i just ordered these new tanks and they are in at a GREAT PRICE...i know many of you have heard of flexible alternatives by now but i want to spread my stoke. they are built to perfectly fit in an 02 x star or new x2. the large ones in the rear, the small ones with all the fittings under the front seats perfectly! i am plumbing them in without any additional pumps etc...best part is they are leakproof...here are some pics of just the sacs before install. ill post more once they are in and full...
they were made by ty bonner. give him a call at:
818 504 7385

How much do they weigh?

i am estimating the back to be about 650 to 700 lbs per sack and the front to be about 250-275 per sack. i had the backs built to remove the stock tanks, thats why one fitting is on the bottom and one on the top. formerly, i was running fat sacs with tanks and tube sacs up front but i wanted to go custom. these things are sweet and the vinyl is so thick and durable. i should have pics very soon installed. Cost is very reasonable, it depends on how many fittings and dimensions etc. i can assure you that it is well worth it since its almost the same as regular sacs...they have like one inch seams with stitching...these are not gonna ever bust or leak!!! call him and tell him gene sent you..hell hook you up

i am removing the rear tanks and simply putting these in place...simple enough...for the fronts, i am putting the overflow line from the center tank as a fill for these and then exiting out the boat with the other connector on top of the new tank..they should cyphon as they are on empty with the stock tank. if they dont, i had another fitting put on the bags to serve as a drain hole that i can plump to a bilge pump and "t" into the overflow line as an exit with no problem...

he will build these to fit any boat. you give him your specs and hell build it..call him and tell him you want something similar to genes but with your dimensions, hell understand

Did you end up losing all your rear storage?
 
By Playaz Club (hydrotek) on Friday, March 26, 2004 - 2:23 pm:    Edit Post Delete Post
no i didnt lose it at all. i have storage on top of the bags and they are durable to handle it and also have more storage when pulling the boat on the trailer because there literally is nothing back there. should have pics next week and its sweet!
