I am about to fit a replacement tank - any good ideas on what to do with the original tank? I assume it is not worth much.

Have one in my shed that does nothing but collect dust. Might need it one day I suppose. Am watching for responses eagerly.
Good Luck

Replaced my standard tank a few weeks ago ,threw the old tank out at the dump and to my surprise there was several others there , the local TJM store must have done a clean up.Seems like a good place for them.

You sell it to a panel beater.
For example I sold the front bumper bar assembly from my Mitsubishi to a panel beater for $500.
If you have a reasonably popular vehicle, it will not take you long to find a panel beater that has a vehicle in for repair and is looking for a bargain. Whenever I get anything fitted to my vehicle I always insiste on getting every single piece they take off as I sell it to panel beaters. If I don't do it, the place yo uare getting your stuff fitted does and they then make mega bucks out of you. I cannot believe how many people don't worry about taking all the bits that come off. The place that fitted whatever you bought is laughing at you all the way to the bank.

Rodeoowner that is a genuine Mitsubishi bullbar. They were offering the bull bar and 2,200kg 50mm square hitch towbar for $995 at the time of purchase so grabbed it. The paint finish is a two tone charcoal grey hammer finish. Looks really good. Was pleased when I saw it fitted, as I thought it would just be plain black. The Triton 2.8L diesel cab/chassis - no body, with air, bull bar, tow bar, bonnet protector, delivered was $23,480.

CJ.

From what Vehicle? Some stock tanks are sought after like GQ ones, they put them in Lux's since they are 95 ltr... Simple mod to fit.

Maybe post it up somewhere for $30 someoen may want it.
I got a spare GQ one for $30 since they have a habit of splitting.
