Hello Ian when i spoke to Steve Smith last he did say he has cut the front on the tank off the comes into the crew cab .This has a tank which holds 750 gallons where a Fire engine holds 450 gallons the inside of the tank was very rusty Steve put 110 volt electric hook up on it and made the inside of the tank into living accommodation.A friends girlfriend nick named it the Foam Camper.
