Plenty of options out there, worth a look at them all.

Sounds good. My only caution with bladders is don't get clear plastic. If the sun gets onto them the water can become unhealthy pretty quick. No light means minimal germ growth.

We use a 40Ltr footwell water tank from FrontRunner in the rear of our JK Unlimited suits us just fine with 1 fill point and 1 feed pipe on each side, very neat you can still use rear seat, although the leg room is somewhat restricted and it keeps the weight down low for stability, always been cautious of using external tanks due to security and integrityof supply, but maybe thats just me?

Great information, thanks everyone, I couldn't have found this forum at a better time for kitting out my truck.

After considering all the options discussed I have just bought 2 scepter cans from ebay. Seemed a good price, unissued Dutch army stock, £21 + £8 delivery. I have ordered 2. If anyone wants one search for "Dutch Water Can".

I will fit them securely in the pickup and use one of the small holes in the lid to put a pipe through to feed an on demand water pump. This will give me the convenience of a built in water tanks with the option to remove for refilling or if the pump breaks. Having 2 will give me redundancy if one leaks or becomes contaminated.

Standard kit in motorhomes to fill water tank when hose not available-------too bulky for us and really only one use--------we carry a couple or more of the 5L bottles that you buy drinking water in-------soooo good to carry water in--also for filling tank------surprisingly strong and VERY light----when bought in Spain/Portugal very cheap, with 5L of drinking water free Laughing

Yep, I do exactly the same in Spain. As you say, you get 5 litres of free water as a bonus! cheers
