I emailed the manufacturer and there rep said that. Out of curiosity, what does it ssay on yours as to where it was manufacturered. Yes, extreme air are expensive but they are made to us military spec and can be mounted in any position and are completely waterproof. water proof is a nice feature for a fram rail mount in my case cause i do have occasion to ford creeks.
So, five gallon does the job then? I was wondering what size would have sufficient capacity without going over board.
