Aluminum Coolant tanks?

I've seen a few on trucks but haven't seen any marketed? These custom pieces or am I not looking in the right places?

Re: Aluminum Coolant tanks?

yep looked and jegs and summit.. and I looked at the pics of the Innovative setup it looks like a over the counter cylinder one that they may have welded a fitting on to make a nice pretty connection to re-attach the coolant line off the intake. Which will be no problem to make something work I was really looking for a bolt on piece to either find out what capacity everyone was running... To either make my own or if the price was right just order one... But I am tired of looking really I may just go ahead and order a new ford one...

I use an '05 Winstar tank. Close to the same capacity and gives me a bit more room for other things. Dealer item.....cheaper than the the aluminum.

I have a used stock tank with cap (cheap) if anyone is looking.
