Might be new idea

So I dont know if anyone has brought this up but I get sick and tired of having to stop for water or packing water bottles and having to look for it so - My idea is to mount a 10 gallon container of some sort (cooler probably)in my bed of the truck and hook up a washer fluid pump (new one obviously) to a switch and run a line through my truck and have a cool chrome nozzle somewhere on my dash and presto flip the switch and out comes water!

I will have a base for the cup or bottle to sit in so it can fill up, thinking of even hooking up a little filter and will def hook up a 10a fuse.

What do you guys think?

Figure I will start it in a week or two.

Ps I got a new ranger for those who dont know.

Get a camelback and hang it on the back of your seat. Im thinking 10 gallons of water will prob start tasting alot like plastic after a day or two.

Cool idea, but like said above I think it'd taste okay for the first day or so but after that it will be warm plastic tasting water! Camelbaks are awesome, I just load mine up with ice cubes and it stays cold for a long time!
