My valves(one for horns and one for locker) and compressor are mounted in my toolbox along with my Haldey horns. My tank is my rear bumper. I'll get some pictures up later.

Here are a few pictures of mine, sorry they are blurry. Mathematically I figure the tank to be just under 15 gallons. It takes about 6 minutes to fill it from 0-105psi.

It is 1/4" thick, good luck putting a hole in this tank. The end caps are bulletproof(resistant) 1/4" plate from the gunhole covers on a V-100 Commando.

Is it not obvious?
That's what happens when you don't use your brain and hook a tow strap to a tow ball. It's how people get killed.

I was stuck. I was getting pulled out by an f-250 with a pintle hitch(the style with the ball), I didn't know at the time, but the jackass that was pulling me in the f250 had a 5/8" shaft ball in a pintle hitch built for a 1" shaft ball. The ball cocked in the hitch and ripped out. It looked like he only had the nut on a few threads.

I agree, somewhat. You have to do what you have to do sometimes, but if I had know that he didn't have the right ball I wouldn't have let him pull me. I had a Toyota trying and a Jeep trying, even at the same time a couple times. The entire hitch ripped off of the Jeep. It wasn't a ball, it was the entire receiver along with a pintle hitch. So before you accuse me of not using my brain(if you look I don't have a ball on my truck) maybe ask about the circumstances.

Now on the other hand, you will never see me pull on a ball again and I agree that it is dumb and you shouldn't do it.

I wasn't intending to call you out and call you stupid or anything, just trying to prove a point. Someone will look at it and it will stick in their head one day when they or a friend are stuck.
The other person your truck is connected to is the most danger to you, since (if it breaks) it's coming back toward you.

Any time I hook up to someone, I tell them they are responsible for what they hook their end up to if it breaks. But if I'm not satisfied with where they hook it up I will 'suggest' a better spot, and remind them again if anything breaks it is their responsibility. Plus I will not pull until everyone is clear out of the way.
