    Boston Tank specializes in tanks for straight trucks, if you're thinking of going that route.

    Just curious,if your planning to service fire camps.When I was a wildland ff some of the older guys wanted to buy a tanker when they retired.To my knowledge none ever did.

    Can you use a plastic tank? Or is that gaurenteed to have odor? Plastic is way cheaper than SS.

    Where do you live? Does the tank have to be new or would a used one in good shape be acceptable? Is the 3500 gallon an absolute limit or will you take a 4000 gallon tank?

    I live in Northern California. Used in good condition would be fine assuming it fit the truck
