    So a little over a month ago i added a toolbox to the bed of my truck. If you didn't see that its here-
    https://www.tundras.com/threads/no-drill-tool-chest-in-bed.47436/

    Since i put that in I've been looking for a way to mount my CO2 tank and i finally came up with a solution-

    Used a security camera mount (lol) ($20 on Amazon) and painted it with truck bed liner. Holes on the back are threaded and i used the bolts that came with it.

    only have one strap on right now for test fitting (plan on adding more before hitting the dirt) but the thing is SOLID already. Works for now.

    Very clever! Thinking outside the box. Looks really good too!

    Just thinking. Have you looked into using a fire extinguisher mount?
    This one is a little more but it has a nice quick release feature.

    How many times would you be able to air up all fours tires with that tank?

    I remember @Porschetech29 had a tank and that thing filled up the tires quick!

    i have looked at the extinguisher mounts but was kinda thinking they were too small- maybe i'm wrong. i dont typically need to move my tank while on the trail so it wasn't a big concern.


    i can air up quite a bit with this tank... i'm only going down and back up maybe 10-12 PSI so i can fill about 20 tires before exchange is needed.

    On the exchanges, be aware of the cylinder dates. (Probably those yellow crayon marks.) At the rate you turn them over, it probably won't be an issue. If you let one set around too long, you might have buy a cylinder. Experienced that with MIG gas...and propane bottles.

    If the tank is expired, all you have to do is get it hydro’d, and your good for another 5 years.

    :cool: Good info. I didn't know that, and it makes sense. Apparently I've never had a hydrotest offered in lieu of selling me a new tank. Can you typically just pay the hydro fee to the gas supplier, or do you have to find a hydro source yourself?

    The people doing the fills can hydro it for you. Then again, after hearing this, can’t say I would do business with them.
