Question about AEV Water tanks

For those that have the AEV rear bumper with water tanks, did anyone use something other than the AEV kit to plumb it? Any modifications that you added to make it better? Any one add a filter to the setup? Thanks.

I'm interested in this too. I'm considering putting in an RV-style demand pump and hiding a spigot somewhere.

Now back to a 2013 JKU Rubicon with "stuff", planning 37's with minimal lift.

I've tried them all... Jeeps are still the best. (0||||0)

I have installed a ton of them. I haven't had the need to improve a already great design. They are made out of food grade plastic although I don't think the end user would drink out of them.

I went on an overlanding trip in Vermont this summer with 2 AEV built JK's. Once we made it into Vt we stopped to stock up on food an water for the trip and filled both of the bumpers as full as we could. By the time we made it to the campsite 30 minutes later one of the bumpers had leaked all but about a gallon out of it. Two days later while heading through some nasty mud the hose that connects the two tanks ripped out on the other bumper and we lost all of the water out of that one.

These seem like a great idea but could use more refinement and protection. If you take the time to reinforce the hose between the tanks you would probably be in good shape but I would never solely rely on the water in those tanks.

I seal the fittings with Teflon no issues at all
