Default air tanks found

looking for something to put under the dually box between frame rails for extra air capacity.

mostly been looking for the bulk air tanks from semi tractors

let me know if you guys have something lying around. I don't want to pay the tractor scrap yard prices for something used (they've been wanting $80 for a used one...)

either one larger single tank or multiple smaller ones... looking to be around 10-12 gallons for my OBA setup on the tow rig.

Thanks,
Jake

Dimensions and price? Can't say if it will work unless I know how big the tank is haha. Can pm me a price if you would rather do that...

Good to know. I only plan to run up to 140. I think my relays are set to 125+ fudge factor

I just went out and got dimensions and the tank is 31 inches long and about 33 inches around. It also has 2 mounting brackets and 10 or 12 threaded holes in it for fittings or plugs. I can text you pics if you wanna pm me your phone number. otherwise I could probably get em posted on here with a little effort

Yep you're right I was just giving him the measurements all the way around so he could tell if it would fit for what he's doing.
