Custom C02 Air system. Need help and Ideas

I am in the process of making my own "Power tank". I found a free 20lbs C02 tank at a local recycler. Has anyone done this? Any thoughts or recommendations from your experiences? I am trying to decide what Regulator to go with and the best place to mount it on my LJ. I was thinking on the tire swing, I have a Hard Rock bumper and swing. Any thoughts, pics or even wild ideas would be appreciated. Thanks for the help.

Make sure that tank has a recent hydrostatic test stamp. That has to be done every five years.

It is out of date but most of the places where I live swap the tanks anyways. With an out of date tank they charge you $20 for testing and give you a tank that is good for 5 years.

^Yup....
I just had a tank swapped out myself.

But my CO2 (and nitrogen) tanks are for something else...





Good luck with your set up!
