Drop tanks

Does anybody know how they work/hook up. (other than the obvious) ive got an XY ute, and the spare wheel well has been cut out, so its just the 9" in the back, and the tray, so i want to add a drop tank to add a bit more weight, but ive heard the sedan one wont fit, being that the utes are based on a stationwagon floor pan...any ideas?, know of any South East QLD places that make them, and install them? thanks heaps for your help guys.

Re: Drop tanks

mmm drop tank. Ive been thinking about one of those for my XD for the look and to also allow duel dumps as impossible with plastic tank on LHS unless you dump it to the far left which I don't want to do.

Next I'll be wanting a roll cage

Scope out my '80 XD Fairmont Ghia 351 V8 in the gallery!
