Future plan is to add two more disconnects .. one up front, off to the side of the grill ... and one to the rear bumper ..

This post is way late (2011 April).

I got tired of propane bottles clattering, pinging, rolling, etc. etc., so I decided to build and install a propane bottle storage
container.

I decided to mount it under the elevated deck, next to the fridge. That way it would not block the airflow around the Engel.

The storage container will hold 3 Coleman type propane bottles (no more bottle movement)

Material (all from Lowes):

1 - 4" diameter x 24" black pipe
1 - 4" diameter rubber end cap (clamped to pipe)
1 - 4" threaded plastic end cap (glued to pipe)
1 - 4" threaded plastic end plug
2 - metal straps (of your choice)
2 - pcs of bicycle inner tubes cut to the appropriate length ( to cover the metal straps)
4 - mounting screws or bolts (your choice)

Some pics attached:

Installed Bilstein shocks in the front (blew one out on the Red Creek run), rebuilt upper and lower control arms both front and rear,
AND ... reworked the rear spring spring perch to get rid of that annoying squeak.
