I've just been carrying powered water, but I lost the instructions and I don't know what to add to it.

The long ranger tanks are really nice units - good quality products.

For water storage I put a flexible 70 liter water bladder in the rear under floor storage area, or in the rear seat foot well - depends how long we are going to be away from civilisation for.

I'm a big fan of keeping liquid weight as low as possible in the vehicle...

Be careful when you open the container in the wind. The last time I did it , the stuff blew away before I could mix it.

They need to make a Long Ranger for the 2 door JK's...ive also been working on my own water system...first it was going to replace the soundbar up top but that would have been too top heavy. Now I am looking at redirecting my exhaust to make room for a water tank in the rear right behind the bumper. Was thinking access would be made to it by cutting out the storage "pit" in the back.

There are apparently a few development versions of the 2-dr tank installed - should be mainstream release sometime soon.

Why not just use the storage pit in the back?
- the soft water bladders fit into the space pretty well, and mean that you don't need to cut anything out.

Because the pit itself will only fit maybe...2 gallons? Just an estimate off the top of my head. I want bit more than that. I want to be able to have at least 10 gallons available for camping trips and long rides at all times. The only problem with that is 10 gallons = 80 lbs and whether or not that much weight in the back will be an issue. Also gotta worry about the weight of the container. Im thinking stainless steel. Plastic would break too easy and become even more fragile over time. Stainless lasts a lifetime. Even if I got about 6 gallons I would be happy. Basically I want the equivalent of 1-2 Gerry cans of water.

We have one bladder that normally lives in the hole in the back, for longer camping trips we lay it across the whole width of the vehicle behind the front seats - it's tough enough to stand on and holds 90 liters of water if it is completely full and folds up into a small package when empty.

5 gallon gas cans on a Shrockworks rack, I could get a 5gal water can but usually bring bottled water to drink and shower at campgrounds etc... I also have several of these style water carriers they fold up for easy storage, you can set one out in the sun for a hasty shower etc...

check out Woods, a JKO vendor. He has a tub enlargement kit and a muffler relocation kit. don't know what the capacity for H2O is but he claims it doubles the space of the OEM Pit. http://www.jeepswag.com/
