You really ARE a huge noob aren't you? lol. That's a CO2 tank...used for air suspension or air horns....basically...super compressed air at like 2000psi.. EDIT: AND no need for an on board compressor.

IT is a scuba tank you fools. What do you think is strong enough to hold that pressure but a scuba tank.


*Edit* Shane and JR are the fools in question. Original poster was correct it is in fact a scuba duba tank

If it was a different design it would be cool, but I'm not crazy about them at the moment. Post more pics. of them and they'll probably grow on me.

no that looks funny. but i think LED's making the shape of the taillight inside the taillight. like following around the inside of the edges on the taillight would look good. if that makes sense.

with the reverse light still in the middle

Shut up you Miley Cyrus pleasuring yourself foo! HAHA. Think about it...sure..it's also used as a scuba tank, but where did those high pressure tanks first was used? That's right...shops and steel yards for torches. BEFORE Jacques Cousteau used it as an underwater breathing apparatus.

/end attempt at own.
