I just moved a 75G tank in my MINI... lame excuse. Joon, How much you want for the 75G? I could be interested. Having a hard time finding a bigger tank for my basement. Everybody with giant tanks on CL has been impossible to deal with.

If there is a will, there is a way. I sold my 125gal to someone with a mazda 6 wagon. I was a little surprised that it went in there.

You are definitely not getting a 75gal in that car. We were lucky to get the 36"x18" tank there there. You don't need a truck.. You need an SUV.. Mine is for sale.. LOL

You may get the 75 in but it may be a problem closing the hatch.

yea good point, come to think of it i couldent shut the hatch with my 40b bc it has such a dramatic rake in the back. Not a big deal if its a short ride tho.
my step father has a jeep compass i could borrow as well, huge cargo area.
