Maybe an off road shop. I've seen them in there before but they are proud of them $$.

Anchorage or Fairbanks? Auto Trim Design might have one in Fairbanks, everything they sell is kinda pricey though. Or maybe try craigslist.

Northern Tool has some inexpensive tanks, but shipping to AK may be steep.

How about a used tank (salvage yard?) from an HDT (Heavy Duty Class 8 Truck).
Usually they are in the 100-150 gal range and would have fuel line fittings.

I bet that 6 Robblees,Truckwell, Alaska Custom Truck or Bobs Services would have one. Better yet, head out with out one and go to Chico California and get one at Transferflow.

You can get them shipped to Ak quite easily. Use Linden and have it delivered to Tacoma.

I was going to try them this week, I leave in about 3.5 weeks so I do not have the time to ship something like that up here. I would love a transfer flow but driving over to cali would be pointless by the time I get there. I am not heading west I need to go east.

I love my Transfer flow and I'm getting ready to order another one.

Shipping could be a bit spendy though.

Go to Alaska Industrial Hardware in Anchorage and pick up a Tradesman 110 gallon L-tank and also a Flow right 15 GPM pump and you will be set. Figure you will spend about $600-$700. I bought one of these units like this set up for $400 and I have not seen another used one that good yet. If you don't want to spend the money I can give you a couple 55gal drums from my work and you can buy a $150 hand pump and pump it out of the drums as you drive down.

Juat a side note I came up from Montana a couple years ago in my 05 pulling about 14,000 lbs. I filled my 110 gallon L-tank in MT, then contined to fill up just the truck until I got to Dawon Creek, toped of the truck and with 110 gal in the tank I made it all the way to Wasilla with out having to fill up. The tank more than paid for itself.

Hope that helps. Shoot me a PM if you want some drums. :thumbsup
