And I'm still not convinced I need more range. I guess for some long distance in out of the way places there's the potential for need. A water jug might be useful as well.
Oh, and that weight on those racks is no big deal.
Anyway, great work and thanks for posting it.
I most likely will only fill it when needed reducing the wear and tear. If I had a welder I would have loved to permanently adhere it but alas I'm a budget shade-tree mechanic. I'll update as I get to use it.
