Propane Installed

March 6th, 2009

The hot-dog propane tank finally mounted:


Feeds go to the heater, stove and a rear bumper mounted quick release fitting for an external BBQ that’ll mount on the rear bumper.   The tank is 10″ in diameter — it ends up reducing ground clearance a bit…not much more than the existing drivetrain.

The Precision Temp Junior heater installed.   I still have to plumb and hook up the electrical.


It sure would have been good to use that volume for a tank or something.

    It looks like you installed a bomb under your vehicle. Is there any chance of it hitting something when you are out 4 wheeling or is that now strictly off limits?

    Heh. Boom is right. I’m going to install a skid plate around it.

    It extends down about the same as the parking brake so clearance is approx the same, though mid-vehicle clearance isn’t as important as on the sides.

    fwiw, I severely beat up the propane tank on my Eurovan when in baja. Eurovans have something like 5″ of clearance below the propane tank…
