Baja 1.1 gallon tank added to XC with Hepco Becker Racks

Thanks to Butter and tbarstow posts of their Baja tank addition I have completed my tank set up. Purchased at http://justgastanks.com/product_info...roducts_id=572 This included brackets that mount to the top of tank and at the front tip. Included aluminum spacer not used. Replaced with rubber stopper drilled through the center.
With the physical help of grinding drilling and cutting 1/4 stock steel from Mouthfulloflake I present you picutres.



We did cut into the cross bar bracket to provide for addition 1/2 inch of room to play. Did not seem to compromise the stability of the bar at all.



Stock signals should mount just fine. Plenty of room.



Instead of using the supplied aluminum spacer we used a rubber stopper. This set up will allow for the tank to run with out the side racks installed.



About 1 inch clearance from the tank to the sidewall of tire.



Test run beginning of next week
Edit: The tank did great! No issues with clearance and it drained into the main tank just fine.
