.
